The pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to sack his offending top advisor Dominic Cummings is mounting after the departure of Scottish Secretary of State Douglas Ross.
Douglas Ross bit his tongue pending more information but was unable to hold back after the Dominic Cummings press conference.
The Deputy Minister resigned this morning out of dissatisfaction with Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s strategist staying on.
During the lockdown, Cummings drove over 400 kilometres from London to Durham with his infected wife and child.
“Some people in my constituency couldn’t say goodbye to their loved ones,” Ross said in a statement.
“Families who couldn’t mourn together. People who did not visit sick relatives because they followed government rules. I can’t look them in the eye and say they were wrong and one advisor was right on his side.”
