Boris Johnson’s sister admits she’s ‘worried’ for PM after Dominic Cummings crisis

At the weekend, it was reported Dominic Cummings had driven 260 miles from London to County Durham with his wife and child to his parents house as he feared he wouldn’t be able to care for his child due to Covid-19. There have been calls for the Prime Minister’s aide to step down or be sacked for breaching lockdown rules however both Mr Cummings and Mr Johnson have confirmed he will remain in government. Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Boris’s sister Rachel revealed she is “worried” about him as he makes huge decisions.

When asked how her brother was coping running the country during the pandemic, Rachel remarked: “I know you are probably going to ask about Dominic Cummings.

“I think this is why it has been problematic because he’s been the architect of so many of the winning messages, the Vote Leave campaign, for the Tory party in 2019, and therefore his approach to this has now been seen as in some way hypocritical.

“You know, he’s been a real rule maker not a rule taker, which is essentially very problematic.

“Obviously, everything is bigger than Dominic Cummings, the pandemic is bigger than Dominic Cummings.

“As my brother said, nobody has his unconditional support.

“I mean, I think if I had been Cummings I would have admitted I had messed up and I’d have got on the front foot and said ‘I apologise to all of those who followed my messages.

“I took bad decisions at the time and I understand how angry it has made a whole country feel and please let’s move on because we have bigger fish to fry.’”

“Do you worry about how it’s damaged your brother because we look at the poll ratings, his approval ratings have gone down as a consequence,” asked Charlotte.

“The party’s, the government’s approval ratings have gone down as a consequence and it potentially has damaged that public health message with people saying, ‘Well, if someone at the top can flout, or be seen to flout the rules like that, then there is more leeway for the rest of us.’”

Rachel replied: “I think any family member worries about somebody under pressure taking so many big decisions.

“Equally I would be worried about Theresa May under being such huge pressure if she was running this crisis.

“I think this is a novel coronavirus, this is an unprecedented crisis, I think everyone is worried.”

Rachel’s comments came after Shadow Foreign Secretary, Lisa Nandy, was slammed by fans for defending Labour MP Stephen Pinnock for breaking lockdown while insisting Dominic Cummings should apologise.

Host Ben asked: “Dominic Cummings was saying he sat down, he’s given answers to all of the questions.

“What would you say to people who suggest there has been Labour MPs who have done similar things. Stephen Kinnock, of course, we know he travelled a long way to see his parents right at the start of this.”

The Labour MP replied: “I think that’s right. There can’t be one rule for one political party, one set of advisors, one rule for everybody else.

“To be fair to Stephen Kinnock, he went and dropped off some shopping to his parents a couple of days after the guidance was introduced.

“He got it wrong, and he said so. He thought that if he sat on the drive, socially distanced, that that was acceptable.

“The police said very clearly it wasn’t and he accepted that. It’s not that people can’t make mistakes.”

Elon Musk’s plan for brain implant to create ‘precise’ universal language in five years

The 48-year-old technology entrepreneur is the founder and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, and is gearing up for a huge day in US space history tomorrow which will see the launch of his Falcon 9 rocket with two NASA astronauts on board. Mr Musk is also the founder of The Boring Company, co-chairman of Open AI and co-founder of Neuralink, the latter being a neurotechnology company currently developing implantable brain-machine interfaces. Earlier this month, Mr Musk appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, where he told listeners that the technology will soon be able to help those with brain injuries and epilepsy.

But, the South African-born engineer could not help but speculate what the artificial intelligence technology could be capable of in the future.

He said: “Let’s say you’ve got some complex idea that you are trying to convey to somebody else, how do you do that?

“Well, your brain spends a lot of effort compressing a complex concept into words and there’s a lot of loss, information loss, that occurs when compressing a complex concept into words and then you say those words, they’re interpreted and decompressed by the person who is listening.

“They will, at best, get a very incomplete understanding of what you’re trying to convey, it’s very difficult to convey a complex concept with precision because you’ve got compression, decompression, you may not have even heard all the words correctly.

“So communication is difficult, we have a failure to communicate.”

Mr Rogan, flabbergasted by the news, then asked if it would be possible to have some kind of universal language in the future, where humans do not even speak to each other.

He said: “Could there be a potentially universal language that’s created through computers that particularly young kids would pick up very quickly?

