As pressure mounts to lift all restrictions, we’re about to find out if Dominic Cummings is right about Boris Johnson

When Boris Johnson returned after his serious brush with death from coronavirus, his allies encouraged political journalists like me to believe the experience had converted him from a lockdown sceptic to a “health first” advocate.

May I have a word about… expletives, from Dominic Cummings to Brooks Koepka

Well, well, well, what a bumper week it has been for asterisks – they’ve been quite wantonly strewn about in the newspapers and online. According to reports, a No 10 text calls Dominic Cummings a “disingenuous little f*cker”.
