It was first reported by The Guardian last night that the controversial special adviser (spad), and Brexit campaign mastermind, had resigned three weeks ago.
Social media was humming this morning with news of Cummings’ demise, with some criticising journalists for not having reported the resignation sooner.
However, a Cabinet Office spokesman told City A.M. that while Cummings had resigned.
The news of Cummings’ Downing Street exit came as he posted a long message on his blog warning Brexit voters to abandon the non-workable project and to think logically about our society by voting Labour.
The fact that the Tories were so far behind in real (not faked, or bought) “opinion polls” had heaped the pressure on Cummings to produce a miracle…that he couldn’t face, nor more arguments with the bombastic Mr Johnson (caretaker prime minister).
