Do you think he's plotting something and will join/form some kind of anti-establishment group? I dount hell just disappear, for one he's too brainy to be idle, and of course he may want to 'get even' for disloyalty, depending on how personally he's taken Boris using him for the climb.

Or may he just spill something about Boris to papers, if he's more petty?

I think this is all being engineered. Boris will be next to go. They're avoiding the flak that'll come from Brexit next year.

Probably write a book about a naughty squirrel & a kind Princess who with the help of a blond scarecrow sorts the naughty squirrel out & he becomes a good squirrel.

He's been removed from that post but he will still be involved in some way, we just won't hear about it.

Don't worry.
There will be a sweet sweet cushy job lined up already.

Nepotism is strong in this party.

Said on the news at the weekend he was still working from home on the Moonshot.

I hope he gets to spend more time with his son, and I mean that in the nicest possible way.

I'd guess he's going to write an explosive, tell-all type memoir.

He'll do what other former political advisers do.
Get a job as another adviser somewhere or write political articles.

Retire on the money Boris is going to send him so he keeps his gob shut?

I can tell you one thing that will absolutely happen in his household. His wife will send out looooong exhales like smoke signals every time she stops and catches sight of The Anorak collecting dust on its peg in the front hall. This is not just WFH. This is DC WFH.
Clausewitz's On War is his wife's spiritual/self-help reading. You'd need Prussian military strategists telling you how to cope with him leaving mouldy tea cups around the house.

Professional Benedict Cumberbatch impersonator.

Write a blog. Probably wink

The book or talk to the papers. I'd prefer him to have to write a prison diary but am not hopeful. He will need money to pay for the security he will probably need as I don't doubt for one second that the death threats he referred to as part of the Booker Prize entry on Downing Street lawn were probably the only true bit of the story he told.

I heard he wants to be in charge of UKRI

Terrifying prospect.

Well a new research agency to be fair. But yeah, terrifying.

I don't think 'somewhere' is good enoughh for Dom. After being such a key figure in no.10 (unlike many 'regular' advisors) he'd want something exciting / relevant. UKRI sounds like that, though I no nothing of their current people.

Poster who said he's stll going to advise govt but unknnoen to anyone, I doubt it! he's angry.

If this was all set up, do you mean by Boris or those who want to dispose of Boris? I don't think Boris wants to go, esp now that there is an end in sight to covid.

Laurence Fox, exactly haha! He'd love to team up with Dom - but not the way round probably grin

I just wonder if he's capable of any significant 'revenge' or more interested in building his own new venture (might be alarming).

Crawl under a rock until what passes for his brain explodes, I hope.
