Dominic Cummings showcased his inimitable style as he strode into Downing Street wearing low-slung jeans and trainers on Monday.

The former Vote Leave supremo set out his plans for a Downing Street shake-up in which maths and physics PhDs would mingle with ‘weirdos and misfits with odd skills’ and people who ‘fought their way out of appalling hell holes’.
The advert is a direct challenge to the civil service and Whitehall establishment which Mr Cummings has long criticised and which Mr Johnson plans to reform.
