West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper commented:
“Mr Cummings needs to do the honourable thing and resign. If he doesn’t, the Prime Minister needs to do the right thing and sack him.
“For each other’s sake, to save lives and protect the NHS, we have been required to obey stringent lockdown rules.
“The British people who up to now have done their best in difficult circumstances are in danger of throwing in the towel because they see the establishment behaving in this callous, arrogant way as if the rules don’t apply to them. Lives will be lost if people lose confidence in the lockdown rules.”
