Boris Johnson called Matt Hancock ‘totally f****** hopeless’ in WhatsApp message, Cummings says | Politics News

Boris Johnson’s former chief aide has shared a WhatsApp message in which the prime minister appears to call Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s efforts “totally f****** hopeless”.

Dominic Cummings, who has been engaged in a weeks-long feud with Downing Street, published a lengthy blogpost that he claimed showed “Number10/Hancock have repeatedly lied about the failures last year”.

In a screenshot of a WhatsApp message, which he said was from a late-night exchange on 26 March 2020, Mr Cummings and Mr Johnson are shown to be discussing actions from “MH” in boosting the UK’s COVID testing capacity.

The screenshot shows a reply, purportedly from the prime minister, stating: “Totally f****** hopeless”.
