Downing Street has confirmed that Dominic Cummings will make a rare statement and take questions on Monday afternoon.
NHS staff members, Bishops and 19 Tory MPs have all called for the resignation of Cummings as Brits were told to “stay at home.”
It has further been alleged that despite Cummings driving 260-miles, a witness claims he saw his at Barnard Castle some 30-miles away on 12 April from his parent’s farm, and again in Durham a week later.
Steve Baker who previously worked with Cummings penned an article in The Critic on Sunday saying, Cummings had “clearly broken” the lockdown rules, with trips to see his family in County Durham.
Baker said that changes are “immediately required” to improve the government’s response over coronavirus.
Baker wrote, “Enough is enough.
“I and others saved him once before when he was driving Vote Leave to implosion.
“Not today. Dominic Cummings must go before he does any more harm to the UK, the government, the prime minister, our institutions or the Conservative Party.
“Time is up. It is time for Dom to resign so Boris can govern within the conventions and norms which will see us through.”
Fellow Tory MP Simon Hoare also urged for Cummings to “consider his position” in a tweet he posted on social media on Sunday morning.
“With the damage Mr Cummings is doing to the Government’s reputation he must consider his position,” he tweeted.
People across England have declared that “if Dominic Cummings can break the rules we can too” after the Prime Minister defended his 260 mile trip to Durham just eight days after the strict lockdown rules were set out by the government on 23 March.
The Prime Ministers failure to condemn and sack Cummings has most certainly weakened his authority in enforcing the lockdown.
