Pressure on Dominic Cummings to quit over lockdown breach
Exclusive: PM’s adviser was with parents away from London home when he had coronavirus symptoms

Police spoke to Dominic Cummings about breaching the government’s lockdown rules after he was seen in Durham, 264 miles from his London home, despite having had symptoms of coronavirus, the Guardian can reveal.

At the time, the government had instructed people not to travel and to stay at their family homes. Cummings, however, was seen in Durham. A member of the public is understood to have seen him and made a complaint to the police.

Downing Street has previously refused to disclose where Cummings was staying during the lockdown.

The witness, who did not wish to be named, told the Guardian: “I was really annoyed. I thought it’s OK for you to drive all the way up to Durham and escape from London. I sympathise with him wanting to do that, but other people are not allowed to do that. It’s one rule for Dominic Cummings and one rule for the rest of us.”

The sightings raise questions about the government’s commitment to the “stay at home” message it was repeating to the public in the first stage of the lockdown. The Guardian has already revealed that the communities secretary, Robert Jenrick, travelled to his parents’ home on the same weekend. Jenrick said he was delivering medicine and essential supplies.

Downing Street did not respond to repeated requests for comment, but a friends of Mr Cummings said: “He isn’t remotely bothered by this story, it’s more fake news from the Guardian.

“There is zero chance of him resigning.”

Coronavirus: Half of Fox News viewers think Bill Gates is using pandemic to microchip them, survey suggests
Over 40 per cent of Donald Trump voters who took part in poll also believe the conspiracy theory

The theory rests on the belief that Mr Gates created the disease as a tool to vaccinate the population, secretly implant people with devices for surveillance and take control of the global health system.

No, no, honest guys, it's not Bill Gates it's Larry Page and Sergey Brin  :iroll:
