Out came the second revelation. But there was no response from alleged Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson. Grant “Spiv” Shapps shuffled uncomfortably before the inquisition of Sophy Ridge; he was then grilled by Andrew Marr until very tender indeed. Then came the possibility of a third revelation including news of a third lockdown-busting jaunt to Durham. Only then was there some movement.tell the likes of Robert Peston “it is ‘only a matter of time’ until the prime minister asks him to go”, Cummings digs in his heels. Because he doesn’t care. If it causes constituents to turn against their MPs, he doesn’t care. It’s not his problem.
Dominic Cummings doesn’t care. And that could turn out to be his most damaging legacy.
