Dominic Cummings' grip weakens as war breaks out in Johnson's ears

The play revolves around Boris Johnson’s advisers on Downing Street, not an episode of The West Wing, where Tudor’s King’s Wife conspires against her beloved. The fight for Johnson’s ear, which resigned its communications director Lee Kane on Wednesday night, is a fight against the government’s sense of political direction.

The role of Johnson’s fiance, Carrie Symonds, adds spice to the story of Cain’s downfall years later as the Prime Minister’s most loyal and effective aide. But Symonds, the former communications director of the Conservative Party, is a prolific political operator with a deep network of allies in the party and in the right-leaning media.

Cain’s problem arose when he came up with the idea of ​​presenting daily, televised, White House – style press briefings to replace one of two daily off – camera briefings for Westminster lobby reporters. Those who stand in front of such a daily meeting will be the face of the government and the most important political figures in the country.

Johnson was chosen for his role as former Guardian and ITV news journalist Allegra Stratton, who helped the Treasury burn the image of Rishi Sunak and become the most popular member of government. Opposing the appointment, Cain sought to prevent Stratton from entering directly with the Prime Minister.
