I have written to Sir Mark Sedwill seeking an immediate investigation into the rule-breaking and the Tory government’s cover-up - and to call for Dominic Cummings to resign or be sacked.
Boris Johnson must answer serious questions about his role in this incident and the cover-up - including when he found out, when he heard about the police action, why Mr Cummings wasn’t sacked immediately, and why he kept the public in the dark for eight weeks until a newspaper broke the story.
Dominic Cummings’ position is completely untenable.
This is a matter of leadership and judgment for the prime minister who must prevent lasting damage to his government and his own reputation.
Millions of us have made huge sacrifices over the months to obey the rules, while Boris Johnson’s most senior adviser was breaking them.
There cannot be one rule for the Tory government and another for the rest of us.
