Cummings accuses Johnson of being ‘mad and unethical’
Dominic Cummings: ‘sad to see the PM fall’
Former Downing Street adviser Dominic Cummings has launched an attack on Boris Johnson, his former employer, questioning his “competence and integrity”.
Mr Cummings, who was forced out of his job amid internal disputes over Brexit and lockdown, denied he was the source of leaked text messages between the Prime Minister and the businessman Sir James Dyson.
Instead, he turned on Mr Johnson, writing in a blog that the prime minister was behaving in a way he considered “mad and totally unethical”.
He claimed Mr Johnson once planned to have party donors “secretly pay” for renovation of his official Downing street flat which was “possibly illegal”.
He warned that he would happily give evidence under oath to an inquiry.
“It is sad to see the PM and his office fall so far below the standards of competence and integrity the country deserves,” he wrote.
Sir James had requested the Prime Minister’s help in resolving tax issues that would enable him to make ventilators in the UK for Covid patients. Mr Johnson promised to fix the problem.
Mr Johnson has flatly denied any wrong-doing over the text messages.
