Dominic Cummings: I discussed ousting PM after 2019 election landslide

BBC, 21 Jul 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.
