PM must sack Sabisky and curb Cummings’ power to appoint and sack

Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey has urged the Prime Minister to “put an end to the offence caused and sack Andrew Sabisky” and called for Dominic Cummings’ power to appoint and sack at will be curbed.

The call follows Downing Street’s refusal to say whether Boris Johnson agrees with an adviser, recruited by Dominic Cummings, who suggested black people were mentally inferior and advocated compulsory contraception to prevent a “permanent underclass”.

Acting Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “When you have a Prime Minister who has referred to people as ‘picaninnies’ with ‘watermelon smiles’, it is sadly no surprise that Boris Johnson has signed off on Dominic Cummings recruiting someone with such extreme and offensive views.

“This Conservative Government is a national embarrassment. By giving Dominic Cummings such power and then failing to control him, Boris Johnson is revealing who really is in charge.

“The Prime Minister must do the right thing and put an end to the offense caused and sack Andrew Sabisky. He must also make crystal clear why he signed off on this appointment and curb Dominic Cummings’ power to appoint and sack at will.”
