Appointed byBoris Johnson

Dominic Mckenzie Cummings, whom David Cameron reportedly described as a "career psychopath" was chosen by UKPM Boris Johnson as a special adviser.[2]

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."[3]

Pen picture

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.[4]

Political background

A controversial figure, 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.[5] 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.[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]
