    Well BBC 5 Live are talking about it so I assume they’ve checked.

    If he said “so be it” then he’s a cunt, eugenics or not.

    He's involved in politics so, by definition, he is bound to be a "cunt".

    You obviously couldn't be bothered.

    If you think that's not breaking isolation I don't think you understand what "stay at home" means. Who's going to look after the child if Cummings and his missus were "incapacitated"? If they were "about to be incapacitated" were they fit to drive and - given how quickly people can be incapacitated by it - what if they'd not made it to Durham?

    He wasn't ill at the time. His wife was though. I'm sure you can confirm this yourself. It's not difficult.

    No, talking as if it was a fact and had some lawyer on to ask if that would mean he hadn’t broken lockdown rules. No mention of twitter.

    Lots of families have children with autism, they didn't all drive to Durham


    We can play this game with every excuse until you accept that the people made these sacrifices and he broke the rules. There is no excuse because other people made the sacrifices.

    Didn’t say A

    There is a low risk, you don’t understand risk. If R is 1 for example then with all the people one encounters it is only passed to one other person ie a low risk

    It’s an arbitrary figure made up to enable people to still go shopping. Some countries have 1m some 1.5 some 2, the science isn’t exact, 5m won’t be enough if someone shouts coughs or sneezes

    I was comparing the risk to wider society of one small family in a car and how that would spread it relative to hordes of people in parks or fools in your face in shops, on buses, tubes etc

    You didn’t land a punch. Checking people’s join date is about your level.

    You’re clearly quite old, as is Karen, and worried about the virus - it’s normal to see things through the narrow prism of how a situation may affect you but for the purpose of healthy debate it’s important to see the bigger picture too and even though people disagree it’s healthy to respect other opinions without resorting to dipper, rag, wum insults like a bullying idiot in a pub who doesn’t have the intellect to argue his point and lashes out.
