    How brilliantly weird this post is.

    @Regal Beagle you only answered one of my questions. You stated that you didn’t believe that the sole purpose of Durham Dom’s trip was to test his ability to do a long drive. The second part was... Do you believe that public figures should be held to the highest accountable level when it comes to following their own policy? I acknowledge they shouldn't be treated differently in law. I'm talking here about their job, not their freedom.

    Pinched off Twitter: Fourth member of SAGE breaks ranks Professor Calum Semple says, “Essentially we’re lifting the lid on a boiling pan and it’s just going to bubble over,”. “We need to get it down to simmer before we take the lid off, and it’s too early.” Prof Semple, a memebr of SAGE says: "I think a political decision has been made to tie in with when school was due to start, were everything normal, but it’s not normal" If they are not listening to the SAGE scientists then who are they listening too? I wonder if it’s Durham Dom?

    So you who’ve SAGE are cherry picking sections of advice to support the direction they wish to go?

    True, that was pretty dumb... and as for supporting Durham Dom that’s has certainly tainted him.

    ha... I'm sure that would have been your view had the result gone the way you wanted. Do you believe that public figures should be held to the highest accountable level when it comes to following their own policy? I acknowledge they shouldn't be treated differently in law. I'm talking here about their job, not their freedom.

    Turning away from the fact that the vast majority of the population believe that Durham Dom broke guidelines and the majority of the country thought he should resign. Those are facts that cant be disputed. (Source YouGov poll) Boris has shown himself to be spinless and allowed him to stay in place and therefore weakened the government message on how to stay safe potentially endangering even more lives. Also an undisputed fact (Source YouGov poll) We unfortunately have to now turn back to the fact that this Governments approach has lead us having the highest excess deaths in Europe https://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2020/may/29/excess-deaths-uk-has-one-highest-levels-europe Even designing a "simple message" they got so wrong that the vast majority of people didn't understand it apparently. Incompetent to a scary degree.

    Lets put this Durham Dom thing to bed once and for all. @Regal Beagle Do you believe that Durham Dom travelled to Barnard Castle with his wife and Kid in the back for the SOLE PURPOSE of testing whether he could do a long drive? I'm sure you have answered this before, but I couldn't find it, so apologies for asking again. Please try to refrain from "weasel word" answers about "Part of it potentially not being true" because that means you don't believe it was solely for that purpose.
  15. My absolute dream if Smith did go would be Fiacre Kelleher at Macc... they rave about him as do the D3D4 podcast guys. 6ft 3 tall and 24 years old. They all think he can and will play higher, if that could be via us that would be amazing. Challenge is that could be immediately and he could go to league 1 this summer.

    The police care about matters of law... I don’t believe politicians or unelected bureaucrats Should be treated differently over legal matters. Do you? This is about losing your job because you can’t follow your own guidelines. I don’t think you read the posts on here because you are missing some of the fundamental jigsaw pieces. Find Joe Bs post citing his old job as an example. When you have caught up come back and join back in.

    That all important MIGHT is dependent on whether the Police believed his version of the story about driving his wife and kid to a beauty spot on her birthday solely to test his eyesight. Nobody believes that... not even you.

    The HIGHEST possible standards The police statement says they would have stopped him, and "the officer would have spoken to him, and, having established the facts, likely advised Mr Cummings to return to the address in Durham" That wouldn't be the case if the was nothing wrong. The HIGHEST possible standards. If that had been a member of the public, I would agree with you... but Durham Donm has to be held accountablke to the HIGHEST possible standrds. I have repeated that in bold three times and you continues refuse to acknowledge it. The polls has said, that people have now admitted they are less likely to follow government advice because of Durham Dom's actions. Not great for an advisor. He needs to go because he is now making it harder for the Government to get their safety requirements into the peoples heads and actions... Thats Durham Doms fault. I fully acknowledge that he wont go. Boris has made his bed and must now sleep in it. He would look too weak to step back. But as mentioned, he has handed the opposition a weapon to attack him with for years to come. You are good at this game.... Do you think the people accept Doms actions more or less after today's events? You got this very wrong last time.... care for a second go? I will guess less.... We can debate all you want... Durham Dom has damaged the UK by his actions.

    If lives were at risk because people no longer felt they should bother following Joe’s advice then yes, he should lose his privilege. And if Joes boss knew people would be less likely to follow guidelines because of Joes actions and kept him on despite it endangering lives, he would be a bit of a numpty too. Do you not agree?

    I mean I have been saying this for a while... but yes, I think you have. For clarity, someone who helps devise the guidelines is held at a higher level that is normal people... I’m not sure I bc hold have made that clearer. Should Durham Dom go to prison? No (I don’t think anyone has said that) Is he fit to stay in a job deciding policies and guidelines that we are all now expected to follow. Noooooooo
