Let’s have a cab­i­net of all the tal­ents

The Guardian - - LETTERS | BREXIT -

It is now clear Mrs May is only act­ing as a front for the Brex­i­teers. So why not place the real pow­ers on the throne? The fol­low­ing cab­i­net would re­flect the present pol­icy: prime min­is­ter, Boris John­son; chan­cel­lor, Lord Law­son; home sec­re­tary, An­drea Lead­som (de­moted by May); for­eign sec­re­tary, David Davis; lord chan­cel­lor, Bill Cash; de­fence, Penny Mor­daunt; work and pen­sions, Iain Dun­can Smith (sacked by Cameron); health, Liam Fox (sacked by Cameron); leader of the house, Bernard Jenkin; ed­u­ca­tion, Michael Gove (de­moted by Cameron); leader of the Lords, Matt Ri­d­ley (for­mer chair, North­ern Rock); trans­port, Chris Grayling; busi­ness, Ja­cob Rees-Mogg; North­ern Ire­land, Theresa Vil­liers (sacked by Cameron); Defra, Owen Pater­son (sacked by Cameron); com­mu­ni­ties, Priti Pa­tel (sacked by May); Wales, Stephen Crabb (sacked by May); duchy of Lan­caster, John Red­wood; cul­ture, John Whit­ting­dale (sacked by Cameron); am­bas­sador in Wash­ing­ton, Nigel Farage. It would be in­ter­est­ing to see what as­sess­ments the mar­kets would make of this gov­ern­ment of all the tal­ents. Chris Hask­ins House of Lords
