    You need to interpret his words to understand his intent. Sorry if that is beyond you.

    I was correct - he tested his eyesight with his kid in the back of the car.

    Where's the evidence to back up your assertion?

    Evidence:

    1. Interpretation of his own words:

    ""My wife was very worried, particularly given my eyesight seemed to have been affected by the disease. She didn't want to risk a nearly 300-mile drive with our child, given how ill I had been. We agreed that we should go for a short drive to see if I could drive safely."

    He drove to see if he could drive safely, within the context of his wife's view of risk relating to his illness, within the context of his wife being very worried about his illness, particularly around eyesight. Consider the importance of eyesight to driving.

    2. The near-universal acceptance of this interpretation of his words, in the way I have interpreted them, including by Michael Gove who is close to him -
    Cabinet Minister Michael Gove says HE has driven to test his eyesight after Cummings vision claim | Daily Mail Online - with no denial from Cummings that this is not the correct interpretation.

    When Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were taken apart by the BBC they were impartial. The Tories have become a bunch of cry babies.

    If you were to present evidence of your assertion then a debate could be had. But so far you've only dug yourself in deeper.

    I maintain that Dominic Cummings did not mention testing his eyes in his speech, the full transcript of which may be found online.

    Why do you think he went on the drive? What is your interpretation?

    Hey DomCum can be thrown to the Wolves just as Alistair (Lying) Campbell and Lord Mandleslime should have been.

    Not heard that Bojo illegally invaded another country or called anyone a Bigot? He is now shovelling more cash to non working people in a recession.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.
