#cumgate @campbellclaret @Tucker5law @drewhendrySNP @BorisJohnson My rant...

My mother, a 77 year old widow came to visit us in mid March, for what is one of her 2 visits she makes to us, now we have moved 450 miles away from my home area to a part of the Scottish Highlands.
My mum, as loyal a tory voter as Boris could have a wet dream about, a reader of the Daily Mail (I consider it a firelighter) has now been with us for over 10 weeks, but she is now angry, confused and disheartened by the #DominicCummnings affair.

Paragraph 14 (SAs Code) is unambiguous: 'Special advisers must not take public part in political controversy, through any form of statement whether in speeches or letters to the press, or in books, social media, articles or leaflets'. They must avoid personal attacks. 2/14
