I went to Barnard Castle

1st July 2020

About this memory

A large poster in the style of a optician's eye examination sign.
It reads, "I went to Barnard Castle and all I got was this lousy eye chart".

It refers to the admission by Prime Minister Boris Johnson's chief advisor, Dominic Cummings, that he drove to Barnard Castle from Durham City (approximately 25 miles) to 'test his eyesight' during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown when everyone was told not to travel unless essential.
