People are mocking Dominic Cummings after judges 'outside London' rule against Boris Johnson

It’s been a difficult week for Boris Johnson, but an even more tricky time for his chief adviser Dominic Cummings.

Cummings – who masterminded Vote Leave’s referendum campaign and was brought into Downing Street by Johnson after he became PM – is suspected to be the brains behind controversial moves such as expelling rebel Tory MPs and suspending parliament for five weeks.

Earlier this week, Cummings told reporters to get out of London and stop speaking to “rich Remainers” who oppose Brexit.

This is despite the fact that his wife's family reportedly owns a castle...

But following the ruling by Scotland’s High Court that Johnson’s prorogation of parliament is unlawful, everyone is making the same joke at the No.10 strategist’s expense.

It seems he wants people to talk to people outside London... As long as they aren't Scottish judges.
