Dominic Cummings: Boris Johnson knows its ‘ludicrous’ he’s prime minister

Boris Johnson “regularly admits” he is unfit to be the U.K.’s prime minister, his former chief aide Dominic Cummings claimed.

Cummings — the most senior adviser in Downing Street until he left government in November 2020 — said his old boss first acknowledged it would be “ludicrous” for him to become prime minister in 2016 after the pair helped deliver a Leave vote in the Brexit referendum.

Since entering Downing Street three years later, Johnson “regularly admits it’s ludicrous he’s prime minister,” according to Cummings, who has used his Substack newsletter and a parliamentary committee session to launch multiple attacks on his former boss in recent months.
