    Default PM under pressure over bike ride seven miles from No 10

    "Boris Johnson spotted despite Covid guidance ‘you should not travel outside your local area’

    Boris Johnson is under pressure to clarify details of a Sunday bike ride seven miles from his Downing Street residence after No 10 refused to say whether he was driven there.

    Parkgoers spotted Johnson cycling in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic park in Stratford, east London, along with his security detail, at about 2pm on Sunday.

    A Downing Street source said the prime minister was exercising within the rules but would not give further details as to whether Johnson cycled from his Westminster residence or was transported there by car.

    “The PM follows Covid-secure guidelines. It does not say in the regulations that driving somewhere to take exercise is a breach of the rules. That is not a comment on the PM’s case but the rules only say remain local,” the source said. "

    The PM was visiting one of his illegitimate children.

    If you live in London (or are reasonably heathy but live elsewhere) a 7 mile cycle ride is SFA.


    Oh and did Boris Johnson meet someone else for outdoor exercise?

    Stratford isn’t local to Westminster.

    In completely unrelated news, Derbyshire Police have, on the same day questions were raised about the PM being seven miles from home, rescinded the fines imposed on the two Ashby de la Zouch women who drove five miles to go for a walk
