Humanosity says….it’s no surprise to find out that Boris Johnson’s key adviser Dominic Cummings is at the heart of plans to use data from the government’s online services portal in the build up to Brexit. We can only guess that that data would be extremely useful to the Tories in the run up to the Dec 12th election.
According to reporting by Buzzfeed
In a move that has alarmed Whitehall officials, the prime minister has instructed departments to share data they collect about usage of the GOV.UK portal so that it can feed into preparations for leaving the European Union at the end of next month.
The reporting goes on to state that the information being sought will come from the millions of users of the GOV.UK portal through which citizens can access services like Universal Credit
Dominic Cummings, the prime minister’s chief adviser, emailed senior officials instructing them to make sure that ministers, department heads and political aides know that the instruction is “TOP PRIORITY”, according to leaked government documents.
Even though Johnson has claimed that he wants to revolutionise the governments digital services offering such detailed information would be extremely valuable in any upcoming election.
