He was with a hard­core bloc of Re­mainer Min­is­ters dubbed The Break­fast Club af­ter the 1980s ‘Brat Pack’ movie that saw five trou­ble­some stu­dents forced into early morn­ing de­ten­tion by an un­pop­u­lar head teacher. Mr Gy­imah, who re­signed on Fri­day, tucked into eggs and ba­con at St Er­min’s Ho­tel – a favourite haunt of wartime spies – along with Cab­i­net Min­is­ters Greg Clark and David Gauke, and for­mer Trans­port Min­is­ter Jo John­son, who re­signed the week be­fore. They were also joined by Busi­ness Min­is­ter Mar­got James, who was yes­ter­day forced to clar­ify that she would not be the next to quit. ‘I fully in­tend to sup­port the deal the PM is putting to Par­lia­ment on De­cem­ber 11,’ she said.
