Cummings: We discussed replacing Johnson as prime minister one month after winning the election
Former Downing Street aide Dominic Cummings said that after helping Boris Johnson get a majority of 80 seats, he intends to remove the prime minister.
Mr. Cummings, who left the 10th place in the fall after a power struggle, accused Mr. Johnson of not having a plan and said that he “does not know how to become prime minister”.
In an interview with the BBC, the vote-leave planner stated that he assisted the Conservative Party in the December 2019 poll to resolve the Brexit debate, not because of any firm belief in his leadership.
Mr. Cummings also exposed the fierce relationship between the former voting fake official and Mr. Johnson’s current wife, Kelly Johnson, only a few weeks after an overwhelming victory.
“Even before mid-January, we had a meeting on the 10th and said it was clear that Carrie (Johnson) wanted to get rid of all of us,” said the former de facto chief of staff.
“At that time we were already saying that by the summer, either we will all leave here, or we are trying to get rid of him and let others be prime ministers.”
