It’s a massive slap in the face. Boris Johnson’s top adviser Dominic Cummings flouted his own government’s lockdown rules – driving from London to Durham and back after he and his family developed symptoms of coronavirus. But instead of calling him out, Boris Johnson is twisting the rules to defend him. To get out of this pandemic as safely as possible we all need to do our bit. But knowing there’s one set of rules for Dominic Cummings and another for the rest of us puts all of that at risk. People have already started pointing to Cummings’s actions as a reason for breaking lockdown rules. The Prime Minister needs to sort this out, and fast. That’s where we all come in. Boris Johnson will be hoping this story just goes away. But a massive open letter, signed by all of us, asking him to admit that Dominic Cummings’s actions were wrong – and tell us what he’s going to do about it – will show him this isn’t going away. Friend, together we can help show Boris Johnson that the public expects him to put public health before politics. People up and down the country have made personal sacrifices big and small to help the country through this crisis. Parents have had to handle homeschooling and childcare while sick with coronavirus. Families have had to endure the unimaginable pain of not being at their loved ones’ sides in hospital. And we’ve all made these sacrifices, knowing that we were doing our part to battle this pandemic. It’s the government’s job to protect us. But right now, they’re twisting their messages and undermining the lockdown rules that are meant to keep us safe. If you agree it can’t be one rule for government advisers – and another for the rest of us. Please let me know in a single and simple whattshap message,by giving me your humble opinion,to buildi my mind,because I got a plan to send a correspondance to the premier ministre Boris Johnson,for him to understand my disappointed in his support to his top adviser Mr Dominic Cummings. Thank you for your attention, Jenny Dakosta Van Mputu
