Boris Johnson’s top adviser Dominic Cummings has called on ‘weirdos’ to apply to work at No10

The ex Vote Leave boss said there are some profound problems at the core of how the British state makes decisions.

The 48-year-old, who has long dreamed of shaking up Whitehall, said: We do not have the sort of expertise supporting the PM and ministers that is needed.

To fix it, he asked for the help of unusual mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists”, unusual software developers and super-talented weirdos.

The people he is looking for to bring in big new ideas are some true wild cards, as well as artists, and people who never went to university and fought their way out of an appalling hell hole.

The aim of all the new hirings is to make his role largely redundant within a year or two, he added.

But he warned: Ill bin you within weeks if you dont fit dont complain later because I made it clear now.

The PMs senior adviser also revealed he is looking to hire his own personal assistant, whose workload will be extreme.

Mr Cummings said: You will not have weekday date nights, you will sacrifice many weekends frankly it will hard having a boy/girlfriend at all.

It will be exhausting but interesting and if you cut it you will be involved in things at the age of ~21 that most people never see.”

And he attacked what he dubbed the horrors of Human Resources, adding HR departments need a bonfire.

And he also lashed out at Westminster who talk a lot about diversity but they rarely mean true cognitive diversity.
