The former No10 adviser has been a vocal critic of the West Suffolk MP’s conduct during the pandemic. This afternoon he heaped more pressure on Mr Hancock as he published a fresh tirade against him online, accusing him of having “failed terribly”.
He said the civil service” “Systematically promote Hancocks, and systematically block learning from high performance, which is seen as a dangerous menace by normal bureaucracies.
“Thus we get Hancocked.”
He added: “Hancock had failed terribly. The Cabinet Office did not have the people it needed to solve the problem.
“Many were screaming at me that Hancock was failing to act on care homes and spinning nonsense to the Cabinet table while thousands were dying in care homes.”
Sharing a screenshot of a WhatsApps message he sent at the height of the crisis last spring, Mr Cummings attacked the Government’s failure on testing those in hospitals and in care homes.
The message said: “I think we are negligently killing the most vulnerable who we are supposed to be shielding and I am extremely worried about it.”
The new attack comes just hours after No10 said Prime Minister Boris Johnson still had “full confidence” in the Health Secretary.
Pressure was heaped on Mr Hancock’s position after pictures emerged in The Sun newspaper this morning showing his clinching his personal aide.
The West Suffolk MP passionately kissed Gina Coladangelo in a Department for Health corridor, two weeks before the guidelines on close personal contact were eased.
