so, yeah, in his position he's been a bit naughty, but trying to make a big deal of this isn't going to make the british public trust the opposition any more, it'll just raise the political moral maze a bit higher.
There are two aspects:
1) the basic politics - Cummings is Johnson's support, so kick him aside and watch Johnson fall. Why should the opposition do anything other?
2) public trust in the government - as noted in other posts, relatives unable to be with and comfort dying relatives and then unable to attend the funerals, however government advisers can drive around the country whilst telling the rest of us to stay at home. That's more than just a bit naughty
