JUST when you thought the Government's handling of the coronavirus crisis couldn't sink any lower, along comes Dominic Cummings.

At worst, the Prime Minister's top aide is a first-class hypocrite for breaking the very lockdown rules he helped to write.

At best - if you accept his reasons for that journey - he is a selfish sod. Because what type of man would want his elderly parents to be around a child potentially infected with a virus which can be lethal for the old? Not a very admirable one.
