  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Cummings: Hancock should have been sacked for ‘criminal, disgraceful behaviour'” – below is their description.

    Dominic Cummings said he called for Matt Hancock to be sacked ‘repeatedly’ due to alleged ‘criminal’ behaviour of interfering with the building of the test-and-trace system to maximise his chances of hitting a ‘stupid target’ to test 100,000 a day by the end of April 2020. In testimony on Wednesday, Cummings said Hancock should have been fired for ‘at least 15 to 20 things – including lying to everybody on multiple occasions’. He said claims the government put a protective shield around care homes at the start of the pandemic were ‘complete nonsense’ and accused Hancock of using Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance as ‘shields for himself’
