That person is former chief Downing Street polecat Dominic Cummings, who appears to have amassed sufficient evidence of his time with Bozo to be able to guide anyone in the media prepared to listen to him to where the bodies are buried. It is down to him that we know of the 20th May 2020 party. And it is that party which could finally finish Bozo.
The PM has already stood before the Commons and claimed that he did not know that the party was actually a party, that he “believed implicitly” that it was a work meeting. Now he stands accused by the Polecat of lying when he made that claim, with a second prong of attack bringing yet more lockdown busting revelations from March 2020.
Bozo told the nation on March 23 that year “From this evening I must give the British People a very simple instruction - you must stay at home”. But the people at Tortois media claim that not only was the broadcast pre-recorded, but that Bozo went that day from Downing Street to Chequers. His then partner Carrie Symonds was also involved.
She allegedly went to Chequers on March 20 (apparently contravening the “non-essential travel” advice of March 16), then back to Downing Street on the 24th, back to Chequers on the 25th, and finally back to Downing Street on the 28th. It seems the last move was forced on her, as Chequers was forced to close following Covid related staff absences.
But it is the latest broadside from Cummings that is Bozo’s greatest problem. And this is his pitch: “The PM’s PPS invited people to a drinks party … The PPS was told to cancel the invite by at least two people … He checked with the PM whether the party should go ahead … The PM agreed it should … They both went to the party … It was actually a drinks party … The PM told MPs repeatedly that he had no idea about any parties”.
The Polecat’s conclusion was as straightforward as it was stark: “The events of 20 May alone, never mind the string of other events, mean the PM lied to Parliament about parties … Not only me but other eyewitnesses who discussed this at the time would swear under oath this is what happened”. Only one more piece of this jigsaw is now missing.
And that is the proof, the smoking gun email maybe, that backs up Cummings’ claim. It should be remembered that without that, Bozo will keep on trying to bluster his way out of it. So far, the Polecat has played this with the precision of a game of chess, gradually manoeuvring his opponent into a progressively tighter corner. If he has done that with an endgame in mind, then he has now to pony up the final piece of that jigsaw.
It may come via another of those anonymous and non-attributable leaks; he may make the move directly. What is becoming clear is that Bozo’s hold on the Premiership is at a tipping point: one sufficiently powerful shove and those Tory MPs who have so tenaciously backed him will fall away, leaving him exposed, alone - and facing removal from office.
Cummings has Bozo in check. The question now is - can he make it check mate?
