More Tory MPs call for Cummings to go


A growing number of Conservative MPs are calling for UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to sack his top aide, Dominic Cummings.

It comes after prominent 1922 Committee member Steve Baker first said this morning Cummings “must go”.

Other Tory MPs include:

Sir Roger Gale, MP for North Thanet, who tweeted that Cummings’ position “is no longer tenable”
Caroline Nokes, MP for Romsey and Southampton, who tweeted “there cannot be one rule for most of us and wriggle room for others”
Craig Whittaker, MP for Calder Valley, who agreed Cummings’ position was “untenable” and tweeted that “you cannot advise the nation one thing then do the opposite”
Damian Collins, MP for Folkestone and Hythe and former chair of the digital, culture, media and sport Committee, who tweeted “the government would be better without [Cummings]”
Simon Hoare, MP for North Dorset, who tweeted that Cummings “must consider his position” and was “wounding the PM/Govt”
Peter Bone, MP for Wellingborough and Rushden, told LBC that Cummings “has to go” because he broke the rules and has not apologised
William Wragg, MP for Hazel Grove, has retweeted Baker’s criticism of Cummings.
