Thread Name: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
From The Observer today.
The message Johnson wanted to convey was that the MPs’ attempts to block no deal were taking the heat off Brussels. During an hour of discussions, [Greg] Clark asked for some specific details on particular issues and Johnson said someone from his office would get back to him. Later that day, Clark received a phone call from Johnson’s closest aide, Dominic Cummings, which failed to provide answers. Instead Clark found himself on the end of a foul-mouthed tirade.
According to sources aware of the exchange, Cummings bawled at him, saying: “When are you MPs going to realise that we are leaving on 31 October?” before adding: “We are going to fucking purge you.”
