Dominic Cummings to give evidence to Covid inquiry today after ‘dysfunctional’ No10 infighting revealed

Dominic Cummings, former chief aide to Boris Johnson, is due to give evidence to the Covid inquiry today. His evidence is expected to be damning, with Cummings likely to slam Johnson’s leadership during the pandemic and reveal details of the “dysfunctional” infighting that took place within No10.

Cummings is also expected to take aim at Matt Hancock, the former Health Secretary, who he has previously mocked for his reality TV appearances. Cummings is said to have been particularly critical of Hancock’s handling of the pandemic, and is likely to use his evidence to further attack his record.

The inquiry has already heard evidence that the Government became highly “dysfunctional” during the pandemic, with WhatsApp messages showing the turmoil at the heart of power.

In one message, Cabinet Secretary Simon Case complained that Johnson kept changing stance and that he “cannot lead and we cannot support him in leading with this approach”.

Cummings’ evidence is likely to provide further details of this dysfunction, and will be closely watched by those who want to understand how the Government handled the pandemic.
