“Get COVID and live longer” – Dominic Cummings shares the PM’s ageist WhatsApps

Like a disgruntled ex with an axe to grind, Dominic Cummings has been spilling the beans on his time as a Special Adviser in 10 Downing Street, and we can’t imagine it’s doing much good for the PM’s blood pressure.

Among his previous allegations we’ve heard –

The Cabinet Office is ‘terrifyingly shit’
Boris Johnson thought Matt Hancock was ‘fucking hopeless’
The PM tells long, rambling pointless stories and they got more work done while he was in hospital.

When Number 10 heard that Cummings had given an exclusive interview to the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg, we expect the damage-limitation meeting looked something like this.

How old is Stanley Johnson, again?

Jim Felton had a good question.

We doubt Johnson has a good answer.