“If you taught a child how to use some new universal language like essentially a Rosetta Stone and something is done with that interprets those thoughts where it’s clear, very clear – you know what a person is saying and you can tell them what you are saying without noises – we could bypass all that?”

Mr Musk said it was entirely possible.

He added: “We could still do that for sentimental reasons, you would, in principle, be able to communicate very quickly, and with far more precision, your ideas.

“Language would be – I’m not sure what would happen to language – but you could probably imagine, in a situation like this, it would be like the matrix.

“You want to speak another language? No problem, just download the programme.”

Mr Musk went on to speculate that with the current rate of development, the technology discussed could be feasible in five years, but is more likely to take until the end of the decade.

He continued: “What I’m talking about is like in the limit over time, with a lot of development.

“The first few iterations will really just be trying to solve brain injuries, so don’t worry it’s not going to sneak up on you, it will take a while.

“If the development continues to accelerate then maybe like five years, five to ten years, that’s a best-case scenario.”

Mr Musk is preparing for a big day tomorrow, which will see the launch of the first crewed space flight from the US into orbit in almost a decade.

Wednesday’s crewed SpaceX launch will be the first time since the final flight of the space shuttle Atlantis, on July 8, 2011, that astronauts have blasted off from US soil into orbit.

Over the last nine years, NASA has relied on the Russian space programme to deliver crews for month-long missions aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken are making a trip to the space station and will stay there from six to 16 weeks.

Cummings outrage sparks Brexit bias claims as Remainers accused of exploiting lockdown row

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

The row over Dominic Cummings’ lockdown breach is an extension of the Brexit debate, according to Suzanne Evans. The former UKIP Deputy Chair defended the PM’s top aide on Good Morning Britain after he had been accused of flouting the Government’s own lockdown restrictions by travelling over 200 miles when he had coronavirus symptoms. Ms Evans claimed that the outrage over the issue was purely down to a bias against Mr Cummings.

“If he’d had stayed at home with his wife seriously him and him seriously ill and unable to look after and something had gone wrong, how do you think the media would have reacted to that?

“How would they have reacted if he, say, got childcare in?

“Well that would have been a problem as well because they’d say he invited somebody else into his household.

“What if he’d farmed his child on loan to somebody else? He’d have been in trouble for that as well.”

Ms Evans continued: “The fact is he was caught between a rock and a hard place here.

“The media as a whole, not everybody obviously, doesn’t like Dominic Cummings because he was the architect of the Brexit campaign.

“This is almost a continuation of the Brexit-Remain debate in many respects.

“It’s a visceral hatred of Dominic Cummings that many people have.”

The former UKIP politician added: “It doesn’t matter what he does.

“Dominic Cummings could walk on water tomorrow and the headline in the press would be ‘Dominic Cummings can’t swim’.”

GMB host Ben Shephard pointed out that many families across the country had been in a similar position of being ill with children but not resorted to the same actions as Mr Cummings.

Mr Cummings refused to apologise for his actions and said he believed he had acted “reasonably” and within the law.

The special adviser had driven 260 miles from London to Durham with his family after his wife developed symptoms in March, despite official guidelines stating that those in a similar position should remain home and isolate.

Mr Cummings claimed he made the trip in his son’s interest so that his family could look after the four-year-old if necessary.

Former Labour adviser Ayesha Hazarika told GMB that his explanation “didn’t make any sense”.

She warned viewers that the Government have “treated us like idiots”.

Tipping Point: Ben Shephard left speechless by player’s revelation on ITV quiz show

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Ben, 45, was on hand to oversee proceedings on this afternoon’s instalment of Tipping Point, welcoming four players to the ITV quiz show. Each one was hoping to walk away with the jackpot prize of £10,000 but they would have to fend off their other competitors first. It was in the final round, one lucky contestant made their play for the huge windfall, but left the host speechless when they made a revelation which might have cost them the game.

After Hilary and Laura failed to progress past the first stages of the show, it was Dan and Chris who went head-to-head to try and win the jackpot.

Although the former had been the one to beat throughout the course of the game, the latter ended up making it into the final round with just an extra £50 ahead.

As well as trying to secure the £10,000, the contestant was also aiming to increase the prize fund he had already built.

However, it was one question about one of the most iconic television shows of modern times which left him stumped and Ben lost for words.

  • Tipping Point fans enraged after Ben Shephard’s question ‘error’

With just two categories left, Chris asked if he could play for three counters on TV shows, meaning the question was going to be tough.

