It’s the end of May 2020, Spring has sprung, we are through the initial COVID peak and the lockdown is being eased. The earlier panic buying and public anxiety about Coronavirus is being superseded by a public vexation about the behaviour of ‘the social and political elite’ who lay claim to lead the country. A media frenzy was whipped up around the antics of Dominic Cummings. Against all advice and instructions from his employers, the government, he chose to drive his family to Durham (from London) to stay in a spare house on his parents property. He was seen by the locals driving his family out for an excursion to Barnard Castle, before returning back to London a few days later. Meanwhile, the rest of the UK population was in lock down, not even being allowed to visit dying relatives. Johnson, instead of sacking Cummings, was seen to publicly support him. Cummings got away with it and is still in office now. Clearly the rules and instructions for the proletariat to abide by do not apply to the social and political elite. A sense of injustice and outrage has surfaced. Sir Keir Starmer who took control of the Labour party last month, while making his objections clear about these behaviours, is not going for direct confrontation – yet. Keir Starmer has come across as the more considered and artful, politician compared to Boris Johnson, during his first few weeks in office.
