Boris Johnson calls The Telegraph his 'real boss', claims Dominic Cummings

Dominic Cummings is at it again, hitting out at his former boss Boris Johnson.

This time, following the publication of the damning Sue Gray report, he has alleged that Johnson "doesn't think he did anything wrong" and in 2020 said: "Everyone better remember I'm the f***ing Fuhrer around here".

It comes after Gray's report said the "senior leadership" in No 10 must ‘bear responsibility" for the culture which led to lockdown rules being broken at a series of events in 2020 and 2021.

But Johnson told a Downing Street press conference: "I understand why people are indignant and why people have been angry at what took place."

"I overwhelmingly feel it is my job to get on and deliver.

"No matter how bitter and painful that the conclusions of this may be – and they are – and no matter how humbling they are, I have got to keep moving forward and the Government has got to keep moving. And we are."

Meanwhile Cummings has emerged as one of Johnson's most vocal critics in the last year or so, and has slammed his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