Ben then asked: “Which of the three daughters of the Earl of Grantham on Downton Abbey was played by Jessica Brown Findlay?”

The three possible answers the contestant could choose from were Lady Sybil, Lady Mary or Lady Edith.

Instead of giving an answer, however, the player told the host: “I’ve never watched an episode of Downton Abbey.”

It’s going to be a pure guess

Tipping Point player

This revelation left Ben utterly speechless as he was seen putting his hand to his mouth in shock.

“It’s going to be a pure guess,” Chris added as the host tried to get over what he’d just been told.

The player locked down the answer of Lady Sybil and when asked if he was sure, he replied: “We’ll be here all night, Ben.”

Luckily, the guess was correct as the studio lit up green and the contestant had another three counters to play with.

Unfortunately, the last category of history didn’t provide any hope as the counters didn’t push the star coin over the edge of the machine.

Ben then asked the player if he wanted to play three more counters and risk losing everything, or walk away with the money he’d already won.

Chris decided to go with the latter option, believing the extra coins wouldn’t have worked in his favour.

This meant he walked away with a cash total of £3,400 and he also won a mystery prize counter as an added bonus.

The contestant was right to stick with his choice as, given the chance to play them anyway, the jackpot would never have been won.

Taking to Twitter in light of the episode, those watching at home praised the player for his efforts in today’s game.

One viewer wrote on the social media platform: “Well done Chris #TippingPoint.

Another added on the micro-blogging site: “Tough show that today. Well played tho #TippingPoint.” [sic].

High blood pressure: Two helpings of this food a day could lower risk of the condition

High blood pressure, diabetes and obesity all fall under the medical term metallic syndrome (MetS) and are associated with greater risk of heart disease. But research carried out by scientists at McMaster University in Canada has suggested how these could be avoided – by eating full fat milk and cheese.

READ MORE

  • High blood pressure symptoms: How to tell you have the ‘silent killer’

Previous advice from experts has urged adults to avoid full fat dairy products in order to stay healthy.

But the new study now suggests theses foods could be good for you.

The study involved 140,000 people from 21 countries and was conducted over nine years.

Questionnaires were used to assess participants’ diets over the duration of a year.

A serving of milk or cup of yoghurt was considered 244g, a slice of cheese 15g and butter 5g.

The researchers wrote in a BMJ journal: “Higher intake of whole fat (but not low fat) dairy was associated with a lower prevalence of MetS.”

They also hope their findings will help inform worldwide health initiatives to combat serious health problems.

Study author Balaji Bhavadharini said: “We report that intake of dairy products, especially whole fat products, is associated with lower prevalence of metabolic syndrome and its individual components at baseline, and a lower risk of hypertension and diabetes during follow-up.

“If our findings are confirmed in sufficiently large and long term trials, then increasing dairy consumption may represent a feasible and low cost approach to reducing metabolic syndrome, hypertension, diabetes, and ultimately cardiovascular disease events worldwide.”

The main causes of high blood pressure

It’s not always clear what causes high blood pressure, according to the NHS, but certain things can increase your risk.

You’re at an increased risk of high blood pressure if you:

  • Are over the age of 65
  • Are overweight
  • Are of African or Caribbean descent
  • Have a relative with high blood pressure
  • Eat too much salt and do not eat enough fruit and vegetables
  • Do not do enough exercise
  • Drink too much alcohol or coffee (or other caffeine-based drinks)
  • Smoke
  • Do not get much sleep or have disturbed sleep

  • High blood pressure: Five potassium rich foods to lower your reading

The health body advises: “Making healthy lifestyle changes can help reduce your chances of getting high blood pressure and help lower your blood pressure if it’s already high.”

How to prevent and lower high blood pressure

Lifestyle changes that can help prevent and lower high blood pressure include:

  • Reduce the amount of salt you eat and have a generally healthy diet
  • Cut back on alcohol
  • Lose weight if you’re overweight
  • Exercise regularly
  • Cut down on caffeine
  • Stop smoking

Some people with the condition may need to take one or more medicines to stop their blood pressure getting too high.

How to find out if you have high blood pressure

Because the condition doesn’t usually present any symptoms, the best way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to regularly check your blood pressure.

Blood pressure is recorded with two numbers – the systolic pressure (higher number), which is the force at which the heart pumps blood around the body, and the diastolic pressure (lower number), which is the resistance to the blood flow in the blood vessels.

