Don’t think so. He is far too important to Boris, his puppeteer, pulls all the strings and the PM dances. Remember Mandelson in Blair and Brown’s governments? Cummings holds the same position. Mandelson (now a Lord of course) hung on because he knew where several bodies were buried, and exactly who buried them. In the end he went, and then wrote his book “The Third Man” in which he praises Blair to the skies, and assassinates Brown in print.

Cummings will no doubt hang on until he does something that cannot be allowed to continue. He will probably wind up a Lord too. After the Coronavirus situation has calmed down, he may be pushed or he may jump, but I suspect only on his own terms.

I'm out.
