@davidallengreen @bbclaurak Indeed, and the changing details from the “source” in the tweets that followed smack of a quickly changing story. Eg this account conceded he travelled “when he and his wife had coronavirus”. Not “because he feared he might get it”.
@davidallengreen @bbclaurak Then, as critics point out the breach of the rules that would follow relying on elderly parents for care, suddenly the source offers “further details”, clarifying the prospective caregiver as the sister. By time of statement, is sister and nieces.
