Calls for Dominic Cummings to be sacked over “herd immunity” cock-up

There are growing calls for Boris Johnson’s chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, to be sacked – after it was revealed that he advocated a policy on coronavirus that would have led to hundreds of thousands of deaths.

The Sunday Times has today published a long read on the dramatic events of the past month, as senior government figures debated the UK’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.


The article reveals that Cummings was an earlier proponent of “herd immunity” – the idea that we should let coronavirus pass through the population, to build up widespread resistance to the disease.

According to the report, Cummings presented his plan at a private engagement at the end of February. Those present claim the plan was effectively: “herd immunity, protect the economy and if that means some pensioners die, too bad.”

However, at a meeting of scientific and medical experts on 12th March, Cummings realised that he had got things badly wrong.

“He realised he had helped set a course for catastrophe,” the article reads. In particular, a report published by Imperial College suggested that the government’s “herd immunity” strategy could lead to 250,000 deaths by mid-summer.

As a result, Cummings dramatically U-turned, and became an advocate for strict measures to ensure social distancing.

And so, these revelations have stoked renewed calls for Cummings to lose his job.

Indeed, we don’t know how many lives Cummings has, but surely he is running out. The Downing Street wannabe mafia boss, who hired a eugenicist to work for the Prime Minister, has also been accused of bullying government advisers.

The evidence is incontrovertible: Dominic Cummings is a danger to Britain. Sign here to call for him to be sacked.

  1. The British people will never forgive you if you don’t get rid of this person now! He is dangerous & will help bring about you political downfall. He must go!

  2. Cummings has shown time and time again how unfit and inept he is. His views are delusional and downright dangerous. He thrives on his narcissistic noterity and must be sacked for the good of the country.

  3. He is not evil but he thinks he is far cleverer than he is. Todays latest announcement about singling out the 1.5m most affected is another example of supposed Scientific leadership when its no more than a ridiculous attempt to prove modelling is helping !! If people are in their own homes but their family are allowed out they are no more safe than if they went out themselves. He may be IQ of 144 but he’s emotional intelligence of 0 !!!!

  4. Have you considered lodging a FOI request on Downing St / the Cabinet Office for the terms of DC’s engagement / contract of service ?

    Also, what’s the latest on who funded BJ’s Martinique Vodka martini honeymoon ?

  5. It’s not enough for Cummings to go. Apparently both Johnson and Matt Hancock had opposed the “herd immunity” strategy from the very start. If Hancock had had even a smidgen of integrity, he would have resigned over the issue weeks ago.

    As for Johnson, apart from the fact that the buck stops with him, the whole incident shows him to be a sniveling coward too afraid to overrule his chief advisor in a national emergency.

    SARS COV2 is a microscopic enemy attacking our nation. The first duty of a government us to protect the people from such an enemy. The government has failed in this duty.
