Much has been said about the writing of Mary Wakefield, but there is one particular article which could hold the key to the truth in this matter. On 10 August 2019, she wrote an article for The Spectator entitled: ’Like so many parents, I’m a panic junkie'. An article which revealed her Achilles heel i.e. her ability and addiction to dramatize and magnify something completely out of all proportion, especially when it related to the health of her child.
“My fear is that we’re somehow addicted to the panic”
Therefore, a more likely series of events (on that memorable day when Cummings rushed from Downing Street and headed up to Durham) is that Cummings, who had full prior knowledge and experience of his spouse’s ability to go completely off the Richter Scale, allowed her to whip him up into such a frenzy that he became completely devoid of any ability to think logically and therefore hauled all three of them up the 260 mile road to his parents.
"Me, I'm a sucker for a rare disease"
Cummings at the time had the political authority, power and influence to do so many things in relation to this pandemic, including the ability to procure millions of pounds worth of resources at little or no notice for whatever was needed.
Yet when it came to his own personal predicament, he simply could not see any further than the end of his nose, or his wife's nose in this case, and asks us to believe that he had absolutely no other option than to drive to Durham.
Cummings does admit to making mistakes in relation to this pandemic and we have seen what appears to be a series of blunders from the Government in relation to testing, PPE, etc, but his inability to think logically under pressure should now be of grave concern to the general public as we all go forward in our collective bid to fight this virus.
