BORIS Johnson branded Matt Hancock "totally f***ing hopeless" and wanted to replace him with Michael Gove, bombshell WhatsApps released by Dominic Cummings reveal today.
The vengeful ex-No10 aide published an expletive-ridden 7,000-word blogpost stuffed with explosive screenshots of texts with the PM.
One message from March 2020 shows Mr Cummings complaining about Mr Hancock's handling of Britain's sluggish testing rollout.
The PM bluntly replies: "Totally f***ing hopeless".
Mr Johnson later appeared to denounce efforts to procure PPE as a "disaster" and suggested Mr Hancock be stripped of responsibility.
Blaming the Health Secretary for botching the job, he added: "I can't think of anything except taking Hancock off and putting Gove on."
Boris was asked about the remarks at PMQs by the SNP's Ian Blackford, but dodged the question and did not respond.
