There are tweets saying that Cummings sister Alice is director of the company running the track and trace scheme. Surely this cant be true or questions would be being asked about impartiality in the tender process? (The sister who was allegedly dropping his shopping off in Durham)?

In it up to his scrawny little neck. I shall certainly not be downloading the app as things stand. Nothing this shower has put in place has been effective or timely in any event, as the resulting carnage of lives lost testifies.

I think there is a link as you describe https://mobile.twitter.com/happymonkey1874/status/1264777402460315650

There are another couple of threads you may be interested in, ones the NHS Clinical Caseworker thread, the other is a thread here on coronavirus mentioning the app itself but they're a long way down.

Is it true? Why is no one high profile asking about this or confirming it is not true?

Yep. There is a very definite link. He's as slimy as they come.

No. On Twitter they are saying it's a lady called Alice who married a Richard Cummings apparently

Placemarking this thread.

I don't think anyone has actually proven that this Alice Cummings woman is related to him? It's not an entirely uncommon name; I've known a few people with it in my own tiny life!

Is he known as Dick @Butterfly44 ?

Maybe he will address this in his statement later? Doubt he will though.
Either way, can someone in the media or opposition please ask the government why we are wasting months on a brand new track and trace app when other countries are already using apps that are readily available and proven to work?
Plus of course, one of the 5 criteria to be met before schools could reopen was that we would all have a functioning track and trace app on our phones. That won't be happening before next Monday, so why are the government allowed to reopen schools without any opposition or questioning?
What happened to the free press and the opposition?

It’s not true. He doesn’t have a sister called Alice. Cummings in this Alices married surname. Could still be family potentially but it’s not his sister ..

Cummings is BFFs with Ben Warmer who also attends SAGE meetings.

Ben Warner’s brother is Marc Warner who runs Faculty who I think are involved in the tracing app.
