Boris Johnson’s alleged WhatsApp messages have been leaked by Dominic Cummings.
One of the screenshots allegedly shows the Prime Minister calling the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, ‘totally f*****g hopeless’ after Mr Cummings explained COVID-19 testing was on the increase over in the US and that the UK was falling behind.
The former No.10 advisor claims that he exchanged the texts with Mr Johnson on March 27, 2020, when the UK was placed into its first coronavirus lockdown.

His message reads: “US has gone from 2,200 tests a fortnight ago to 27,000 a week ago to 100,000 yesterday.
“This is what we said we should do.
“Instead we are still stuck on about 5,000-7,000 and Hancock [is] saying today he’s ‘sceptical’ about getting to 10,000 by Monday which he said would ‘definitely’ happen on Tuesday.
“This means tens of thousands of NHS staff aren’t at work over the next critical three weeks – apart from my earlier point re: testing being integral to escape plan…”
The Prime Minister allegedly replied: “Totally f***ing hopeless.”
Cummings has shared screenshots of the alleged messages on Twitter.
It comes days after he insisted Hancock be ‘removed’ from his role as Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.
Sharing his thoughts on Substack, he said: “Hancock continues to have direct responsibility for things like dealing with variants and care homes. Having such a secretary of state in a key role is guaranteed disaster. It is urgent for public safety that he is removed.”
Currently, Downing Street and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) haven’t commented on the allegations.
