James said he found the psychology behind Mr Johnson's regime interesting, comparing it to a video game he used to play, where victim's souls were collected.

"You pressed X and inhaled the soul and for every soul you inhaled you grew in strength," he said.

He explained: "Every single human being he comes into contact with - whether he marries them, impregnates them, promotes them or promises to protect them - they all end up corrupted by him.

"They all end up worse off than they were before - whether they're left holding a baby, whether they're left in Iranian isolation or left licking their wounds in Dominic Cummings' case.

"Wherever it might be, just staring themselves in the mirror and wondering how it came to this, in the case of somebody perhaps like Kwasi Kwarteng, Matt Hancock or whatever poor soul gets sent out today to defend the indefensible."

It comes as the Prime Minister is under fire from politicians and the public alike over the latest in a series of Number 10 party allegations.

The "bring your own booze" party is said to have taken place in May 2020 - when Covid restrictions meant people could only meet in pairs outdoors.

James said: "Whatever [Mr Johnson] touches, whatever the opposite of a Midas touches, turns to soil.

"He seems to relish the collection of people, whether he gets you to surrender your body, to surrender your vote, or to surrender your dignity."
