It's heart wrenching knowing they died alone. I am sure Hancock is not the only minister who has broken social distance rules. He's the only one that's been caught.
The thing that made me angry about lockdown was the situation with Cummings. People up and down the country were very very desperate to see their loved ones before they passed on but lockdown law prevented that but what do we hear, Cummings, Boris most senior advisor breaking lockdown rules to be with his parents and nothing is done. He gets no warning, no sacking, nothing because Boris defends him to the hilt.
Hancock was an idiot for what he did but what Cummings did was 1000 times worse because he travelled all the way to Durham, knowing he and his wife had covid-19 whilst lockdown measures were in effect and he refused to admit he did wrong. Boris defending him was the last straw. Any body gets me vote except the conservatives.
Again, a great post and so sorry to hear your sad events.
