This isn't the Cummings effect, this more like there are far too many Cummings types that think they know better.

A major incident has been declared in Bournemouth after thousands of people descended on the area's beaches as temperatures soared.

Council leaders say the numbers of people flooding the seaside in the last two days are "like those seen on a bank holiday".

Bournemouth Council said people had "defied advice to stay away" and left services struggling to cope.

Visitors swarmed to Britain's beaches as the country sweltered in its two hottest days of the year so far, peaking at 32.6C (90.68F) yesterday and 33.3°C (91.94F) today, both recorded at Heathrow Airport.

The influx of beachgoers has caused "widespread" problems with illegal parking, "excessive" littering, gridlock on roads and anti-social behaviour, Bournemouth Council said.

There were a number of reported incidents of fights and excessive alcohol use, while cleaning crews received "abuse and intimidation" as they attempted to empty overflowing bins on the seafront.

The council said it has issued 558 parking fines - its highest number on record - and responded to numerous reports of parked cars causing an obstruction.

Bournemouth Council leader Vikki Slade said: "We are absolutely appalled at the scenes witnessed on our beaches, particularly at Bournemouth and Sandbanks, in the last 24-48 hours.

"The irresponsible behaviour and actions of so many people is just shocking and our services are stretched to the absolute hilt trying to keep everyone safe. We have had no choice now but to declare a major incident and initiate an emergency response."

A multi-agency emergency response is now co-ordinating resources across the area to tackle the issues.

Additional police patrols have been brought in, security has been put in place to protect refuse workers and additional parking enforcement has been implemented.

This is lockdown is over you can see your friends family go to the shops the pub and protest with thousands of others.

Lockdown is over. People went to the beach on the sunniest day. There's just no surprise to it.

Probably not.

However, there is a strong possibility that they felt empowered by people like Cummings who flout guidelines and laws with impunity.

"Herd immunity" by the back door.

I see that our Mighty Ministerial Jet has taken to the skies with what is essentially BA livery. Plane is now unusable by the RAF thanks to the white body as opposed to the previous low viz job.

Never mind. It's quite clear that you are unable to present a coherent argument, hence you resort to insults.

There was a UK story behind the compelled comment, one that you’d missed. Once again you stomp in proving how little you understand anything.

Yes.

That would be sensible.

However, if the Dominic Cummingses are not taking it seriously, then it probably shouldn't be a surprise that other people are similarly inclined to feel that it's nowhere near as big a threat as it's made out to be.

Cummings did take it seriously. A lot more seriously than most of the general public. That's why people don't give a shit, and don't care about Charles going to Scotland, or Hancock coming back a day early from quarantine.
The people who give a shit are the remoaners.

I shouldn't bother with this bitter remoaning Jockstrap wanker. Such is the straw-clutchers desperation it's still drivelling about Cummings, so last month or was it the month before? Remoaning tossers are being eaten alive by a parasite from the inside out and are too bitter to see it despite the fact that it's been gnawing at them for over four years now. The mind boggles so it does...

Because, it's probably right in the sense that Remainers are a lot more likely to be cognisant of the consequences of their actions rather than simply proceeding on unfounded nationalism and stereotypical jingoism.

I get the general notion that many grit their teeth to breaking point over what they see as differential treatment of ordinary folk vis-a-vis the connected. But even so...

It’s got me wondering whether the UK - or at least, England - having only two levels of government may be a factor. If one assumes most of the people most of the time have only a limited quantity of righteous wrath on tap, might the more compressed model result in an expanded rage budget in respect of national issues?

Does that actually make sense to you?

We are talking about whether there is an incentive to follow rules if those that make them are seen to be ignoring them. You, quite rightly, indicated that the rules were there for people's own protection and now you are saying "it's only 'cos they're remoaners".

It really does seem that the only way you are capable of discussing anything is through the blunt use of insults.

You can blame Bournemouth on Cummings but he is but one individual.

Bournemouth is a symptom of the Tory cult of the individual (which I support in many respects). There is no such thing as Society etc.

Selfishness and stupidity make unappealing bedfellows. The somewhat sickening irony is the Tory party wrapping itself in the WW2 flag of the Blitz spirit and sacrifice for others.

PS I was at the beach yesterday, reaching it at 7am and the hell out of it by 10am. It was brilliant.

I don't think people being individually responsible for their own actions can be called a cult. Having the state responsible for controlling your life and your every move is cultism.

What I am saying is that when the people who make the rules don't follow them, then it disincentivises anyone else to.

Message, quite rightly, indicated that sensible people would follow them for their own protection, and I would agree,
He didn’t make the rules.

He followed the law .....
Jesus, Bimbo, you never tire of trotting out the same old bullshit, do you?
Both are statements of fact.
If you're naive enough to buy the 'testing my eyes' yarn.

The reality is he, on the occasion of his wife's birthday, took wife and son on an unecessary sight seeing day trip to a river, castle and forest and lied about it.

Bournemouth is a symptom of the Tory cult of the individual (which I support in many respects). There is no such thing as Society etc.

Selfishness and stupidity make unappealing bedfellows. The somewhat sickening irony is the Tory party wrapping itself in the WW2 flag of the Blitz spirit and sacrifice for others.

PS I was at the beach yesterday, reaching it at 7am and the hell out of it by 10am. It was brilliant.

It isn't a fact that what he did was within the law. It is a fact that the police decided it wasn't worth their trouble to take the matter further.
