Heywood Resigns for Health Reasons

Cabinet Secretary and head of the Civil Service Sir Jeremy Heywood has today announced that he is standing down on health grounds – he previously had a leave of absence to receive treatment for cancer. Guido was never a fan of Heywood but we wish him well. He has been offered a life peerage by the Prime Minister, who said in a statement that Sir Jeremy¬†“has made an enormous contribution to public life in our country and will be sorely missed.”

Guido wonders who will be his replacement? Hopefully not Olly Robbins….

UPDATE: Current acting Cabinet Secretary¬†Mark Sedwill will be Sir Jeremy’s permanent replacement. Nothing has changed…
