Do As I Say - Not As I Do

The SNP's Margaret Ferrier called on the Prime Minister's adviser Dominic Cummings to resign for breaking the rules on traveling during the Coronavirus lockdown.

Yet the Rutherglen MP travelled back and forward to London while experiencing Covid-19 symptoms and awaiting the results of a test which turned out to be positive.  

I'm sure this will merit a mention at the First Minister's daily press briefings, but given the seriousness of the situation I suspect it deserves a full statement in the House of Commons and the Scottish Parliament.
