Former No10 aid Dominic Cummings has insisted he had a secret plot to oust Boris Johnson as Prime Minister within a month of his 2019 election victory. During the BBC’s Dominic Cummings with Laura Kuenssberg, the former aide insisted Boris Johnson got off to a very rocky start as Prime Minister. Mr Cummings made the claim that Carrie Symonds, the Prime Minister’s then-girlfriend was the cause of much of the turmoil.
He said he and many of his other Vote Leave allies began to clash with Ms Symonds over who was in control of the Government.
Mr Cummings accused Ms Symonds of believing it should be her pulling the strings.
Speaking to Ms Kuenssberg, Mr Cummings said: “Before even mid-January, we were having meetings in Number 10 saying it’s clear that Carrie Johnson wants to be rid of all of us.
“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.
“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.”
