yeah, gotta believe he knows where all the bodies are buried. that's some pretty good insurance.1) Cummings has dirt on Boris and co.
2) Cummings does all the work and they're terrified of being without him.
3) The Republican-esque strategy they're following of refusing to accept anything they don't like falls apart if they give in to the press.
4) They're incapable of shame.
5) Perhaps all of the above?
I almost see it as more likely that in a few months we'll have a new PM but Cummings will still be in place. Even if he has to be sacked from this particular role to satisfy public outcry they'll just invent another, basically equivalent job for him. That seems to be what 'sacking' amounts to these days.I think Cummings is fucked surely? The Mail has a headline telling him pretty much to fuck off.
