Dominic CummingsThe prime minister’s chief adviser was a vote campaign architect who won the 2016 referendum and then returned to Downing Street in 1998 to drive. Boris Johnson Brexit agreement
Mr. Cummings was the mastermind of “Oven Ready” Bracey“The general election victory that provided the largest conservative majority since Thatcher’s years.
When he is Leaving Downing Street, His impact on Britain will be felt long after he leaves.
But while Mr. Cummings has played a key role in the country’s Brexit journey, his unparalleled power and brutality in politics – (remember the expulsion of 21 Conservative MPs, including former Chancellor Sir Clark and Philip Hammond, at the top of the Brexit war?) With his team, he has forged relationships with Whitehall and the media.
Even after Mr. Cummings’ mid-lockdown trip to Durham, the Prime Minister’s relationship with the people was badly damaged, which resulted in the national scandal and Mr. Cummings becoming a family name for all the wrong reasons.
The Prime Minister spent a huge amount of political capital by saving an advisor which should be remembered by his own MPs and the public.
