Met never asked me for lockdown party evidence, says Dominic CummingsBoris Johnson’s former aide is identified as present at two events and mentioned six times in Sue Gray report Bennyyyyyyyyy...😅😅😅 Our entire political system is rotten and inevitability in the context of our chosen economic system.. Cummings really does need to slither back under his rock. So bored of him drip feeding whatever he has over Boris even though he was perfectly happy to support him when all was rosy for him.
