Dear editor,

“Municipal Man” chooses to give his slating of Dominic Cummings and the Prime Minister.

You claim to be an independent unbiased news provider so I’m giving an alternative opinion.

Can anyone who watched and listened to Mr Cummings and who bothered to put themselves in his shoes say they would have behaved differently?

What’s more he did not break the rule. In fact he read it out for all to hear.

Northumberland police state he may have committed a minor infringement which is not worth pursuing.

Instead of hounding the man and the government I suggest that Municipal Man has the guts to sign his piece so his own behaviour can be scrutinised and let the government concentrate on saving you and me from Corona Virus.
