Peston is fucking shocking.

 

 

Long-winded waffle.

 

 

To be fair, he was spot on that it's not a political issue.

A shame his point was missed in the midst of the rest of his pish.

That's exactly it. If he was confident in their answers he wouldn't gag them. 


If it was me I'd have resigned live on air.

I would love to hear what Vallance and Whitty have to say on the impact on the message of Cummings behaviour. I gather by not letting them answer, they are unhappy about it.
Do you, though? Really?

They're up there next to the prime minister, and would've given a dead easy 'I'm not going to comment on this political issue, but our advice is.....' answer.

If anyone with scientific ties is going to break ranks and criticise - then they would do it. They're certainly not going to be caught out with a piss easy question.

Oh look, literally that just happened.

In response to a question they’ve just clarified that if you are with someone for longer than 15 mins, even at 2m distance, then you are considered close contact and would be contacted.

Witty just said the opposite.

Clear as mud

At what point do the people of this country decide they’ve had enough of this Government and Prime Minister?
 

It says it all when a journalist asks the assembled scientists just to nod or shake their head to a question. 
 

We live in dangerous times.

His habit of elongating random words is baffling is it to make him sound more considered and clever?

I don't know much about Sam Coates, but he is my new favourite journalist

Sam Coates is pretty decent. One of the few worth following on Twitter for their analysis.

They are trying to be professional, their main job is in those SAGE meetings and in developing the response, not in standing here talking about it.  

If they go all out on TV then 1) the message doesn’t get across and 2) they get sacked and the potential is that whoever comes in doesn’t have their expertise or worse, is a Tory yes man.

They are having to go out and work with the Gov, whether they like them or agree with them or not.

Wonder if they decided on 6 for political reasons instead of an 8 limit after Sturgeon said 8 but the fewer the better? Perhaps we'll never know.

He shook not have had a first question - just allows him to waffle and avoid.

Fucking ask him a question without any excuse to deflect.

Great question there, about the honourable thing to do, but no doubt will be regarded as a political question
