Rishi Sunak in hot water over secret meeting with Dominic Cummings

Former chief adviser Dominic Cummings revealed that he and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak held a secret meeting to discuss his alleged return to Downing Street.

Mr Cummings who was fired by former Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote on his blog that he and Sunak had private conversations about a potential comeback to Parliament.

Mr Cummings addressed the problems stating that he had offered the Prime Minister assistance on the condition that he would be rehired, Mr Sunak declined that offer, suggesting instead that he work alongside him, behind closed and wait for his position to be reinstated after the coming general election if the conservatives are to beat out Labour.

Cummings denied this proposal as he believed that this deal would not meet his conditions.

Recalling the interaction on his blog, Mr Cummings wrote, "The PM decided against the deal I proposed. He wanted instead that I work secretly on politics and communication in return for a promise that I could come to No10 and sort out my priorities after the election,"

Cummings confirmed that he did not agree to this deal writing, "I declined."

A second discussion followed in July between Prime Minister Sunak and Mr Cummings. This conversation according to Cummings was "essentially a repeat" and that he and the Prime Minister "clearly disagreed on what he'd been doing and what he wanted to do".

Touching on the idea of assisting the Prime Minister on his campaign for the upcoming General Election Cummings wrote that the thought of it made him “feel sick”.

These claims made by Mr Cummings have angered many members of the Tory Party who do not want to see the return of Cummings in any way. One Tory Minister said that the news of the Prime Minister's engagement with Cummings displayed his “spectacularly poor judgment”.

The frustration from Tory Ministers comes as no surprise. In 2022 amidst his campaign, Mr Sunak said that Cummings would have "absolutely nothing to do with any government that I am privileged to lead".

In his blog, Mr Cummings was very critical of Prime Minister Sunak and his leadership. He wrote that he would “rather the Tories lose than continue in office without prioritising what’s important and the voters.”
