Dominic Cummings has revealed he discussed ousting Boris Johnson within days of the Conservatives winning the December 2019 election by a landslide.
The PM’s former chief adviser told the BBC it seemed that, by mid-January 2020, Mr Johnson did not “have a plan”.
Mr Cummings also alleged the PM’s wife Carrie Johnson had tried to influence government appointments.
But, despite quitting Downing Street last autumn following a power struggle, he denied being motivated by revenge.
Asked about Mr Cummings’s comments, a government spokesperson said ministers were fully focused on recovery from the pandemic and restoring the economy.BBC News YouTube Channel
