Dominic Cummings: What is the scandal about? – BBC News
The UK prime minister’s most senior adviser has come under fire for travelling across the country during the coronavirus lockdown.
Dominic Cummings drove 260 miles (418km) from London to Durham, and took a 60-mile round trip from Durham to a nearby town on his wife’s birthday – a trip he says he made to test whether his eyesight was good enough to drive.
Mr Cummings is facing calls to resign, both from opposition politicians and members of the governing Conservative Party, whose leader, Boris Johnson, he advises.
In a highly unusual move for an adviser, Mr Cummings gave a press conference on Monday. He said he believed he acted “reasonably” and within the law. He has so far been backed by Mr Johnson and other senior government ministers.
