Dominic Cummings has apparently responded to the backlash over his literal 250+ mile journey to Durham. According to The Guardian, Boris Johnson ‘s top aide told numerous outlets that he made the drive to the area to reportedly “test his eyesight.”
The controversy continues to grow even though Cummings’ feels not all rules apply to everyone. Widely mocked — the following quotes are catching steam online as per reports.
I’ve seen some of the media over the last couple of days, and I’m not surprised that a lot of people are very angry.
I hope and think that today, when I’ve actually explained all the circumstances about it, I think people realise this is a very complicated, tricky situation.
I can understand that some people will argue I should have stayed at home in London. I understand these views, I understand the intense hardship and sacrifice the entire country has gone through. However, I respectfully disagree.
The legal rules inevitably do not cover all circumstances, including those that I found myself in.
