The Prime Minister’s former adviser Dominic Cummings has threatened on Tuesday to release a damning “crucial historic document” over Boris Johnson’s “Covid decision making” during the pandemic.
Cummings has threatened to either give the document to the House of Commons committee next week or sell it for cryptocurrency for charity.
Cummings wrote on Twitter at around 11am today, “I’ve got the only copy of a crucial historical document from covid decision-making.
“Should I 1/ give it to the Cmte next week / put on blog, b/ auction it as an Ethereum NFT & give the ETH to a covid families charity?”
Underneath the tweet he is asking the public to vote if Cummings should give the original historic document to either the “Committee/blog” or “Ethereum NFT + charity.”
In a series of tweets Cummings wrote this morning seems to be exposing the government’s “world class” Covid plan as a “part disaster, part non-existent.”
Cummings wrote, “The covid plan was supposed to be ‘world class’ but turned out to be part disaster, part non-existent.
“I urged inside Gvt to do a review of other contingency plans for more dangerous things than covid, a largely *open* process with e.g @wtgowers helping. Happening?”
Cummings later wrote that he will now give the “crucial historic document” to the Committee next week after doing his poll on Twitter.
He wrote, “Did 1st twitter poll, botched options like idiot so scrapped… My point was *as well as* giving to cmte I cd also raise £ for a charity – not instead of – but I botched it… *Obviously* I’ll give to cmte Wed…”
Cummings is due to appear again before the Health and Social Care Committee and Science and Technology Committee to give evidence on the Government’s handling of the pandemic.
When he appears before the committee next the joint inquiry will examine what lessons can be learned from the Covid pandemic.
Johnson’s former adviser has also blasted the government over the handling of Brexit and called is a “catastrophe.”
Cummings wrote, “Success seems to have blinded SW1 to important Qs. a/ We did it much better than Brussels, obviously, but Brussels is not a good comparison.
“How well did we do relative to ‘how well would General Groves who ran the Manhattan Project have done it?’
“I think we’ll conclude we shd have done Human Challenge trials immediately & cd have got jabs in arms summer.
“This is not a criticism of the VTF which has been constrained in ways they shouldn’t be.
“It’s connected to b/ where is the public plan for how the VTF will deal with variants?
“One of the most fundamental & unarguable lessons of Feb-March is that secrecy contributed greatly to the catastrophe.
“Openness to scrutiny wd have exposed Gvt errors weeks earlier than happened.”
