The rules on exercise have changed. You can take as much exercise as you want and you can take it where you want, assuming you are in England. You cant take your exercise in Wales or Scotland if you live in England.

I don’t really care what he’s done, but the graffiti put outside his home on the road was actually not done by a disgruntled member of the public, it was done by a Guardian photographer, who it seems then went on to sell the photo. I am all for a free press but my understanding was they are there to report the news rather than create it.

I would do exactly what he did if the circumstances were the same for me.

If he travelled 2 miles rather than the 270 odd, then no-one, other than some remoaners, would have cared.

What he did was put his family first.

Now I know that's not politically correct in this situation, but I struggle with anyone who criticises anyone else for putting their family first.

I dont have to...I live about a Hundred yards from the English Border and most of My family live just over the Border, contrary to what our Leader Jimmy Krankie might pretend I'm still 100% British and once I'm over that Border I leave Scottish law behind and I'm under English law.

And is it only me getting miffed off with the press?

To me they are merely trying to point score rather than inform the good folks of the UK.

No, I agree with you......they always forget to add that the Police after reviewing the evidence never ever charged him with breaking lockdown, the Guys an innocent (If not Naive) man.

Good piece on Spiked (below) about how the media's various claims about Dominic Cummings have collapsed, and how you won't read about the true facts.

Anyway, it's years since I really watched the TV news much, and hardly watch TV at all now. So when lockdown kicked off, one of my first acts of belt tightening was to send my TV licence back for a refund. Never heard a peep. But they keep sending me emails saying that my licence will expire on Sunday unless I reinstate my Direct Debit.

But they're not getting another penny.

Have been putting the TV on occassionally to watch some Covid news, but just underlines that I'm glad I sent the licence back.

Example - headline on BBC News at lunchtime: "Trump threatens to shoot protesters". Bollocks, he threatened to shoot *looters*. Trump's tweet was OTT, and he is an ignorant blowhard, but plain misrepresentation by the BBC.

Anyway:

The media story about Dominic Cummings has collapsed

https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/05/2 ... collapsed/

This has been a truly shocking week for British journalism.

And now the nutter in charge of the RMT is blaming Cummings for train chaos in the south. #-o

A steep rise in train passengers has resulted in "chaos" on services to Bournemouth on Saturday, according to the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union.

Operating company Cross Country has been forced to seek additional trains to cope, the union said.

Its general secretary Mick Cash said the lockdown conduct of the PM's top aide Dominic Cummings was part of the reason.

"The hopeless mixed messaging from the government and the impact of the Cummings affair has resulted in predictable chaos on the railway today with Bournemouth at the eye of the storm," he said.
