MANY people will be heartily sick of Dominic Cummings as he finds, through the BBC, another platform from which to launch an uncorroborated attack on the Prime Minister who sacked him.

Hell indeed hath no fury like a special adviser spurned.

Mr Cummings has used leaks, blog posts, tweets and a seven hour marathon session before MPs to attack Mr Johnson, and the Prime Minister withstood all of those. Even Matt Hancock withstood being labelled hopeless, until he was caught, almost literally, with his trousers down.

Now Mr Cummings has a television programme dedicated to his thoughts.

Not bad for someone who has never stood for election and so has no mandate, has never run anything like a business and so has no experience, and when in a government department invented free schools which just caused mayhem.

He does, though, have a happy knack of inventing snappy phrases and images, as his native North-East discovered in 2004 with his white elephant-led campaign.

He seems not to believe in anything, other than himself, and in rubbing people up the wrong way.

However, before we dismiss him entirely, his perpetual revolution seems to be grasping towards finding a better way of governing Britain. The one bit of levelling up that people can understand – moving civil service jobs and money away from the comfort of London – is probably his work and is commendable.

And his questions of government are worth noting. We have a Prime Minister with conflicting strategies of opening everything up while keeping increasing numbers of people in pingdown, and in Sajid Javid we have a politician with no previous experience or even interest in health who, having failed as Chancellor, is suddenly running the health department in the heat of a pandemic.
