BBC News: Dominic Cummings: I discussed ousting PM after 2019 election landslide


Cummings arrogance, and desire for revenge is on show here. I wonder how much is really true?

July 21, 2021

Dominic Cummings has revealed he discussed ousting Boris Johnson within days of the Conservatives winning the December 2019 election by a landslide. The PM’s former chief adviser told the BBC it seemed that, by mid-January 2020, Mr Johnson did not “have a plan”. Mr Cummings also alleged the PM’s wife Carrie Johnson had tried to influence government appointments. But, despite quitting Downing Street last autumn following a power struggle, he denied being motivated by revenge. Asked about Mr Cummings’s comments, a government spokesperson said ministers were fully focused on recovery from the pandemic and restoring the economy.
