Dominic Cummings claims Boris Johnson 'doesn't take women seriously' in latest attack

Dominic Cummings has claimed Boris Johnson doesn’t take women seriously and stares at their breasts.

In a blogpost shared on his Twitter feed on Wednesday, the PM’s former special adviser said a female leader of the Labour Party would be best placed to beat Johnson at the next election.

Describing Labour’s Lisa Nandy as the ideal candidate, Cummings went on to say that one woman who has worked closely with Johnson said the PM treated women like they were “idiots”.

Cummings wrote: “Boris cannot take women seriously. Both in Vote Leave 2015-16 and government 2019-20, I brought in some brilliant young women to key roles. Boris, like many men in politics/government, struggled to listen to them. 

"As one woman who knows Boris extremely well and has worked very closely with him said to me last year, ‘he can’t take women seriously, he can’t help staring at tits and talking like we’re idiots’. He will massively struggle with a woman opponent and he is already very vulnerable with women under-50.”

Cummings and Johnson have had a dramatic falling out in the past year.

In July, he told the BBC he thought Johnson being Prime Minister was “terrible for the country”, but that he and “a few dozen” backers sought to use his premiership to their advantage.

He said he had found Johnson to have “hopeless” traits after working with him during the 2016 Brexit referendum, but agreed after he entered Downing Street three years later to assist him.

However, he claims he tried to oust him as PM only weeks after helping him secure an 80-seat majority because he “doesn’t know how to be Prime Minister”.

Cummings, who left No 10 in the autumn after a power struggle, admitted he was now working to bring an end to Prime Minister’s tenure. He said: “Certainly. The sooner he goes the better, for sure.”

In May, Cummings gave explosive testimony to a select committee of MPs in which he repeatedly criticised Johnson and then-Health Secretary Matt Hancock's handling of the pandemic.

Downing Street has repeatedly rejected Cummings’ characterisations of Johnson as unfit for the job.

Supporters of the prime minister say Cummings has an axe to grind and that his criticisms of the PM are self-serving and without merit.
