Tory MP Steve Baker breaks ranks to say Cummings 'must go' to save Boris’ government
Boris Johnson is under mounting pressure to sack Mr Cummings after it emerged he travelled to County Durham to self-isolate with his family during the lockdown.
And there are reports that the 48-year-old made a second trip to the North East despite social distancing rules.
Mr Baker, a prominent member of the 1922 Committee of backbench Tories, said Mr Cummings “must go”.
He tweeted: “It is intolerable that Boris’ government is losing so much political capital.
“Three changes are immediately required: 1 – Govt needs competitive expert advice 2 – Govt must insist on high software engineering standards 3 – Dominic Cummings must go.”
