Dominic Cummings Courts One Last Moment In The Spotlight As He Leaves Downing Street

Dominic Cummings has been pictured leaving Downing Street through the front door while carrying a storage box, as he exited the political stage with a theatrical flourish.

Boris Johnson’s top adviser revealed on Thursday night he would be quitting No. 10 by the end if the year following a tumultuous week at the top levels of British government.

But on Friday night he appeared to be leaving earlier than even he suggested and opted to exit through the famous No. 10 front door.

As political commentators pointed out, Cummings could have left via the basement back door or through the Cabinet Office – but instead chose to depart passed the media station outside the PM’s residence. 

The prime minister’s controversial aide was expected to leave his role by the end of the year following the resignation of his fellow Vote Leave veteran Lee Cain as communications chief.

Cummings insisted to the BBC that “rumours of me threatening to resign are invented” after it was suggested he would exit in protest over the treatment of his ally.

But Cummings said his “position hasn’t changed since my January blog” in which he said he hoped to be “largely redundant” by 2021.

He now appears to have hastened that exit.