High blood pressure is considered to be 140/90mmHg or higher, or 150/90mmHg or higher if you’re over the age of 80.

Ideal blood pressure is usually considered to be between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg.

You can check your blood pressure at home with a home blood pressure monitor if you’re unable to go to your GP surgery or local pharmacy.

Mysterious UFO sighting stuns Australian politicians as experts confirm artificial origin

A mysterious UFO that lit up the skies over south-east Australia left experts stunned and prompted panic among members of the public. Social media was flooded with footage from residents in Victoria, Australia, showing the object streaking across the sky. Immediately speculation ranged from disintegrating satellite, a shooting meteor, or “alien invasion”. 

Space scientists ruled out meteors, which tyically last three seconds at most, as well as comets, which move so slowly across the sky they are usually not noticeable.

Tasmanian Senator Peter Whish-Wilson tweeted: “I saw this driving home tonight. Pulled over to film it but it went behind hills. Was very slow moving and looked like a massive meteor shower.

“Totally weird. I’m not watching Independence Day or War of the Worlds tonight!”

Others called up state officials fearing it was a potential plane crash.

JUST IN: Alien caught on security camera? 

Tom Toose, a 31-year-old farmer watched the “massive burning trail of embers” in the sky with his girlfriend for about 30 seconds before it disappeared.

He said: “I’ve never seen anything like that before in my life.

“It looked like a plane was getting shot down, it was massive. It was just the most surreal thing.”

One witness joked: “Feels right that the next step for 2020 is alien invasion…” 

According to local media, both Ambulance Victoria and the Country Fire Authority were inundated with calls from anxious residents worried about the UFO

However, experts believe that the sighting was the remnants of a rocket used to launch a Russian satellite into orbit.

The so-called “space junk” takes a while to disintegrate.

Perry Vlahos, vice president of the Astronomical Society of Victoria, explained: “The fact it was slow-moving and at a shallow angle, and an amount of disintegration was occurring, gave it away it was not an alien spacecraft, a meteor, or comet.

“It’s a late-stage Russian rocket that put up a satellite about 5:30 our time this afternoon.

“So that spent rocket stage has re-entered the atmosphere.”

The rocket was reportedly launched at 10:31 local time from Plesetsk, about 1,000 kilometers north of Moscow.

Bradley Walsh forced to apologise to The Chase contestant over major mistake

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

The Chase continued tonight and Bradley Walsh introduced Ian, Cilla, Stephen and Hannah to the studio to go up against Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha. However, after Bradley continued to get a contestant’s name wrong, Cilla called out the host and he was forced to apologise. 

From the off tonight, Bradley proved he was in a playful mood, narrating the contestants’ answers as they went.

Ian, Cilla, Stephen, and Hannah were introduced to the chaser and first up was Ian.

Ian might not have proved himself in the cash builder, winning only £3,000, but he was able to challenge Paul and get through to the final. 

But before deciding what he wanted to play for, Bradley threw it over to his competitors.

Stephen immediately told Ian to go for the high offer and the contestant was shocked by how confident his fellow player was.

Bradley then said: “What about you Killer?” and contestant Cilla covered her face before telling her fellow player to go for the money he had already racked up and Ian was torn. 

Ian was the first contestant into the final, and Hannah was up next talking a big game but she was quickly caught out by the chaser and sent home. 

Before the break Bradley once again introduced Cilla as “Killer,” and when they came back, the host had to apologise for getting her name wrong.

Cilla stepped up to the podium, and Bradley said: “Next to face the chaser is killer,” but was immediately interrupted by the contestant.

She said: “Eh,” clicking her fingers and scowling at the host: “Cilla.”

Bradley quickly added: “Oh, I’m sorry Cilla. All the way from Great Yarmouth and you’re a retired nurse aren’t you?”

Cilla explained she had been a nurse for just over 28 years and it was time for her to face Paul.

One viewer said: “Come on killa!! All rooting for you! #TheChase.”

“Cilla’s a bit of a minx there!!#TheChase,” added another. 

“Killer Cilla going for the 40K!” echoed a third “You go girrrrrl #TheChase,” while someone else shared: “Cilla is going for the £40,000. C’MON CILLA #TheChase.”

After a tough round, Cilla just wasn’t quite able to get through to the final despite taking the huge £40,000 jackpot to play for. 

