It was within 5km of where he's staying, we're allowed meet up in groups in 4 and it was himself, his partner, and two friends. So no he wasn't breaking the rules.

He didn't though. That story was false. Him and his partner met friends from another household while socially distant outside, which isn't against the Irish rules

It's funny you would title the thread "breaking and flouting lockdown" considering you seemed pretty sure there weren't any rules yesterday? If Cummings didn't break any, then this chap certainly didn't.

Not really the point being made, if Cummings didn't break lockdown guidance then this guy certainly didn't break Ireland's guidance. But if that's the excuse you're telling yourself for your ridiculously hypocritical attitude.

Well as he has done no wrong I'm not sure why anyone would make a thread on it.

Hypocritical Irish PM tells his people not to picnic during lockdown, then sunbathes bare-chested while picnicking
https://www.rt.com/op-ed/489809-iris...-lockdown/amp/
because it was only a week ago that the assistant secretary of the Department of the Taoiseach told a media briefing: “If you’re visiting a public amenity, try not to stay too long at the site or have picnics. Please do your exercise and then go home.”

By ignoring his own government’s guidelines, the PM’s cavalier approach to the lockdown is very much a condescending case of do as I say, not as I do. If nothing else, he was being a pompous, elitist fool and setting a bad example that will only encourage others to ignore the rules.

contradict the advice that was given by the assistant secretary of the Department of the Taoiseach, Liz Caravan, who said last week that: “If you’re visiting a public amenity try not to stay too long at the site or have picnics. Please do your exercise and then go home.”

One rule for the elite...

Brendan O’Neill, a columnist for Spiked Online observed while discussing the differential noted that he was not particularly bothered by either supposed scandal, but asserted that the double standard in media coverage of the two incidents was a result of the different political positions the two men hold.

While Varadkar has enjoyed prominence and favourable over to his position as a media darling as the anti-Brexit, first openly homosexual PM of the Republic of Ireland, Mr Cummings has long been a target for the media establishment for his role in the Vote Leave campaign in 2016, which helped secure the Brexit referendum.
