BORIS JOHNSON may have ground to sue former advisor Dominic Cummings over leaked personal communications, a media lawyer has told TalkRadio. Boris Johnson could decide to sue Dominic Cummings after the disgruntled former Downing Street advisor released screengrabs of messages shared between the two. Media lawyer Paul Gilbert has insisted the Prime Minister would be within his rights to take the former Vote Leave strategy guru to court if Mr Cummings had breached his contract of employment.
Boris Johnson praised Matt Hancock for leading "huge progress" in vaccinating the country. The Prime Minister was quizzed about his faith in the Health Secretary after leaked messages appeared to show he called him "hopeless". Mr Johnson insisted the covid jab programme delivered by the NHS with Mr Hancock at the top is “absolutely outstanding”.
When Theresa May entered Downing Street in 2016 in the wake of the EU referendum result that prompted David Cameron to resign, her team wanted to purge the Osbornites. But rather than just sacking them, they played on their vanity. They were offered a demotion with the assumption that they would walk rather than accept the humiliation.
Dominic Cummings helped to get this ‘clueless gaffe machine’ elected – but don’t try and blame him for that
A shock result in the Chesham and Amersham by-election is enough to draw the dreaded Islington Threadmonster back to his keyboard. A number of political journalists had had the temerity to predict that, what with the Tories having won the seat 18 months ago by 16,000 votes, the same result was likely this time.
How are you enjoying Dominic Cummings’ mission to dump on Matt Hancock from the greatest possible height? I am beginning to think of it as Operation Moonshit.

Dominic Cummings appears to call the Prime Minister a “gaffe machine” in the latest of his sustained war of words with once long-standing ally Boris Johnson. The former chief aide to the Prime Minister claimed that Tory officials did not put Mr Johnson up for an interview with broadcaster Andrew Neil during the 2019 general election because he was “clueless” on policy.
Unloading his thoughts on Twitter, the PM’s former top aide branded his former boss a "gaffe machine" who is "clueless about policy and government" - and said he'd partially based the decision on his chances of "roughly controlling" him Dominic Cummings says it was a “hard decision” to help “clueless gaffe machine” Boris Johnson into Number 10.
When Dominic Cummings made his famous bombshell appearance before the Commons Health and Social Care Committee three weeks ago, one phrase he used stuck in the memory like a barb. He said he felt it was “completely crazy” that he, along with the Prime Minister, should have had so much power to determine the fate of the nation, in relation to the pandemic - a remark that raises a myriad of doubts about what Cummings thought he was doing in Downing Street, if not assisting the Prime Minister in making momentous decisions that might shape the fate of millions.
A maverick who marched to the beat of his own drum was never going to be a calm leader in a crisis Margaret Thatcher said of Lord Young, one of her most loyal ministers: “Others bring me problems, David brings solutions.” That, ultimately, is what every leader wants from their subordinates, be it in government or in business.
Jacob Rees-Mogg has leapt to the defence of Matt Hancock, telling MPs the health secretary is a “successful genius”. Hancock came under a fresh onslaught from Boris Johnson’s former adviser Dominic Cummings on Wednesday. In a rambling blogpost, Cummings published private messages, in which the prime minister called the health secretary’s performance “totally fucking hopeless”.
Boris Johnson's former adviser using controversial blog posts to drive people to website where he can earn money, allege Tory MPs Dominic Cummings has vowed to lift the lid on why ministers delayed forcing people to wear face masks to fight Covid-19 last year, as MPs accused him of profiteering from the chaos in 10 Downing St.
WHOEVER in the Number 10 team decided to go to war with Dominic Cummings needs their head examined. As the Remainers discovered, Cummings is a clever and ruthless opponent and a brilliant campaigner who is expert at exploiting the weaknesses of his adversaries, and delivering a result against the odds.
