Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, took the unusual step today of pre-empting a potential accusation that might come the government’s way should it be proven that it lied about Dominic Cummings’ movements over the Easter period.
The PM, who at times looked and sounded flustered, told assembled reporters:
“Firstly, I wanted to say to the people of our great nation that, to the best of my knowledge, we have been completely truthful when describing Dominic Cummings’ visit to the north east.”
He went on:
“In the event that we have not been completely truthful, and I hasten to add that I’m fairly certain that we’ve been pretty truthful overall, then it does not necessarily mean that we lied about Brexit. Just because we are effectively the same group of individuals that pitched the positives of Brexit to the Great British public, it doesn’t automatically follow that we lied about that too… if of course we lied about Dominic Cummings… which, to the best of my knowledge, we didn’t.”
