Tory Defence Secretary Ben Wallace was seen this morning – he did it in full view of massed media filming ministers on their way to today’s Cabinet meeting – completely ignoring physical distancing to shake hands with a colleague or acquaintance:
When Dominic Cummings was caught in multiple breaches of lockdown, his dangerous example meant that huge numbers of people felt justified in disregarding anti-coronavirus measures, putting the public in clear danger when tens of thousands had already died needlessly.
Now, as infection rates start to spike again and the Tories press ahead with the return to school and workplaces in spite of clear evidence that it will put children and their families at risk and drive the ‘R rate’ higher, Wallace’s behaviour cannot pass without action. He must resign or be sacked.
