Boris Johnson thought Covid was just "nature's way of dealing with old people", revealed in a shocking day of revelations at the Covid Inquiry.
A jam-packed evidence session on Halloween saw the former PM's adviser Dominic Cummings grilled for more than five hours. At the height of the pandemic, the senior aide sent WhatsApp messages to others in No10 criticising the "feral" and "useless f***ing pigs in charge" in the "terrifyingly s***" Cabinet.
Mr Cummings also savaged Matt Hancock, who he called a "proven liar". He said the former Health Secretary had no "f***ing serious testing in care homes" and said his "uselessness if still killing god knows how many".
He questioned how the Tory was at the head of the Department of Health as he pressed for him to be sacked from the role in a reshuffle, reports the Mirror.