Paul said: “What a game, what a game this is. That was an outstanding performance from what must be the best mum in the world.”

  • The Chase: Mark Labbett punches wall and walks off set

Cilla thanked Bradley and told him she would say hello to her pals in Great Yarmouth from him. 

This left just Ian and Stephen in the final with £7,000 between the two of them if they won. 

The two weren’t the quickest to answer but took 14 good answers into the final in the hopes of winning against Paul. 

Paul had a couple of questions that really caught him off guard, but once he got into the swing of things he proved that Ian and Stephen were going home with nothing. 

The two contestants fought hard, but after a full day of quizzing the pressure got to them and they lost their £7,000 jackpot with Bradley congratulating them for getting to the final.

The Chase airs on ITV weekdays at 5pm.

Lorraine Kelly was joined by Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon via video link for an interview on Good Morning Britain today.

Wardrobe organisation: How to sort out your wardrobe

There are endless ways to organise your wardrobe. With the UK currently under lockdown conditions due to the pandemic, you can no longer use the ‘I’m too busy’ excuse. Now is the perfect time to rearrange your wardrobe. Not sure where to start? Express.co.uk chats to Instagram superstar and professional Home Organiser Nicola Lewis, also known as @thisgirlcanorganise, to find out her top tips.

There’s no time like the present, says Nicola.

Nicola’s book ‘Mind Over Clutter’ talks you through the process of cleaning your way to a calm and happy home.

It’s the ultimate guide to eco-cleaning and arranging your home in a practical, sustainable and meaningful way.

The book is packed with step-by-step and room-by-room plans, with the end-goal being a decluttered and organised home.

Keep reading for a sneak peek of the book and Nicola’s top tips for a pristine wardrobe.

Get into your happy place

First things first, you’ve got to get in the right mindset to tidy up your wardrobe.

Nicola said: “When organising your wardrobe, I always recommend getting into your happy place.

“Whack on the music or a podcast, or burn your favourite candle.

“Do whatever makes you smile.”

Once you’ve done this, you’re ready to get started.

Moths

There are more than 2,500 types of moth in the UK, and some of these pesky creatures will damage your clothes.

You might find several large holes beyond repair in your favourite items, or large-scale infestation in vintage clothing.

This is because moths love clothes made from natural fibres, and they don’t care how important or expensive the item is.

Nicola said: “To prevent pesky moths from attacking your clothes, fill linen drawstring bags or pop socks with a handful of dried lavender.

“Hang it inside your wardrobe to repel the moths.”

Hangers

There are loads of hangers on the market, so consider your choices wisely.

Nicola explained: “Slim velvet hangers are great for shirts, dresses and lightweight blazers.

“Wooden hangers are perfect for men’s suits and heavy weighted coats.

“For skirts and trousers, you’re better off with clip hangers.

“You can hang skirts and trousers separately from your other clothes and organise them in category order.”

Space

Not everyone has a huge walk-in wardrobe, so it is important to make the most of what you’ve got.

Nicola advised: “If you don’t have space in your wardrobe to hang all of your clothes, you can store your seasonal items separately.

“In spring and summer pop your winter wardrobe away in moth protective bags, and vice versa.

“Then, store the bags under your bed or in the loft.”

Declutter

Start off by removing sections of your wardrobe and either place them on your bed or on a free-standing clothes rail, said Nicola.

Nicola said: “Keep the clothes that make you smile.

“If you haven’t worn something in two years, then it’s a sure sign you don’t really like this item, or maybe it doesn’t fit.

“Decide whether you are going to make the effort to get back into this item or if it can benefit someone else.”

Organise

There’s no hard or fast rule to organising, said Nicola.

It’s all personal preference, as what works for you wouldn’t necessarily work for someone else.

Nicola said: “Consider your space and how you’d like to see your clothes.”

Possible options include ordering the garments by colour, category, or season.

She added: “Once it’s done, you will be totally in control again.

“You will be calmer, focused and feel on top of the world.”

Organ donation update: Every adult now an organ donor unless they opt out

The opt out organ donation law takes effect today with the prospect of 700 additional transplants being made each year by 2023.

The new law, which has been named Max and Keira’s Law, was inspired by two children – Max Johnson and Keira Ball.

Keira Ball passed away three days after being in a car accident near her home in Devon in July 2017 which left her with serious head injuries.

Motivated by her desire to help others, her family took the decision to allow her to become an organ donor.
