The Theresa May Cabinet

Vote LeaveI have made no secret of my support for Andrea Leadsom so my comments on Mrs May’s Cabinet need to be seen in this context:


Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond  Remainer   A safe pair of hands

Foreign Secretary                   Boris Johnson        Leaver         A challenge for him

Home Secretary                      Amber Rudd          Remainer     Bloody rude in EU debate

Defence Secretary                   Michael Fallon       Remainer     Watch him

Brexit Secretary                       David Davies          Leaver         A good job for him and us

International Trade                Liam Fox                 Leaver         A good job for him and us

I have two hopes:

  • That Michael Gove has a job.  I would send him back to run education and to sort out “The Blob”.
  • That Gisela Stuart has a job.  This may be difficult, given she is a Labour MP, but I think we should find a way around that minor problem.
