The devil works hard but Dreams creators work harder, as within only a day of Dominic Cummings’ press conference in the rose garden of No. 10, someone has already made a minigame to mock one of his most infamous statements.
Over the past few days, the prime minister’s chief adviser Dominic Cummings has defended a return trip he made from London to Durham during the height of lockdown restrictions in the UK, after both he and his wife had developed symptoms of Covid-19. During his time in Durham, Cummings claimed he had driven for 30 minutes to Barnard Castle to “see if [he] could drive safely” back to London after his “eyesight seemed to have been affected by the disease” (via BBC).
Naturally, large swathes of the internet decided to have some fun with this claim, and apart from writing fake tripadvisor reviews for Barnard Castle it seems at least one person has converted the statement into a minigame.
