We keep being told it's not an issue with the budget but how the money is spent. By him. By him.

Well that was an incredibly Theresa May reshuffle wasn't it.

I particularly liked Grayling being given Green's post and then sacked within seconds.

Ha tremendous, I wonder if she truly understands what a shower of utter Civil Servant shite she has just inherited.

Greening quit when she was offered the role apparently, she obviously knew.

Whosever idea it was it's weak. That being said, I would find it odd for Theresa to publicly back him on Marr on Sunday only to then ask for his resignation on Monday.

I don't know how he felt he could been able to do the job once key stakeholders had voiced concerns about his credibility from the outset. It's not only a question of just powering through the criticism. He was already a marked man.

I’m sorry, when did it become acceptable to have someone in public office who is/was openly homophobic, has made misogynistic comments (frequently) and intimated that it’s a woman’s fault if she gets unwarranted attention from men?

I agree with you on some things Andy but you are getting more deluded by the day.

The Tories should never have been in this position and could have avoided it by appointing someone fit for the role.

I just recognise the reality of the fact that people in the past say things that are not ideal, and we're now in a world where that can be dug up in a whim and used for political point scoring. I don't recall Angela Rayner being so vocal about that muppet Jared O'Mara, because of course he's the right brand and it's the rank hypocrisy on both sides I dislike. Expecting a fully sanitised version of our public officials is unrealistic and we'll be heading down this slippery path I fear.

Also by your standards I'm fairly sure we'll all be barred from public office, which is probably for the best!

Don't forget calling special needs kids troglodytes, and grammar school kids a stain.

e: O'Mara was suspended as soon as that stuff came to light.

Suspension loses some of its meaning when it's perpetual - a la Livingstone.
And regardless of what Labour say, that stuff came to light long before he was elected. It was all over Guido for a start, but this is a separate discussion.

Last feb, well remembered I'm not sure i see the equivalence between a light-hearted suggestion that Ivanka fancied Trudeau and a light-hearted suggestion (giving Young the benefit of the doubt) that special needs children are sub-humans living in caves.

Public officials who are not "journalistic provocateurs" (aka a professional bellend), who are not fans of eugenics, who don't have a long history of misogyny or discrimination against the working class and the disabled is a very very very very very low bar.
