    * Absolutely no evidence whatsoever that the director in question, Alice Cummings, is a relation. Because Cummings is such a rare surname? A few people have suggested his sister might be called Francesca or Sarah and I've seen some unverified evidence that Alice Cummings is her married name anyway, but no evidence that she is any kind of relation whatsoever. It fails the Google test for me - it should be pretty easy to verify a fact by googling and finding some kind of primary or reliable secondary source, but googling for this just gives loads of unrelated results or links to people reposting the same conspiracy.

    * Idox have won some government contracts including an online booking system for COVID-19 testing (and postal voting systems in the past) but they didn't develop the app, that was VMWare Pivotal. This is easy to verify.
    It's not even a govt. contract, it's one NHS Trust which they were already working with using the service for STI testing appointments

    Where is Idox mentioned?

    Cheers...here's another good one for tinfoil hat wearers:

    Ben Warner (Ben Warner - Wikipedia) was the guy who modeled the Vote Leave and 2019 election for Cummings. Now as soon as Cummings got his foot in No.10, Warner's brother Marc's company: Faculty (Faculty (company) - Wikipedia) was awarded a GBP250 million NHS contract. Ben Warner now sits on the SAGE committee and his brother Marc has been awarded the contract for NHS tracking (giving him access to the entire health data.)

    I think the Daily Mail has lost connection with it's readers, I am so totally sick of their Corona coverage that i have set a blocker so i never accidentally see that news paper again.

    RE: Cummings, why does anyone actually care? In a few months when it is apparent the economy is a burnt out shell due to the lockdown's, most people will strangely overnight switch positions and start complaining that the government had any lockdown's in the first place.

    The guy in Barnard Castle said he knew what day Cummings was there because he checked his number plate on google! All I can say is Die Blockwart is alive and well in Barnard Castle, that is the sort "following orders" that caused people tell on their Jewish Neighbors in WW2 - see Milgram experiment Milgram experiment - Wikipedia

    Cummings done a great distraction job - from the fact that thus country opening too soon: who cares about second wave when it’s whether Cummings gets fired or not.

    But if you want a 'fact', don't bother with Twatter, you're unlikely to find one.

    I agree this is a pointless distraction from more important issues. Would have been better if he'd just apologised, but the distraction job was created by the lefty newspapers that dredged this up in the first place and made such an issue of it.

    yes, but he's still highlighted the double values in this government's approach to everything, which won't sit well with the general public at all.
