Former adviser to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Dominic Cummings caused a storm in the political scene by contributing Your blog, In it he wrote that, among other things, his former employer secretly wanted to pay for the expensive renovation of his apartment from sponsors.
Cummings also says Johnson has stopped investigating the leak of isolated information about his fiance Gary Symonds. The BBC server wrote that Labor was asking for an explanation from the opposition and wanted to address its questions in Johnson’s cabinet.
A post on Cummings’ blog, since last year, appeared online on Friday. Among other things, the former prime minister’s adviser has denied allegations that he sent personal communication content between the prime minister and Tyson’s leader to the media. This sparked speculation about the illegal campaign as Johnson promised to help with taxes with the head of a ventilator company.
However, a section of the blog in which Cummings described the prime minister’s desire to pay back for the apartment’s expensive renovation also provoked outrage in the opposition ranks.
“I told him it was unfair, unreasonable and illegal – I refused to make these payments,” Cummings wrote.
In response to the contribution, the Prime Minister’s Office said Johnson had paid 58 58,000 (1.7 million crowns) for a bill to renovate the apartment on Downing Street.
According to the Sunday Times, Cummings will continue to attack the Prime Minister, blaming him personally for the tens of thousands who died in the second wave of the epidemic. He is expected to deliver his speech before a parliamentary committee at the end of May.
“Dominic has copies of everything and knows where the skeletons are hidden. In the autumn, he pressed for a decision to isolate the prime minister, and he has ample evidence that the postponement has had catastrophic consequences,” Cummings’ colleague was quoted as saying by the Sunday Times.
Cummings was the central driver behind the referendum on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU in 2016, which, according to analysts, was behind Johnson’s Conservative Party’s landslide victory in the 2019 parliamentary elections. Until last November he was Johnson’s chief adviser. (CDK)
