Dave’s New Eurosceptic Trade Minister

The smallest of mini-reshuffles announced at PMQs, with BT chief executive Ian Livingston replacing Stephen Green in December. Livingston will be trading his £9.1 million pay package, chauffeur rides to work and holidays to Martha’s Vineyard for a seat in the House of Lords. He is hated by the Communication Workers Union, though one detail will please the Tory backbenches in particular:

According to the This is Money back in 2008:

“His commute now is by chauffeur-driven car. He is picked up at 6am for delivery to BT’s HQ near St Paul’s at 6.40am. He eschews the business lunch and tries to avoid all but the most important of evening engagements. He will do business breakfasts ‘so long as they start promptly at 7.30am'”

He’s in for a surprise moving to the public sector…

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
