Dominic Mckenzie Cummings is a suspected UK deep state operative who was chosen as a "special adviser" to UKPM Boris Johnson. David Cameron reportedly described him as a "career psychopath".[1]

On 8 August 2019, The Canary headlined an article about him:

"Brexit has given us an unelected bureaucrat, who married into aristocracy, pulling the strings in Downing Street."[2]

Political background

Dominic Cummings previously served as the Campaign Director of Vote Leave, the successful campaign advocating for the UK to vote to leave the European Union in the 2016 EU Referendum.[3] He also worked as Special Adviser to Education Secretary Michael Gove. In March 2019, he was found in contempt of Parliament for not appearing before the parliamentary committee inquiry into false news during the referendum campaign.[4]

Coronavirus warning

HIGNFY"She won't get pregnant anyway"

In May 2020, doubt was cast on Dominic Cummings’ claim he warned of the threat of coronavirus “last year” after the discovery of a recent edit on the Downing Street adviser’s blog.

During a Downing Street press conference on Monday 25 May 2020 in which he denied he broke UK lockdown rules, Mr Cummings said he had written about the “possible threat of coronaviruses” in 2019.

“For years, I have warned of the dangers of pandemics,” he told reporters.

“Last year I wrote about the possible threat of coronaviruses and the urgent need for planning,” Mr Cummings added.

The PA news agency did find 15 mentions of the term “pandemic” on Mr Cummings’ blog but cached versions of the website show the only mention of the terms “coronavirus” and “SARS” (severe acute respiratory syndrome) were added in April this year.[5]

HIGNFY

BBC television programme "Have I Got News For You?" of 29 May 2020 is presented by Martin Clunes with panellists Ian Hislop, Paul Merton, Janet Street-Porter and Fin Taylor. Touching on the Dominic Cummings debacle, this classic edition of HIGNFY concludes with Paul Merton and the immortal words "She won't get pregnant anyway".[6]

Brexit "scandal"

In October 2016, the Mail on Sunday reported that the then Chief Whip, Gavin Williamson, told Downing Street that Michael Gove had had a homosexual relationship with personal and political ally Dominic Cummings, chief strategist of the Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 EU Referendum.[7]

Personal life

In December 2011 Dominic Cummings married Mary Wakefield, the daughter of Sir Edward Humphry Tyrrel Wakefield of Chillingham Castle in Northumberland, who became commissioning editor of The Spectator magazine.[8] In 2016, Mary gave birth to a boy.[9]

Criticism

Dominic Cummings is the brains behind Boris. But his dangerous ramblings amount to wanting to re-engineer society by transforming our education system based on dangerous eugenics.[10]

Exposure

On 24 April 2020, it was revealed that Dominic Cummings and Ben Warner, a data scientist he worked with on the Vote Leave campaign for Brexit, are on the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), the secret scientific group advising the government on the coronavirus pandemic.[11] 0n 29 April 2020 James Forsyth wrote in the Spectator that Cummings invited Demis Hassabis to dial in to a SAGE meeting.[12]
