London Assembly Conservative leader, Susan Hall, is totally wrong about the public response to Dominic Cummings flouting lockdown rules. He did not act as any other parent. Thousands of parents in the same position have not travelled long distances. The Cummings family had alternatives if they needed care for their child.

It is not just the so-called left wing media that is critical of Cummings, nearly all national newspapers have been critical as well as almost 100 Conservative MPs including my own MP Eleanor Lang!

Ms Hall may have been convinced by Cummings' explanation of his actions but she is one of the very few who is. It sounds hollow and contrived and has destroyed the trust people may have had for the Government.

The public don’t trust this man; nor will they trust a Prime Minister to whom he is the chief advisor.
