I've wondered what Dominic Cummings is trying to achieve with his recent attacks on Downing Street. That's not to say he's wrong, but he's telling us what we already know: the government failed with their Covid response and a lot of the cabinet are useless. It's hardly news to us. So it came over merely as petty revenge from someone who lost his job.
However, thanks to an article on the BBC, I can now see what he's after:
Mr Cummings published the alleged leaks on Substack, an online platform that allows people to charge for newsletters.
He has said he plans to charge subscribers for insider information on subjects other than the pandemic.
It makes more sense now.
