Well we know Scummings spent a few years in Russia and built up a lot of contacts there...

And Boris was seen as a real danger for our inteliigence services - as he used to attend bonga bonga parties with Russians on a private mountain in Italy. He is totally compromised - I bet they have lots of footage that they can use against him. Parties attended by young 'escorts'

When he was, briefly, our Foreign Secretary, and widely acknowledged to be, by far the worst Foreign Secretary we'd ever had. Boris Johnson was apparently not allowed to see sensitive dispatches because he was regarded as a security risk.

Surely his appointment of Dominic Cummings as his SPAD, and his apparent total reliance on him, is confirmation of that risk.

Indeed- but some just refuse to see this - ostridges with head in sand. This is very serious, if Boris allowed himself to be seriously at risk of blackmail by foreign powers determined to undermine our Democracy and destroy Europe for their own gain.

He will get 300+ a day for sitting on top of his squillions.

UC pays ยฃ300 pm.

Do you think that the Queen might refuse to allow his peerage to go through? She has to 'approve' all these 'nominations'

No of course not!

Cummings would have no worries over getting rid of the monarchy.
