Divided they rule: Britain’s socially distanced Cabinet
SCHOOLCHILDREN weren’t the only ones returning after a long absence yesterday – the Cabinet were back at work for the first time in six weeks.
Boris Johnson and his ministers held socially-distanced discussions at the Foreign
Office, where there is more space than the Cabinet Room at 10 Downing Street where they normally meet.
Following the talks at a table
that stretched round all four edges of the Locarno Suite, the ministers posed for a photograph – while taking care still to keep apart – in the courtyard. Pictured from left to right are: Michael Gove, Natalie Evans. Mark Sedwill (civil service chief). Gavin Williamson, Priti Patel, Suella Braverman, Alister Jack, Alok Sharma,
Dominic Raab, Robert Jenrick, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Matt Hancock, Boris Johnson, Grant Shapps, Liz Truss, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, Brandon Lewis, Rishi Sunak,
Amanda Milling, Therese Coffey, Simon Hart, Stephen Barclay, Robert Buckland, Mark Spencer, George Eustice, Oliver Dowden and Ben Wallace.
