It has taken Dominic Cummings less than two weeks to become everything he hates



“There is growing and justified contempt for Westminster ... Cameron, Miliband, and Clegg see only the flickering shadows of the news on their cave wall – they cannot see the real world behind them,” wrote Dominic Cummings in an opinion piece in The Times newspaper in 2014. He goes on to spell out, not for the first time or the last, how the civil service is programmed to fail and how politicians chase headlines over evidence-based policy.

“We should stop selecting leaders from a subset of Oxbridge egomaniacs with a humanities degree,” he adds with a rhetorical flourish that now serves as a kind of ballistic irony missile loaded with a fully self-owning warhead.

It has taken Cummings less than a fortnight to become the punchline of his own joke.
