I have less of a problem with Dominic Cummings travelling to his parents home since he has said he did not stop on the way and did not stay with his parents but self-isolated in a separate building. BUT I do have issues with his return to London. There was no reason why he couldn’t stay where he was and give his advice online. The rest of the country has had to do that. Why did he need to return? If he’d stayed where he was then the trip to Barnard Castle would also have been unnecessary. The honourable thing would be to admit he made a mistake not try to justify it. It’s not in the national interest for advice to be undermined in such a manner. He should go.
