Andrew Mitchell Has Not Been Promoted

The master of his dark arts, Andrew Mitchell, may well have spun his way to a new job, but trying to package it as a promotion is a bit much – in fact it’s the total opposite. Going from the Secretary of State to Chief Whip means a £30,000 pay cut.* He’s also no longer a cabinet member, merely having attendance rights. It’s always nice to see a former banker reformed though…

*The Chief Whip is paid at Minister of State level.

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
