Oh My Ghosh

After various rows at the Home Office and UK Border Agency Dame Helen Ghosh departed the Civil Service for the National Trust. In a great scoop by the Standard, it seems she’s been letting off some steam with her new found freedom:

“Women are being frozen out of an “Old Etonian clique” around David Cameron, one of Whitehall’s most senior figures has explosively claimed. Dame Helen Ghosh said the Prime Minister surrounded himself with a male-dominated “network of friends”, including members of the notorious Bullingdon Club at Oxford University, that was “difficult” for women politicians to penetrate.”

Nothing to do with the fact that she was blocked from promotion to the most senior level of the civil service, pipped to the post by Sir Bob Kerslake of course. Revenge is better served subtly…

Quote of the Day

Jacob Rees-Mogg on Theresa May

“There comes a point at which the policy and the individual become so intimately connected that it would be very hard to carry on supporting the person who is promoting this policy.”
