SpAds in Numbers

spads-male-female2

With Guido’s SpAd list all but complete, our data bods have crunched the numbers to give you a statistical analysis of the government’s bag-carriers. More than two thirds of SpAds are men – that said, female representation among advisers is higher than in the Commons. 32% of SpAds are women compared to just 29% of MPs. 5% of SpAds are ethnic minority, which is below the 6% figure for MPs and is also an under-representation on a national scale. Plenty of diversity on the names front though – Richard, Rupert, Tim and Tom all feature prominently, not to mention Poppy, Lottie and Flora.

A government that works for everyone, especially Richard.

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.”
