Good point, take them out of having to pay tax.

Yes. Hard to rate him properly but he wasn't irredeemably stupid or nasty unlike Cruella De Patel, Raab or Loathsome for 3 examples.

Javid wasn't a Muslim, best to get your facts straight before looking like an idiot.

Even more of a token then.

At least Cummings has hand selected his next little b1tch to replace him

Sunak’s obviously well liked by Johnson - got a prominent role in the GE campaign despite being an MP for fewer than five years - but a prominent promotion this early on is still a surprise.

Non-practising, but certainly culturally a Muslim and depending on your definition of ethnicity, could be classified as an ethnic Muslim.

Best to think things through before trying to score points.

Soul likes to make a prat of himself when he can no longer twist into any further knots to defend the Tories.

Reshuffle coming soon isn't there...

Stories of Cummings bullying Javid...

See how long his replacement lasts....Claire Perry moaning too of harsh treatment.

Figures..

Well liked because he’ll basically just follow orders? I still remember when all the Tory Leadership candidates agreed to Javid’s enquiry on Islamaphobia. Halcyon days!

I once splashed Rolf Harris with a puddle of water as a kid outside a shopping centre. Must have sensed something wasn't quite right about the guy.
He gave me an evil stare from memory... followed by an awkward 'laugh'. Splashing puddles was the 'theme of the week' at the time. I'd had lots of practise in the playground and I was deadly accurate. Well I definitely got him below the knees. Maybe I'm to blame for his evil behaviour?
He wasn’t into the kids splashing it all over him then

In fairness the new Chancellor should realise he is in a very strong position....For a guy labelled rightly as a racist it would look terrible to lose two BAME MPs from the second most important position in the Country....

Tokenism or not the new guy is pretty safe to exert his own personality to the role..

For now..

The only time Sunak is going to be exerting anything is when he feels Cummings flex the fingers of the hand up his ass.

Perhaps, though there’s a great many who could do just the same, or possibly being prepared as a future leader of the Tory Party.

Yes no doubt his predicted passive acquiescence is part of his appeal..

Sadly he has more bargaining scope than he realises.

Just making sure all you UK voters are comfortable with Johnson accepting a £15,000 gift from a donor for his accommodation on his exclusive Caribbean island holiday while complaining about "elites" running the EU.

Honestly, the UK public are moronic.

One question I have about the reshuffle: now that DExEU has been disbanded, who's responsible for negotiating our future relationship with the EU? The Foreign Office? Department for International Trade? Number 10?

It will presumably be the Department for International Trade.

See how long this Sabisky piece of trash lasts...

Though crapping on black people and thinking of novel ways to stop Working class Ladies from procreating will no doubt play well with Johnson and his fans.

However even by Cummings standards this guy is extreme.

What could possibly go wrong when a government with such strong screening processes for its weirdo special advisors is in charge?

Twitter/Facebook Archives appear to be the most prevalent screening processes. So have no fear Bam. The Social Media historians are on it! OK
