A lawmaker from Britain’s ruling Conservative Party on Sunday called for the resignation of Dominic Cummings, the senior adviser to Prime Minister Boris Johnson who travelled 400 km (250 miles) from London to northern
England during lockdown while his wife showed coronavirus symptoms.
“It is intolerable that Boris’ government is losing so much political capital,” Steve Baker wrote on Twitter. “Dominic Cummings must go.”
It is intolerable that Boris’ government is losing so much political capital. Three changes are immediately required:— Steve Baker MP (@SteveBakerHW) May 24, 2020
1 - Govt needs competitive expert advice
2 - Govt must insist on high software engineering standards
3 - Dominic Cummings must gohttps://t.co/zUOCVcDAmN
Johnson’s office said on Saturday he made the journey to ensure his 4-year-old son could be properly cared for as his wife was ill with COVID-19 and there was a “high likelihood” that Cummings would himself become unwell.
