    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52782913 No 10 says the PM’s chief aide Dominic Cummings acted in line with coronavirus guidelines when he travelled with Covid-19 symptoms from London to his relatives in Durham during lockdown. A spokesman said it was “essential” for Mr Cummings to ensure he had childcare while he and his wife were unwell. The Durham police chief said it was “unwise” for Mr Cummings to travel to County Durham while infected. Labour has called for a “clear explanation” for Mr Cummings’ actions. Downing Street said Mr Cummings believed he “behaved reasonably and legally” when he made the 260-mile journey from his London home to Country Durham during the lockdown. A No 10 spokesman added: “Owing to his wife being infected with suspected coronavirus and the high likelihood that he would himself become unwell, it was essential for Dominic Cummings to ensure his young child could be properly cared for. “His sister and nieces had volunteered to help so he went to a house near to, but separate, from his extended family in case their help was needed. His sister shopped for the family and left everything outside. “At no stage was he or his family spoken to by the police about this matter, as is being reported.” Police said they attended a property in County Durham, after the Guardian and the Daily Mirror newspapers first reported Mr Cummings had made the trip. Who is Dominic Cummings? Scientist quits role after ‘undermining’ lockdown What are social distancing and self-isolation rules? The government has ordered anyone with coronavirus symptoms to self-isolate at home and not leave – even for essential supplies – for seven days. A Labour spokesman said the government should use the daily Downing Street Covid-19 press conference on Saturday to provide answers over the reports. A statement added: “The public have made extraordinary sacrifices during this pandemic and the lockdown. “It cannot be one rule for those who set them and another for the British people.” Mr Cummings has attended meetings of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) – the scientific body which gives independent advice that shapes the government’s coronavirus response.

    Let me get this right Dominic Cummins and his wife are both infected, therefore they took their child 260 miles in the same car in close contact to his sister to care for his child, am I missing something here, if they are both infected surely the child will have become in contact and possibly infected (unless they cling filmed the child)

    So in theory they have taken an infected child to infect his sister family, so I am assuming his sister family have all isolated for 2 weeks because they have come into contact with an infected person ?

    Health wise the answer is defanately no, finance wise the answer is defanately yes. So how do we square this? The number of those under 45-50 dying is relatively small, although it goes without saying that one death is too many. So my idea, of a way out, is to bring the lockdown to an end for everyone under 45-50 who is healthy but keep it in place for everyone else. There would obviously be problems, like in our house, where young and old live together but nothing is perfect. My worry is that the economy can’t take much more of this lockdown without serious consequences and we need a vibrant economy to pay for things like the NHS. There will never be a perfect solution but I think with the increased testing being offered and the contact app only a couple of weeks away the time is right for things to get back to “normal” soon.

    I have never been normal

    All the times I’d been to a car sales dealership in normal times they have always been sparsely populated and staff have always outnumber customers so something that would be easily fixed. My thoughts though is the government is paying 80% of staff wages and it cost staff 20% plus just getting to work with bus, taxi, fuel, congestion charges and lunch your quids in staying at home.😁

    The sales staff will only get a basic plus commission so imagine financially they are now beginning to feel the pain

    There is no reason why dealerships couldn’t open using some sort of appointment system.

    The government has allowed dealership to operate online, may be they believe  this is sufficient at this phase in the lockdown?

    I don’t see why he has to be at our beck and call 24 hours a day. The ministers and experts are dealing admirably with the daily briefings. Don’t forget that Boris has had the virus too and I suspect is not as well as he makes out.

    I like Boris

    So Motability have 43,000 order, I would imagine the majority of these are repeat orders, probably 35,000 plus car to dispose of in a market due to go into a deep depression, the majority of them probably being diesels.

    Why do not lease some of the low mileage newer vehicles back to Motability customer at a zero AP rate?

    Inform Motability and the insurance company asap, tell them the truth no holds barred, you cannot afford to get involved, as regards you mother was her boyfriend really driving or is he being pressurizes to take the blame for your mother to save her losing her driving licence, at the end of the day he could end up losing his, that assuming he has one.

    If so they are perverting the course of justice and it become a criminal  offence.

    Tell them straight otherwise you may end up getting insurance in the future:

    (a) You did not give your permission,

    (b) You were not aware you mother was abusing the Motability scheme,

    (c) You were not aware your mother had a problem with alcohol,

    and

    (d) You would not have given your mothers boyfriend permission to drive.

    Hopefully you’ll not be punished financially and may still get another car as you didn’t authorise it but they may not let your mother be a named driver again, she has also committed an offence by letting an uninsured person drive the car so police will have to be involved.

    I agree, your mother has been very irresponsible, it is her problem not yours, you need to stand your ground, you did not have any knowledge or give your permission, otherwise you end up being drawn into any legal action or prosecutions.

    A bit of a strange post are you asking a theoretical question or asking advice.

    When you say main driver I have to assume you are not referring to the actual Motability customer, the main driver is just that only the main driver not the Motability customer and is no permission to grant permission.

    If the Motability customer has not been part of or previous knowledge of the action I cannot see it being their fault, I would imagine Motability and the authorities would like to have a long chat with the main driver who gave permission and the uninsured driver ?

    Just my opinion only, I could be completely wrong.

    Oh dear by the time I replied several post were uploaded.

    I agree Elliot my so called local Motability salesman could not have been less interested if he tried, he even tried to charge extra for metallic paint, if it was not for the wife I wanted to used the other Mitsubishi dealer who was more friendly and switched on, however, they are about 30 miles away. He would have no problem selling my allocated car if a private sale came along.

    I have emailed my dealer, apparently only the service department is open, the sales are still closed. ‘Also, Motability has extended everyone’s contracts and requested that no customers are to change their vehicles until further notice. If you have any more questions then please contact Motability as they will have more information to give you’.

    Once we are back I will be in touch.

    As regards my 3rd year service Ford have cancelled it 3 times, I have contacted Motability they have informed due to the current situation that ok.
