Breaking Alternative News:

Boris Johnson’s cabinet reshuffle, which triggered the shock resignation of Chancellor Sajid Javid, has provoked debate online over whether the UK PM’s chief adviser Dominic Cummings is in fact calling the shots in government.

What was billed as a ‘Valentine’s Day massacre’ reshuffle by some media outlets, turned out to be chaos for the UK government’s finance department, ahead of a March budget.

Javid’s resignation, due to his refusal to accept No 10’s request to sack his advisers, according to a number of media outlets, was the big name cabinet casualty on Thursday.

The 50-year-old politician’s exit comes with departures from several other high-profile ministers, including Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Julian Smith, Environment Secretary Theresa Villiers and Attorney General Geoffrey Cox.

The UK cabinet culling prompted accusations online that Johnson had “lost control,” with Ian Blackford, the SNP leader in Westminster, suggesting the PM had become “embroiled in an ego battle between his de-facto deputy Dominic Cummings” and Tory MPs like Javid.

One person, ostensibly agreeing with Blackford’s assessment, sarcastically tweeted: “Confirmed: Dominic Cummings has retained his position as Prime Minister.” Others posted comical videos and gifs in honor of “new emperor Dominic Cummings” as the perceived powerhouse within Johnson’s government.
