‘Disgraceful shambles’ Lorraine Kelly slams Dominic Cummings for ‘smirking’ in interview

The PM’s former chief adviser was repeatedly challenged throughout his interview to back up his version of events with evidence, but he insisted many of his claims would be corroborated if there was a public inquiry into its handling of the Covid pandemic.

He went on to drop a huge bombshell that some of Boris’ closest aides decided he was unfit to be prime minister within weeks of his 2019 election victory and began plotting to oust him.

He also told the BBC it seemed that by mid-January 2020 the PM did not “have a plan”, and alleged his wife Carrie Johnson had tried to influence government appointments.

Cummings spoke about Brexit, for which he ran the Vote Leave campaign, but admitted that while he thinks it was a good idea and the right thing for the UK, anyone who expressed certainty about this “has a screw loose”.
