Dorries names Michael Gove as a major manipulator in the shadows – the same Gove celebrated this week by Jordan Peterson’s controlled opposition front called ARC. The UK, as elsewhere, is a ONE-PARTY state. It’s called ‘democracy’.
My intention when I started to research this book was to tell the story of how Boris Johnson was ousted from power.
Instead, what I uncovered was a small group of men, most of them unelected and some totally unknown outside of a tight Westminster bubble, who have been operating at the heart of the Conservative Party over the past 25 years and controlling its destiny.
They are, I can reveal, former Downing Street adviser Dominic Cummings, Tory Party apparatchik Dougie Smith and secretary of state Michael Gove, plus the most mysterious individual of all, a character we shall have to call ‘Dr No’, who wields enormous influence, whom everyone was scared of, though his name is never mentioned.
All too often it is their hand on the levers which raise ministers up and drop them back down — even if they are sitting prime ministers with an 80-seat majority, as Boris was. They also brought down Iain Duncan Smith as party leader, created havoc for Theresa May and undermined Liz Truss.
As one top-level contact told me: ‘For them, it’s not about democracy, or the wishes of the people; it’s about the decisions of a powerful, privileged and controlling few. They are the power and the throne, with an entire network singing to their tune.’
