Dave Wants Sir Bob Kerslake Out

Looks like the PM has had enough of his panjandrum-in-chief Bob Kerslake. Sir Bob has been a constant brake on Civil Service reform, blocking Francis Maude’s attempts to give Secretaries of State greater powers to hire and fire Permanent Secretaries. His ill-advised Thatcher tribute that drew accusations of “prostituting high office” went down spectacularly badly as well. Then there was his decision to take away two privilege days – where civil servants get extra days off in addition to bank holidays – and add them to their leave. Just the sort of thing to test Number 10’s patience a step too far…
