British media outlet Piers Morgan is deeply dissatisfied with news of the UK’s prime minister’s travel advice during the curfew. The consultant, Dominic Cummings, is accused of violating the antitrust laws at the end of March when he drove 400 miles to his parents.
“If Boris does not run Cummings today, then I will declare that the curfew is over and run to meet my parents (two meters away) for the first time in 12 weeks,” Piers wrote on his Twitter page, clearly dissatisfied with the state of affairs.
“I’m not having one rule for these clowns & another for the rest of us.”
If Boris doesn’t fire Cummings today, then I will deem the Lockdown over & drive down to see my parents (from a 2m distance) for the first time in 12 weeks. I’m not having one rule for these clowns & another for the rest of us. pic.twitter.com/EMGb9ETTVf

Cummings’ resignation has been called for, but British media sat outside of his home in London today. A questioner told him no matter how it looks, this was a matter of doing the right thing.
“It’s not about what you [the media] think.”
Downing Street 10 issued a statement stating that Cummings had the full right to seek accommodation for his four-year-old son with his parents, as he had suspected that both he and his wife were infected with the coronavirus.
“His family had been asking for his help so he stayed close to her while they were attending him.”
