Russian opposition figurehead Alexei Navalny has tricked Brexit-mastermind Dominic Cummings into admitting that he was not 'going for an eye test' when breaching his COVID isolation earlier this year. "I just love castles," he revealed.
Navalny extracted the confession from Cummings - UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's former chief advisor - during a series of prank phone calls, exclusively leaked to Le Chou.
Cummings took little cajoling and immediately fessed up to the crime, reportedly confident in the knowledge that there will be no punishment whatsoever, in line with UK government official policy.
Russia's opposition icon - a bitter rival of Vladimir Putin who was nearly killed by nerve agent poisoning - also asked for some tips from Cummings about fixing referendums to get the desired result. However, the recording cuts out at that point.
