TalkRADIO host Mark Dolan delivered a powerful monologue against Dominic Cummings where he brutally put down the former chief aide in a tirade of abuse and put-downs. Mr Dolan branded Mr Cummings an “egomaniac” and said he was on the “wrong side of history” as he defended the Government against the advisor’s allegations. Mr Cummings gave evidence at a joint parliament committee on the Government’s handling of the pandemic where he alleged tens of thousands would not have died if certain decisions were made.
Speaking on his evening show, Mr Dolan wasted no time opening up his programme with a diatribe against Mr Cummings.
He said: “Prize numpty Dominic Cummings has had his 15 minutes of fame addressing MPs today, a year on from his unhinged one-man show in the Rose Garden of Downing Street.
“The conclusions from both events are the same, Big Bad Dom is an intemperate egomaniac that’s out for himself.
“And what an unedifying spectacle it was last year as he used the backdrop of the greatest political residence in history, No10 Downing Street, to make excuses for his ill-judged sight test in Barnard castle.
“He showed the prime minister blatant disregard by holding that press conference effectively punishing the PM for his loyalty.
“Roll on a year and Big Bad Dom is at it again although the boy has now cried wolf too many times.
“This supposedly masterful spin doctor has been tweeting frantically in the last few days and has given most of the so-called Bombshell information to the press in the last 24 hours.
“It has meant that today has been a damp squib and is only illuminating in one surprising way that Boris Johnson is wiser than he’s given credit for, it turns out that during his stint at No10 Cummings was a relentless prophet of dharma.

“He was one of the architects of the government’s damaging overreaction to what is a nasty virus, not the bubonic plague.”
Mr Dolan then continued his rant stating Mr Cummings would have wanted to implement a long lockdown if he had his way which would have had a detrimental effect on mental health and the economy.
The radio host also pointed out Mr Cummings accused Prime Minister Boris Johnson of not implementing lockdowns because the PM believed the virus was only killing “80-year-olds”.
Mr Dolan raged it was “a fact” that COVID-19 was more fatal to elderly people and mocked the former aide for his uninspiring revelation.

Labour Deputy Leader Angela Rayner said it was an “abhorrent” thing for a prime minister to say during Prime Minister’s Questions.
Amid his allegations, Mr Cummings pushed for an inquiry into the coronavirus be pushed forward as he feared evidence may “go astray” if it is massively delayed.
Mr Cummings also attacked Health Secretary Matt Hancock stating his 100,000 tests a day pledge was “stupid”.
He added Mr Johnson was considering sacking Mr Hancock at the beginning of the pandemic as there were “15 to 20” times he could have been.
No10 refused to comment on the claims but said the two men “worked closely” during the pandemic.
