Boris Johnson 'let Brits die from Covid to save his political skin' CLAIMS Dominic Cummings.

DOMINIC Cummings has accused Boris Johnson of letting Brits die from Covid to save his political skin.

The shamed former No10 aide has launched a fresh volley of attacks on the PM in his first TV interview since sensationally leaving Downing Street in a political dust up.

He said Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance both urged the PM to lockdown last September to stop a killer second wave, but Boris told them “no no no”.

The rogue former Downing Street chief also revealed Whatsapps from Bojo sent last October in which the PM said he said he no longer “buys into all this NHS overwhelmed stuff”.

In yet another blistering broadside against the PM, he told the BBC: “His attitude at that point [autumn 2020] was a weird mix of, er, partly it’s all nonsense and lockdowns don’t work anyway and partly, well this is terrible but the people who are dying are essentially all over 80 and we can’t kill the economy just because of people dying over 80.”

“Lots of people heard the Prime Minister say that, the Prime Minister texted that to me and other people.

“He put his own political interests ahead of people’s lives for sure.”
