Who?

14 Labour Rebels With Jobs

Clive Lewis, Jo Stevens, Dawn Butler, Tulip Siddiq and Rachael Maskell quit the Labour frontbench over the Article 50 vote – last night another 14 rebelled against Corbyn’s three line whip. They are:

Rosena Allin-Khan – Shadow Sports Minister

Kevin Brennan – Shadow Arts Minister

Lyn Brown – Shadow Policing Minister

Ruth Cadbury – Shadow Housing Minister

Thangam Debbonaire – Opposition whip

Vicky Foxcroft – Opposition whip

Dr Rupa Huq  – Shadow Crime Minister

Chi Onwurah – Shadow Industrial Strategy Minister

Stephen Pound – Shadow Northern Ireland Minister

Andy Slaughter – Shadow House Minister

Jeff Smith – Opposition whip

Catherine West – Shadow Foreign Affairs Minister

Alan Whitehead – Shadow Energy Minister

Daniel Zeichner – Shadow Transport Minister

If Jez is going to enforce his three line whip then a significant number of new appointments will have to be found…

Corbyn in the Words of His New Top Team

This is what Jeremy Corbyn’s new frontbench think of their leader, in their own words:

Sir Keir Starmer, new Shadow Brexit Secretary: “It is simply untenable to suggest that we can offer an effective opposition without a change of leader”

John Healey, new Shadow Secretary of State for Housing: “you are clearly not prepared to accept the special responsibility you have in acting to meet these challenges”

Nia Griffith: new Shadow Defence Secretary: “I do not feel you can… achieve unity”

Jo Stevens, new Shadow Welsh Secretary: “We cannot present ourselves as a government in waiting without leadership and a leadership team that commands the respect and support not only of members… but Labour voters and potential Labour voters too.”

Sarah Champion, new Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities“Jeremy’s position is no longer tenable if we’re to be effective”

Barbara Keeley, new Shadow Minister for Mental Health: “the current state of the party means we will not be able to mount an effective front bench opposition”

Sharon Hodgson, new Shadow Minister for Public Health: “I believe you have let down the many people who elected you in such large numbers to be our leader last summer. For this very same reason, I also believe that you will not be able to command the necessary support of the wider electorate… I do not think you can lead us into government.”

Jonathan Reynolds, new Shadow Economic Secretary to the Treasury: “I cannot in good conscience endorse the world view of Stop the War Coalition. The security and well-being of my constituents must always be my first consideration.”

Jack Dromey, new Shadow Minister for Labour: “We cannot fight back and win with you as leader.”

Chi Onwurah, new Shadow Minister for Industrial Strategy: “a combination of ineptitude and arrogance”

Emma Lewell-Buck, new Shadow Children’s Minister: “Jeremy Corbyn is one of the worst-performing leaders we’ve had in decades… we’re not going to win a General Election with him as leader.”

Kevin Brennan, new Shadow Minister for Arts: “I would not feel able to nominate or support you for leader… it would be dishonest of me to stay”

Jenny Chapman, new Shadow Brexit Minister: “Labour cannot win in Darlington with Jeremy as leader”

Roberta Blackman-Woods, new Shadow Minister for Local Government and Housing: “I no longer have confidence in you as a leader”

Louise Haigh, new Shadow Minister for the Digital Economy: “We are currently not able to fulfil the very basic, day-to-day operation as the Official Opposition in Parliament”

Pat Glass, new Shadow Minister for Transport: “the situation is untenable”

And now they’ve come crawling back…

New Transport PPS “Strongly Opposed” to HS2

VICTORIA PRENTIS

HS2 may have hit another rail bump. The new Transport PPS, Victoria Prentis, is “strongly opposed” to building the high-speed rail link. Prentis, whose picturesque rural constituency of Banbury would see HS2 run through its eastern edge, says on her website:

“While I recognise the importance of investment in our transport network, I am strongly opposed to the building of HS2. I will continue to oppose it in principle, as I do not think it represents value for money for our taxpayers, and that the environmental costs are too high.”

