UK PM faces cabinet revolt over senior adviser who violated lockdown - The Sun

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing a revolt from his cabinet over his backing of senior adviser Dominic Cummings, who faces calls from within the Conservative Party to resign for driving 250 miles during the coronavirus lockdown, the Sun newspaper reported late on Sunday https://bit.ly/3egA6CJ. "He (Cummings) cannot stay," the newspaper quoted an unnamed cabinet minister as saying. "There has to be some contrition from Boris too or he will spend the next ten weeks having to answer questions about it all."

"This is not a bubble story. Real people are furious, because they have been doing the right thing and isolating," the minister said. A second unnamed minister cited by the newspaper said that retaining the adviser was "increasingly" looking as a "sign of weakness".
