Good to see Johnson's cabal keeping up Trump's fine tradition of right-wing high cabinet turnover. You just can't get the staff huh... when you're drawing from a pitifully small pool of like-minded menials

Brilliant!

I've not been keeping up with the thread, but I've noticed the Telegraph has started being a bit anti-Johnson, going on about what he's up to not being real Tory policies.

Javid is the shortest-serving Chancellor in 50 years, in post for less than seven months.

I hear Martin Bormann is to come back from the dead and get a position in the new cabinet.

They probably are especially angry about HS2.

Anyone who has ever stood up to Cummings or said a bad word about no deal Brexit is off.

They're all turning against him now, some pretty strong language in reports of purges, culls and so on.

Chancellor resigns rather than bow to Cummings
Johnson sacks five cabinet ministers in purge

Quote from: The Express
Sajid Javid RESIGNS as Chancellor as Boris Johnson takes axe to Cabinet
SAJID JAVID has resigned from Cabinet today in a major blow to Boris Johnson's reshuffle plans.

Quote from: The Daily Telegraph
Sajid Javid resigns after Boris Johnson orders cull of treasury advisers
Javid previously expressed anger at treatment of aide

Quote from: The Guardian

Remember how a few months ago in another thread I (jokingly) suggested that we'd be seeing Cummings walking into number 10 as PM?

Hopefully I won't be right about that in the same way I was right about the Schofield thread going full paedo...

Heh. Rees-Mogg only found out about Javid while at the dispatch box, when a Labour MP asked his opinion on the resignation.

Rishi Sunak, the new Chancellor:

https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/25428/rishi_sunak/richmond_%28yorks%29/votes

Voted for
a reduction in spending on welfare benefits (on 23 occasions)
more restrictive regulation of trade union activity
reducing capital gains tax
reducing the rate of corporation tax
the bedroom tax
raising the threshold at which people start to pay income tax (seems a bit out of character, this one)

Voted against
paying higher benefits over longer periods for those unable to work due to illness or disability
higher taxes on banks
implementing a series of proposals intended to reduce tax avoidance and evasion
requiring multinational enterprises to publish a country by country tax strategy including information on their attitude to tax planning
giving the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority duties to combat abusive tax avoidance arrangements, including by ascertaining and recording the beneficial ownership of trusts

What exactly is it about the human condition that makes it desire to be ruled over and mistreated? To actively make decisions to make the powerful even more powerful and the less powerful even less powerful?

It goes against common sense doesn't it?

I don't know, voting to make the powerful more powerful makes perfect sense if, like Rishi Sunak, you are a former hedge fund manager and have a billionaire father-in-law.

Get people thinking that the higher ups are their through their own endeavor and worthy of their positions or even their by divine providence. Have these people as symbols of what you could strive for and they are opportunities for you.

However; those people below you. They are the threat to you. They want to climb and improve; but hey they aren't worthy deserving people and will go to devious ways to climb the greasy pole and kick you down as they do it. Keep these people down and your place in the lower-middle reaches will be safe.

You forgot to say that the Tories are colour-blind.

The only colour that matters is the colour of your money.

So Cimmings has got rid of the ones who aren't totally loyal to him and his weirdo far-right gang, and he's also had a pruge of some of the terminally useless and thick, like McVey*

Is Williamson still Education Secretary?

Saw Rishi being blooded outside the treasury whilst i was feeding the pelican yesterday afternoon. Burly guy holding him by the neck whilst Cummings jabbed a finger at him. I tried to intervene but an officer of the law told me “no feeding the pelicans mate, move along”

I suppose replacing an ex Deutsche Bank chancellor with a Goldman Sachs one reflects the UK turning away from Europe and looking to the USA. Or something.

Admittedly it's little more than removing a single polyp from a much larger mass.
