Dominic Cummings claims he considered a COUP to get rid of Boris Johnson

Dominic Cummings will tonight claim he plotted to oust Boris Johnson just weeks after his massive 2019 general election win. 

In an interview with the BBC, due to be broadcast tonight he said that by the middle of January 2020 – even before Covid struck, the Prime Minister ‘did not have a plan for governing’.

And he admitted that he and the rest of his Vote Leave allies began to clash with the then Carrie Symonds over who controlled the premier.

In Dominic Cummings: The Interview, which will be aired at 7pm tonight he accuses the Prime Minister’s now wife of deciding it should be ‘me that’s pulling the strings’. 

In an interview with the BBC, Mr Cummings – who was Mr Johnson’s closest aide before resigning last autumn – said: ‘Before even mid-January we were having meetings in Number 10 saying it’s clear that Carrie (Johnson) wants rid of all of us.

And he admitted that he and the rest of his Vote Leave allies began to clash with the then Carrie Symonds over who controlled the premier.

‘At that point we were already saying by the summer either we’ll all have gone from here or we’ll be in the process of trying to get rid of him and get someone else in as Prime Minister.’

He added: ‘(Mr Johnson) doesn’t have a plan, he doesn’t know how to be Prime Minister and we only got him in there because we had to solve a certain problem not because he was the right person to be running the country.’

The revelation is the latest broadside from Mr Cummings, who has repeatedly bitten the hand that once fed him since he was axed last year. 

In the interview he will also accuse Mr Johnson pf trying to avoid a second lockdown last year by joking that it would only kill the over 80s who were expendable.

Mr Cummings also alleged he had to talk the PM out of visiting the Queen early in the pandemic by pointing out he could kill her if he was infected.
