Michael Fallon has built up a reputation as a media ‘firefighter’ over the years – calming difficult situations – this morning he was the one dishing out the burns. First Alan Duncan was dismissed as a “junior minister”, more charitable than some of the other tributes he got in fairness, before Fallon went after Philip Hammond, saying he “probably deserves a rest”.
