In the late 80's the UK government was still designing benefits systems will two digit years and a hard-coded century rollover date - I bet that ended well

More nonsense from the government:

Quote:
Sajid Javid admitted frictionless trade with the EU would be "over" but said that Britain would have a "better future".
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51460315

Can someone please explain to me how having a worse trade deal with our largest trading partner, including border and customs checks and having trade deals which at best are the EU deals rolled over will somehow make things better ?

Well, it got him into #11 and kept the Tories in power with a PM willing to promote anyone who'll support him so Javid gets a job he couldn't have dreamed of in saner times, doubtless high paying speaking engagements will flood in, and directorships and those lovely non-exec positions where you might get paid more than some people earn full time for a couple of hours a month and a quiet word in the right ear from time to time, not to mentio.....

Wait, sorry! You meant 'better for the country' didn't you? My bad..

Boris is 'reshuffling' his cabinet today.

Northern Ireland Secretary Julian Smith and Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom are out and Attorney General Geoffrey Cox has resigned.

Other early casualties are Housing Minister Esther McVey and Environment Secretary Theresa Villiers.

Cox was asked to resign by Boris apparently.

Quote:
In a statement confirming his resignation as the government's most senior law officer, Mr Cox said: "I have been truly privileged to have served as attorney general during the recent turbulent political times."

Known for his booming delivery and his legal advice that effectively scuppered Theresa May's Brexit deal in March last year, he said he had been asked to resign by the prime minister.

Javid gone. Resigned as condition of him remaining was to replace his own advisors with ones appointed by No. 10.

Oh, this is a bit more exciting than it was looking first thing.

Considering I thought we were scraping the bottom of the barrel with Javid, I do wonder who the next Chancellor will be.

One thing to keep in mind, Javid has bailed from every job he held in Banking when it was about to go tits up. His last position at Deutsche Bank being a case in point. Maybe he realised how big a mess this is going to be and he doesn’t want to be involved.

The salmon here also tastes even better and fresher.

He went for the same reason as Javid: he was someone who stood his corner.

Look at his replacement (his ex-junior), Rishi Sunak, a yes man if there ever was one: voted 'yes' to May's Brexit every time.

It will stick in Javid's craw being replaced by his once junior whom he patronised.

I have no sympathy at all for Sajid Javid: a despicable little man with a head like a bowling ball. Simply revoking people's citizenship and leaving them stateless was disgusting.

I don't think it'll be a far right dictatorship. Instead it'll be more likely to be a libertarian kleptocracy.

From wiki, at least Rishi Sunak seems to have firm business/finance skills to take over as Chancellor of the Exchequer:

Quote:
Born in Southampton, Hampshire to an Indian Punjabi family, his early education was at Winchester College. Sunak subsequently studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Lincoln College, Oxford, and later gained an MBA from Stanford University as a Fulbright scholar. After graduating he worked for investment bank Goldman Sachs, and later as a partner at the hedge fund management firm The Children's Investment Fund Management.
Mind you, having been born to an Indian Punjabi family', let's hope he doesn't get his British citizenship revoked any time soon and 'sent back to where he came from' as seems to be the latest hobby of the Home Office headed by arch anti-immigrant (more anti-immigrant than than the most xenophobic of xenophobe far-right infiltatrated Tories, including Tommy Robinson) Priti Awful Patel.

You can see why Johnson could be worried about having someone competent around him, the comparison is unlikely to be flattering.

Wow, the brexiteers are going to be furious. Recall how they got in a total frenzy about 'unelected' Brussels bureaucrats?
They will be apoplectic when they find out the UK chancellor has been kicked out by an unelected bureaucrat for not allowing other unelected bureaucrats to make all the decisions the chancellor is supposed to make.

Polly Toynbee in the GRAUNIAD:

Quote:
Johnson’s choice of pipsqueaks and placemen, yes-women and yellow bellies is the most under-brained, third-rate cabinet in living memory. The three great offices of state are held by those who pose no threat because they owe their unmerited promotion to the prime minister alone. A weak chancellor will curb Treasury interference with whatever headline-pleasers the prime minister has in mind.
The GRAUNIAD no lik-ee.

Putting no.11, the Treasury under the control of no 10 (read Dominic 'Swivel-Eyed' Cummings) not only breaches ethics of guarding against conflict of interest and the Chancellor's right to be of impartial opinion to the government's (as is the Attorney General's office) but shows a naked grab for totalitarian power.

The new AG, Suella Braverman is a rabid opponent of the power of High Court judges and her briefing is to effectively castrate the judiciary from objectively overseeing the constitution and laws are upheld, quite independently of the government.

Watch as the SUN and DAILY MAIL descend into a mad hero-worship of the new uber master, Boris Johnson.

This would be less horrendous if either Johnson or Cummings were remotely competent. They both have egos that greatly exceed their abilities.

From Facebook,

Leavers are always harking back to WWII and how they won.

Which is correct as both needed Russia.
