Time to move on, urges British PM Johnson over Cummings row

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday it was time for Britain to move on from what he described as a “very, very frustrating episode” when his closest adviser Dominic Cummings was accused of violating the coronavirus lockdown rules.

“It’s been a very, very frustrating episode and I understand why people have been so concerned, because this country is going through a horrendously difficult time,” Johnson told a parliamentary committee.

“(If) what we need to do is to focus on getting the message right ... then I think what we need to do really is to move on.”