Prentis, who is neighbouring MP to both David Cameron and Andrea Leadsom, will be serving under John Hayes, who has previously spoken against holding a referendum for locals to decide on HS2. This is going to be a tough square to circle…

Home Secretary – Amber Rudd

Defence Secretary – Michael Fallon

Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union – David Davis

Secretary of State for International Trade – Liam Fox

Stephen Crabb to DWP

Downing Street promotes three Remainers…

Work and Pensions Secretary Runners and Riders

Stephen Crabb

The hirsute Welsh Secretary is on the rise and has been tipped by his delirious admirers as a possible future leader. Though Welsh elections are weeks away and Crabb has just made a massive balls up of the Wales Bill. He has the back story and is a Christian in the so-called ‘compassionate Conservative’ mould.

Priti Patel

If Cameron wants to placate the Eurosceptics then Priti could step up. She is however very close to IDS – note that intriguing line in his letter about “my team”. Does she share his concerns? She may see it as a poisoned chalice.

Anna Soubry

Super Soubs was being tipped by colleagues last night, she’s a competent media performer who could go out and defend unpopular cuts. A mid-ranking minister who has never made it to a full Cabinet post. Has a tendency to gaffe.

Rob Halfon

Fiercely loyal to Osborne and a leading ‘compassionate Conservative’. He has said he would never take a job if offered it because of his disability, though it would not be undeserved on merit. Has been in charge of attempts to rebrand the Tories as “the workers’ party”. Makes sense for a lot of reasons.

Matt Hancock

The minister for giving the government line could finally get the call up to a full Cabinet job. Would never knife his political master Osborne, which goes in his plus column. Has been nicknamed “Matt Hermaphrodite” by unkind ministerial colleagues. Why? “Because he’s both a c*** and a pr*ck.”

Mark Harper

A safe pair of hands, Harper knows the brief well having served as Minister for Disabled People, where he was responsible for PIP and ESA.

Greg Hands

What about someone from the Treasury? Hands is hugely loyal to Osborne and could lift the years of coldness between DWP and No. 11. Though if the job goes to Harper then Hands could become Chief Whip.

Boris Johnson

Boris is said to have been the most vocal opponent of tax credits at political cabinet, allies say he knows the brief. A senior Conservative source points out it would “solve a lot of problems”. BoJo’s name was doing the rounds among excitable Whitehall sources last night. Suspect he’ll be too busy washing his hair if the call comes.

Andrea Leadsom

Another rising Eurosceptic who is said to have desires on the leadership, Leadsom is in that rung of senior yet non-Cabinet level ministers from whom the next SoS could well come. Does Downing Street need an Outer?

Amber Rudd

Very close to Osborne, indeed his former PPS, Rudd has done solid good work at DECC and could step up. She did freeze in front of a hostile Question Time audience when challenged on welfare reform.

Liz Truss

Another name doing the rounds, she is another FoG (Friend of George) and will be up there if No. 10 wants a woman.

Sajid Javid

Certainly a reformer with vision. Yet another ultra-loyal Osborne ally. Though sticking him with the poisoned DWP chalice would hardly be much reward for him backing Remain.

Greg Clark

Another ultra-reliable technocrat who is a former Treasury minister and another ally of the Chancellor.

Michael Gove

IDS and Gove were the two ministers in the last parliament with reforming zeal. Gove subscribes to IDS’ moral mission of welfare revolution. Would solve the post-deal Euro-quagmire at Justice and mean the post goes to a Eurosceptic.

Realistically it could be any one of about 20 ministers…

Corbyn’s Reshuffle Ain’t Over Yet…

By Guido’s count the reshuffle has still not finished, Jezza has yet to find at least 5 junior replacement shadows for his frontbench:

Chuka Out

chuka petulent child

Chuka “petulant child” Umunna is next to be sacked by Corbyn:

“Whilst there is much on which Jeremy and I agree, there are a number of key points of difference on policy which I believe it would be dishonest to deny exist. If Jeremy’s clear victory yesterday demonstrated anything, it was a desire for politicians to be true to what they believe – I want to abide by this. Also, Jeremy should be free to appoint a Shadow Cabinet committed to implementing the policies on which he campaigned in the contest – I clearly had some differences in view on how we build a more equal, democratic, free and fair society.

Given these differences, not least on the European referendum, I would find it difficult to abide by the collective responsibility that comes with serving in the Shadow Cabinet. That is why Jeremy and I have agreed I can more effectively support his leadership from the backbenches.”

Will the last Shadow Cabinet member to leave please turn off the lights?

Corbyn Sacks Ivan Lewis

It begins… The first Blairite victim of the Corbyn Purge is Ivan Lewis:
