His move identifies a man who has been behind the scenes since Johnson became prime minister on July 24, but has an important role – senior adviser and de facto head of staff Dominic Cummings. Cummings, the architect of the ‘Leave Vote’ campaign in the 2016 Brexit referendum, publicly says less. So far, two sources have worked with him on the ballot, with his essays, blogs, and commentary reports from insiders over the past few years advancing rapidly and suggesting a policy of bypassing others in pursuit of a goal.
Two sources, one supporter and one critic, say that a no-deal Brexit threat is a plan designed to force Cummings to force the EU’s departure to compromise on the agreement agreed by Johnson’s predecessor Theresa May, and Fault pins on the block can be reach- pied if a new compromise is made.
The parliament rejected the deal because some MPs feared it could tie Britain to EU rules, which would no longer have any say, leading to Brexit in name only.
But Johnson’s insistence that the government, if it is, would pursue a no-deal Brexit, bet investors as the UK weakened the pound, already at risk of recession, could see a disruptive departure.
Making a splash with pledges for voters in search of Brexit is also part of Cumming’s plan, sources said, building on a similar strategy that dominated the UK’s 2016 referendum on continued EU membership.
The 47-year-old strategist, who did not respond to a request for comment for this article, has dismissed the claims of critics that they place ideology in the face of the interests of the economy or population.
[“I have never been a party person. I am not a Tory (patron), libertarian, ‘popular’ or anything else. I follow projects that I think are worthwhile,” Cummings hurried to himself on his blog Written about 2017.
His desire to move fast stems partly from a decision he later regretted, not taking time off after the victory of the Brexit referendum.
Cummings said in his blog that the government then “dragged it up” and told supporters not to worry about any [“permanent” commitments made by May’s government in the Brexit negotiations. He said those commitments are described as being “the product of the authorities and their nonsense ‘legal advice’.”
His driving philosophy – according to the article on his blog – seems to have taken over much of Britain’s system of government [the “thinking of the group,” incapable and ill-equipped to deal with the problems of the modern state.
“SOVIET PROPAGANDA TECHNIQUES”
On Monday, less than two weeks after Johnson took over from May, Johnson announced a cash injection of £ 1.8 billion ($ 2.2 billion) into the struggling public health system, which regularly triggered top concerns for voters. That
He had already promised to reduce purse strings on visits to Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North of England – areas hard hit by a decade-long spending squeeze by his Conservative Party.
The opposition Labor Party has questioned the intentions of Johnson’s spending promises, saying they are preparing to convene elections to strengthen their government’s majority.
The central message of the victorious [“Cummings masterminded quit” campaign was that there was an opportunity for a departure from the European Union [“take back control” and spend more at home.
It has led critics to question where the money will come from, especially if Britain leaves the European Union – its largest trading partner – without any agreement to ease the disruption.
Two sources said that Cummings knew that a [leave vote] slogan could cause an outcry during the Brexit campaign of sending money to the European Union instead of promising additional funding for healthcare, but that the plan was part of.
Public questioning of the figure of £ 350 million, which was illuminated in favor of a campaign bus, gave it prominence and instead got the message through doubt to voters whether Britain would have to spend that amount.
[“In a way, it is rather typical of the Cummings approach. It was effective but rather cynical,” said a source who has worked with, and is critical of, Cummings on the Leave campaign on condition of anonymity.
Cummings has rejected such characteristics. [“Some people now claim that it was cynical and we never intended to spend more on the NHS. Wrong,” “he said in another blog in early 2017.
He said that he had told Johnson at the time: “One day of being Prime Minister (Prime Minister) you should immediately announce an additional £ 100 million per week for the NHS, starting today and more will be coming – you being abnormal Should begin, a politician (politician) who actually delivers what they promise.]
He quoted Johnson as saying: “Absolutely. Absolutely. We should do it, no question, we will park our tanks everywhere.]
Cummings once recommended readers of his blog a book advising Russian President Vladimir Putin, Vladislav Surkov, who is an expert in diverting public attention from pressing issues with reading the political style outline of Russian political analysts say Political Theater.
Vote Leave and a close aide in the Cummings supporter said that now uses Johnson’s senior adviser [“Soviet propaganda technique” in pursuit of his goals.
That ally and one who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, Johnson’s threat to leave the EU without an agreement is a calculated strategy, not a reckless one.
[“I think it’s a high-risk strategy, but I think it’s probably right,” said one of Cummings’ former colleagues.
Cummings is likely to remain confidential and keep his team small as he did during the Vote Leave campaign.
His appointment was made to help him in power after comparisons with Steve Bannon’s leading role in the early days of US President Donald Trump’s administration, or before Martin Selmayr, Jean Claude Junker’s advisor and later he became European President Commission.
The entire team numbered 40 to 50 people at Britain’s Vote Leave campaign headquarters, while the Cummings core team amounted to 10 to 15 people, his former campaign aide said.
[“He was very hands-on. He had tight control over everything, he was very disciplined in his attitude and people, you know, just had to stay in line,” the source said.
It is a working system designed by Minister Michael Gov, another Brexit supporter who is now in charge of the no-deal scheme, working as an exclusive advisor in the Department of Education between 2011 and 2014.
After leaving this job, he sharply criticized the then Prime Minister David Cameron and others in the government. Cameron described Cummings as a “career psychopath.” In return, Cummings said of Cameron: “I don’t hate Cameron. I don’t respect him, which is different.
Cummings said in his blog that he kept three timetables to ensure Downing Street or others did not meet his plans by rail.
An implicit [“actual plan]” to share with at least 10 people; Another excluded sensitive matters but no 10 Downing Street, will not be shared with the Prime Minister’s Office; And removed everything necessary with a [“No 10 friendly” plan in order to keep them in the dark “.”
For many Brexit supporters, Cummings – as much as Johnson – is the man that can unlock the Brexit crisis, which has slowed economic growth and reduced Britain’s standing, and will deliver his departure on October 31.
But Cummings alienated many people while the Vote Leave campaign is underway, and there would be no friendship in a hurry for many of the negotiators or lawmakers in Brussels who have approved it, the critical Vote Leave source said.
Many MPs are also rallying around to try to find ways to prevent Britain from leaving the European Union without an agreement.
[“I think it could be a threat,” the source said. “… which he would end up with a sort of iron control over a whole range of people who would finally buckle down and work hard for him, but a whole lot of other people he needed to keep on board At a different cost. “
