He got the short straw today!

FurForksSake Sat 23-May-20 16:27:11

It's going.... badly.

HappyLemonSadLemon Sat 23-May-20 16:27:37

Is this the daily briefing?

StealthPolarBear Sat 23-May-20 16:27:43

"I do BUSES! buses and TRAINS"

Yes, briefing.
Four year old child's welfare. Every other parent has had to suck it up.

I think they're both doing as well as they possibly could tbh. He's dropped them in it.

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.

I wonder at what point in the day they decide who is doing these things? Did they wake up this morning thinking, oh FUCK its my turn. Or have the cabinet spent the day in a mad game of hide and seek and Shapps lost?

They think if they throw the words 'safeguarding' and 'young child' around then they're beyond reproach.

But he's not doing very well...

flapjackfairy Sat 23-May-20 16:33:35

Can somebody explain . Please ?

flapjackfairy Sat 23-May-20 16:34:29

Oh it's ok. Seen briefing on early today !

Dom Cummings drove to Durham from london with Covid to stay with family so they could help him and his (not ill) wife look after their son (aged 4).

StealthPolarBear Sat 23-May-20 16:34:31

He'll come out of this one going RIGHT that's my turn done, never again.
If he was well enough to drive 260 miles without stopping for a wee wee he was well enough to care for his child

I’m flabbergasted by the response to this.
The guidance seemed to me to say “suck it up” in exactly the case they’re talking about.
Surely a better option for DC would have been for his sister to come to them if needed.

I can’t believe he’s not being vilified as per the Scottish chief medical officer.

Oh thanks for update

AnyFucker Sat 23-May-20 16:35:15

Those two must have been thrown out there under gunpoint smile

They stayed in a separate house just the three of them so that his sister and niece could deliver food to them.

Still they should not have left their home in London.

Does Johnson hate Grant Shapps??

blobbyface Sat 23-May-20 16:36:22

Does anyone else think Grant Shapps looks like Tony Blair?

FurForksSake Sat 23-May-20 16:36:38

Well I imagine he has no friends in London that could have delivered food for them..

StealthPolarBear Sat 23-May-20 16:37:12

Yes I wondered that, couldn't the sister go down to them. I suppose they'd argue he had the house in Durham.
The police say they've spoken to them.
