BORIS Johnson allowed Brits die from Covid to save his political career, Dominic Cumming has sensationally claimed.

The former top No10 aide made the bombshell claims during his first TV interview since leaving Downing Street.

Speaking to the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg, Cummings said Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance both urged the PM to lockdown last September to stop a killer second wave, but Boris told them “no no no”.

He also revealed Whatsapps the PM sent last October in which the PM said he said he no longer “buys into all this NHS overwhelmed stuff”.

In yet another broadside against the PM, Cummungs said: “His attitude at that point [autumn 2020] was a weird mix of partly it’s all nonsense and lockdowns don’t work anyway and partly, well this is terrible but the people who are dying are essentially all over 80 and we can’t kill the economy just because of people dying over 80.”
