I know, hardly the priority right now is it.

The Pl tests have been sourced elsewhere so doubt very much they will be included in any numbers ... for me although not important in the scheme of things ... it will be a nice to have and a distraction from all the other negative stuff as long as people are kept safe

This seems to be an old story now, and we have moved on. But I just got a response from my MP on my letter. She is hard core Brexit, but not one of Johnson's team right now. As far as i know she has not gone public per se (although no doubt this will get out). Its a bit weaselly but have to say it did surprise me.

"Good Afternoon,

Thank you for your recent email. I have heard from a large number of constituents, many of whom have discussed their own personal experiences and sacrifices made, as well as that of their family and friends, during lockdown.
 
Dominic Cummings has explained the events relating to his trip to Durham and why he took the actions he did. Given the many sacrifices people have made during this period, I fully appreciate why you and others take a different view, and feel so strongly about his actions, and I have conveyed that strength of feeling directly to the Prime Minister and other members of the Government.
 
Whilst the future of Dominic Cummings is a matter for him and the Prime Minister - had I been in the same situation, I would have resigned my position.
 
Thank you again for your email.
 
 Kind Regards

Esther McVey"


 

Felt like this one has a twist at the end!

 

I got a reply from my MP, Rupa Huq, but didn't post as she's Labour and so it wasn't particularly surprising. It was very long and she was fuming though!

Yeah. She is pretty self focused and typically only does stuff to further her own interests. Which is where I thought the note was going till the last sentence. So my optimistic thought is that she is reading that DC may well be forced out/resign and then she will be seen to have been on the 'right' side of history. But could be bollocks.....I don't really understand Tory MP's. 🙃

Just had a thought....are testing numbers including the mass football player and staff testing....? 

No. Their testing system is completely outside of the public health testing.

This is my response from my MP, the Father of the House, Peter Bottomley:

 

Thank you getting in touch to share your view of the actions of Dominic Cummings.

I am grateful for the many constituents, yourself included, who have made their views clear and I wish you well. It is easy to understand the strength of concern many share over the actions of Dominic Cummings and the Government's reaction. I have not met Dominic before nor would I wish to defend him.

There is quite a volume of correspondence relating to Covid19. We are trying to deal without delay with urgent casework. Responding to you may necessarily have taken longer than usual. For this we ask for your understanding and thank you for your patience.

As a nation, we have taken the necessary actions to reduce the peak and throttle back the transmission of Covid19. We now must work to restore normal life as much as possible whilst remaining vigilant and careful to take the precautions needed to prevent a second wave of illness.

As Member of Parliament, I will continue to do all I can to help those who come to me for assistance.

My team and I do our best to highlight policies that need correcting to the Prime Minister, Chancellor and other responsible Ministers whenever appropriate, to push for fairness for all. I could list a number, mainly in the health field, that were successful. We have had a number of successes.

Many have concerns about the situation with Dominic Cummings, with condemnation of his actions and some with. I appreciate all who have taken the time to write and I wish to assure you your views are taken into consideration. In my life of public service, I do not recall asking for a resignation, regardless of party. It is not my intention to start now. This will disappoint some calling for resignations.

I share sympathy for each household that has been affected directly or indirectly by COVID-19.  The pain of this pandemic has touched us. My doctor daughter volunteered to pause her hospital consultant role to help on the frontline. Friends of ours have died; parents of colleagues have died. None of us are immune to the far reaching effects of this disease.

Some have been forced to make heart-breaking decisions during this lockdown period, with painful separation from loved ones whilst they are at their most vulnerable. We share in gratitude and  understanding that these have been vital to reduce the spread of the virus.

This has been particularly difficult for those who were alone during illness or left to grieve alone at their time of greatest need. Many still face dreadful hardship. They need help. My team and I want you to know that we are ready to do all we can to try to assist you.

We can give a general thanksgiving for our communal resolve to abide by the guidelines to keep those around us safe and healthy. Some may join a general confession that they inadvertently acted beyond the guidance or the advice in a stressed or panicked situation, or out of fear for a loved one believing this was necessary.

We can review the overall figures and ascertain that even with some actions at odds with the rules, the overall task of helping to combat the disease has been working. This is down to all who stayed at home, protected the NHS and practised social distancing when making necessary journeys.

The role of the media in this story has received some attention and criticism. I remain a vocal supporter of the BBC and our national and local media in their efforts to hold public figures and government bodies to account. I share in trust for our Civil Service and local government.

It is a wry thought that the success of the messaging when lockdown came owes something to a person who is now the news story. Sometimes on cases like this, we might trust in our own individual judgements rather than any trial by media.

I try to offer balanced opinions and understand all points of view. It is not always straightforward or easy. I will fight for causes that are just. When needed, I hope to be someone you can trust. All the time I aim to be a representative for everyone, regardless of whether or however they vote.

We will slowly return to some semblance of normality. We must build confidence in our Government and trust in those making decisions which so greatly impact our lives, particularly in these unprecedented times. I continue to do what I can to represent the wide-ranging interests and views of constituents, pursuing decisions that are beneficial for our shared lives.

Constituents are reminded to include their full name, address and telephone number in correspondence. Time allowing, I am pleased to be able to listen directly to those sharing their views over the telephone. Do share your telephone number if this is your preference and indicate in any email.

Thank you for reading this response and for sharing your views.

Yours sincerely,





Sir Peter Bottomley

 

My Dad got exactly the same response too.

Scotland have relaxed their measures, two households can now meet outdoors including private gardens if socially distancing, up to 8 people.  Maybe we will follow suit?

They’re being tested twice a week. On balance probably still safer for them and less risk of transmission than for those who can’t work from home, have gone back to work and are practicing social distancing, but don’t know which of their colleagues have it.

Agreed. His language is getting stronger now when talking about Boris. He’s waited for Boris to make a mistake and is starting to apply the pressure.

Groups of 6 allowed to meet outside?

Yep, including peoples gardens. You can go through a house to get to a garden but can't go into someone's house for any other reason.

I just do not understand how they are allowing so many places to reopen and loosening restrictions when the daily deaths have been on the rise again the last couple of days. There’s still more people dying each day than there was when we went into lockdown in March. 
 

I just do not understand

It's worrying that's for sure. Is it possible it's a delay from the bank holiday weekend?

 

Still getting questions on DC!
