With violent attacks on the British Prime Minister Boris johnson Its former chief advisor, Dominic Cummings, defended himself against the allegations, stating that he was responsible for disseminating embarrassing text messages from the Prime Minister and other government officials to the media.
In a lengthy post on his website on Friday, Cummings “leveled several false accusations against the media at the prime minister’s request” on Johnson’s communications secretary, Jack Doyle.
“Standards of competence and integrity are falling”
Cummings wrote, “It is sad to see how far the Prime Minister and his office have fallen below standards of competence and integrity.” At the same time, he came out with counter-allegations that put Johnson in a bad light.
Its background is a series of text messages from members of the government suspected of improper lobbying. Among other things, it was about an SMS exchange between Johnson and billionaire entrepreneur James Dyson. British newspapers reported on Friday that Johnson’s staff suspected Cummings behind the leak.

For his part, Cummings accused the British Prime Minister of blocking an internal investigation into earlier revelations because the man responsible was a friend of his fiancée, Carrie Symonds.
He reported extensively secretly about Johnson’s alleged plans to finance the renovation of his Downing Street apartment from private donors. He refused to help Johnson with these plans, stating that they were “immoral, unwise and possibly illegal,” Cummings wrote. He offered to repeat his allegations under oath and authenticate them with the help of private text messages.
Opposition criticizes alleged cover-up
The opposition described the revelations as “extremely damaging”. He showed how “this story” is driving the country “through WhatsApp messages with friends”, with no exception, Labor shadow minister Chi Owurah told Times Radio. Labor Vice Chairman Angela Rainer accused the conservative government of “vaccinating between cover-up and clout”. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Downing Street denied all charges against Johnson.
Cummings stepped down as chief advisor to Johnson last December.
