What is Andrew Sabisky’s Actual Job?

Amongst the three-day-long period of outrage from the media class over Andrew Sabisky’s hiring, the question of what his day-to-day ‘contractor’ role is within Downing Street remains shrouded in mystery.

The current rumour doing the rounds is that Sabisky is working on the Government’s defence review announced in Boris’s post-election Queen’s Speech.
