I wonder where this rumour might have originated. Perhaps someone with form for this sort of thing?
- it appears to have originated as a rumour on twitter by ONE person around 4pm yesterday afternoon, who then claimed to have heard it on LBC that morning, when later asked to back up the claim, they admitted they were mistaken and took the original post down - and then, later, deleted their account (there was no mention on LBC)
When Johnson then hinted at family medical matters, twitter put 2+2 together and by 6pm yesterday people were repeating it as fact. Multiple bots posted the exact same message about it, it spread like crazy, to the point were journalists, including LBC journos, were retweeting it.
- If the child has any medical issue, autism or otherwise - its private medical information regarding a child, and should not be thrown around, even in some weird defence attempt.
If Cummings or his wife, wish to make such a thing public thats upto them, but they havent and people should think before repeating rumours about children.
