Dominic Cummings’ days as senior advisor to Boris Johnson are numbered, according to Alan Johnson former member of Tony Blair’s Cabinet.
Alan Johnson said “the public perceived the Vote Leave mastermind as the “puppet master” and that meant he would have to leave Downing Street as there can only be one leader in No 10 and that’s the Prime Minister”
The former MP also said “I think his days are numbered precisely because the public perceives him as the puppet master. That’s bad for Government and that’s bad for Boris Johnson”
Then Johnson went on to say “No one else who has come in as a special advisor who has been played by Benedict Cumberbatch on the telly, so that kind of goes to your head but no one else has come in as a special adviser to the Prime Minister who has been such an abject failure in his previous department”
Before finishing off with “The reason Michael Gove was moved from Education by David Cameron was that he was at war with everyone in the education world and why was he at war with everyone in the education world? It had a little bit to do with his special advisor Dominic Cummings”
“He’s on his way out.” he ended.
