PIERS MORGAN says that Boris Johnson must sack Dominic Cummings or he will end his own personal lockdown.
The outspoken ITV presenter took to Twitter today (May 23) to vent his anger over the revelations that Johnson’s chief aide flouted lockdown rules by travelling from London to his parent’s home in Durham, whilst presenting symptoms of Covid-19.
Morgan posted: “If Boris doesn’t sack Cummings today, then I will deem the lockdown over and drive to see my parents (from a 2m distance) for the first time in 12 weeks. I’m not having one rule for these clowns and another for the rest of us.”
The former newspaper editor has been having an ‘on air’ battle with the government on his breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, over their refusal to put up cabinet ministers to be grilled by him over the coronavirus pandemic.
That followed a variety of instances where the tough-talking host exposed some serious issues like over care home deaths and coronavirus testing.
The Cummings story has fed Morgan’s flames which should make for some lively early-morning television next week, as well as people wondering whether the promise to visit his parents is just a wee bit more of Twitter bluster as opposed to reality.

Well said Piers. I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan. But I respect that you say it as it is.
This isn’t just a question about Cummings future, this is about the future of Johnson. If he thinks he can just say that it’s ok for them to do what they want no matter what the rules are then he has to accept the fact that his job as PM is over. The public won’t accept it. There will be a question of a public vote of no confidence in the government. The law is very clear on this, it isn’t a matter of opinion. Cummings broke the law. It shouldn’t just be him resigning…. he should be arrested. It’s the LAW for crying out loud. He was witnessed at his parents front door, he was witnessed in his parents garden. He was NOT at a separate residence. The PM has lied about this. The police did go to his parents house & they did say he was there. This has all been reported. Arrest him!
Can the Tory supporter not delete my comments please. Cummings broke the law & thats a fact.
