DOMINIC Cummings today branded Boris Johnson a “gaffe machine” who couldn’t be trusted to do interviews.
The ex-No10 aide also said the PM was “clueless about policy and government” as he continued down the warpath on Twitter.
Taking a swipe at his old boss, he claimed aides blocked Mr Johnson from doing a crunch interview for fear he’d hash it up.
Mr Johnson was memorably the only party leader to duck a prime-time sit-down with BBC inquisitor Andrew Neil at the 2019 general election.
Mr Cummings tweeted: “Why the f*** would be put a gaffe machine clueless about policy & government up to be grilled for ages, upside=0 for what?!”
Asked if the PM was a “gaffe machine”, Downing Street hit back: “That’s not a characterisation that we would accept.”
