Hunt Announces First Cabinet Pick: Karen Bradley

Last night Jeremy Hunt told an audience in Northern Ireland that he would keep Karen Bradley as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. Bradley, a May loyalist, is widely understood to not be liked by the DUP. Frosty relations on that front are not wise when the current Tory-DUP majority in the Commons is just three votes. It’s also highly unusual to openly promise jobs in the middle of a campaign. Will Hunt be publicly appointing the rest of his fantasy cabinet over the next few weeks..?

Calamity Karen’s Grovelling Apology

Comprehensively calamitous Northern Ireland Secretary Karen Bradley has put out a grovelling apology statement after sparking an international incident with her astonishingly poorly judged comments about The Troubles yesterday. Bradley told the Commons that killings that “were at the hands of the military and police were not crimes” and “They were people acting under orders and under instruction and fulfilling their duties in a dignified and appropriate way.”

Bradley had to go to the Irish embassy for an emergency meeting with Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney last night, Coveney has now reported her grovelling apology back to the Dáil and Bradley will travel to Belfast tonight to personally apologise to families affected. Good job there’s nothing politically sensitive going on at the moment regarding Northern Ireland…

The just jaw dropping ignorance of the Northern Ireland Minister is stunning.

Calamity Karen’s Cup Kerfuffle

Northern Ireland Secretary Calamity Karen had a spot of bother spilling her glass of water across the table. Thankfully Shadow Northern Ireland Minister Stephen Pound was on hand with a tissue to squeeze spilled water back into the glass. Yum. Water calamity!

NI Assembly Members to have Pay Cut

Karen Bradley has “will take the steps necessary to reduce Assembly Members’ salaries” in light of their failure to form an executive. Northern Ireland now hasn’t had a government for two years. The pay reduction will take place in two stages, commencing in November.

Perhaps we could extend this new performance related pay to all politicians…
