Boris Johnson’s de facto chief of staff has risked increasing tensions in Whitehall by dismissing concerns from MPs over the effects of the prime minister’s language.
When approached by Labour MP Karl Turner in Portcullis House to be told Johnson’s recent remarks had led to death threats being levelled at him, Dominic Cummings simply replied: “Get Brexit done”. Turner responded “it’s a disgrace”.
Karl Turner MP tells Dominic Cummings he's received death threats overnight.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
