Dominic Cummings steps up plan to replace Tories with new party – POLITICO

The political strategist retained his job, despite immense pressure, after giving a press conference in the Downing Street garden to defend his actions – an unprecedented step for an unelected adviser.

But he was ultimately fired five months later and quickly began a public vendetta against Johnson, which included a series of damning revelations about how the pandemic had been handled.

He was once described by Foreign Secretary David Cameron as “a career psychopath” and was known to have registered in Whitehall departments as “Osama bin Laden” while serving as an adviser to the Ministry of Education.

However, he has also inspired deep loyalty from his close circle of allies, who view him as a brilliant political strategist.

A senior pro-Brexit Conservative MP, granted anonymity to speak freely, predicted that Cummings’ controversial reputation meant a party would never get off the ground.

“A political party must actually be collegial,” they said. “Who would want to run for office for their party? Almost everyone who worked with Dominic Cummings has said horrible things about him.

Cummings had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication.
