DOMINIC Cummings has said he has “not offered to resign” and has “not considered it”.
Boris Johnson’s top aide denied he had broken the “spirit” of the rules by travelling 250 miles to his parents’ house during lockdown and said he had not offered his resignation to the Prime Minister.
He said: “No, I have not offered to resign. I have not considered it.
“I think it’s reasonable to say that other people would have behaved differently, in different ways, in this whole situation.
“But as I stress I was trying to balance lots of competing things.”
He said he could not have remained in an isolated cottage for weeks afterwards because he was involved in vital work in Downing Street.
“I thought that if I could return to work then I should seek to return to work”, he said, and took “expert medical advice” before doing so.
