Which is as it should be now that he has done the job he was hired for - and done it extremely well too if the howls of disdain from the execrators are anything to go by!

Re: Dominic Cummings to leave Downing Street by Christmas

Something I missed:

Dominic Cummings' ally Cleo Watson quits

27 November 2020

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...uits-No10.html



Special adviser Cleo Watson is understood to have handed in her resignation yesterday, a fortnight after the maverick No10 chief departed.

The exit underlines the waning hold of Vote Leave veterans over the heart of government, as Boris Johnson tries to 'reset' his premiership.

Ms Watson worked on the Brexit campaign before joining the No10 operation under Theresa May, and taking a more senior role when Mr Johnson became PM.

Although the 31-year-old's official title is "Head of the PM's Priorities and Campaigns", she has been known as the 'the Cummings whisperer' due to her reputed ability to calm him down.

The pair were regularly seen walking into Downing Street together in the mornings, with Ms Watson's smart appearance in stark contrast to Mr Cummings' shambolic style.

There had been hopes that Ms Watson would opt to stay on in her post, as she was not regarded as being deeply involved in the extraordinary civil war.
Is Cleo The Dome's Last Vestige .....

Cummings: PM's former aide got £45,000 pay rise

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-55322985

Boris Johnson's former chief aide Dominic Cummings enjoyed a bumper pay rise earlier this year, new figures have revealed.

His basic salary rose by about £45,000 to between £140,000 and £144,999.

Cummings is still on the government payroll but is working his notice at home, having left Downing Street in November following a bitter row over the running of Mr Johnson's office.
https://www.getsurrey.co.uk/news/uk-...minic-19463474

Labour’s deputy leader Angela Rayner said: “Boris Johnson defended Dominic Cummings when he broke lockdown rules – then awarded him a £50,000 pay rise. Yet he’s freezing pay for key workers and refusing to give our care workers a pay rise to the living wage.

“Cummings’ bumper bonus is an insult to key workers denied the pay rise they deserve. It’s another example of how under this Government, it is one rule for the Tory Party and their friends and another for the rest of us.”
Of course, BJ will rationalise it as "standardising pay levels" .....

Re: Dominic Cummings to leave Downing Street by Christmas

Hi

What would be interesting is to see his pay off.

Spads are normally of fixed term contracts which are payable in full.

We owe Cummings a very great deal. Hopefully he will soon be able to assist in sorting out the awful Civil Service.

Yes, we do owe him. Let's give it a few months before Boris brings him back to do just that and the HoL too.
