    Of course, she’s managed to decrease cheese exports. So fails even on her own terms. Failing upwards. We’re being run by actual clowns.

    Nadine is a direct “shite sponge” replacement for Gav Williamson.

    Her role is to absorb flack for the glorious leader.

    Mad Nad is now culture secretary

    She got herself into a right twist over on Twitter earlier with the revelation that she allows staff and interns use of her password to log into her computer. Presumably having never heard of shared mailboxes.

    Honestly, if I did that at my workplace it’d be a major breach of security but apparently data protection rules are for the little people, not MPs…

    Colleagues uni mate works at dfit, she says Truss was a car crash and genuinely as dim as you think

    Fair play to her for falling upwards tho!

    Dorries appointment makes total sense, perfect for the imaginary culture war, shows how that Johnson has no real policies & will be relying on brexit/nationalism for the next election

    Yep, more spitfires and Churchill statues.

    I used to read those little war comics as a kid and loved the war films of the 70’s but oddly don’t seem to have the same fetish that these numpties share.(Probably due to reading that subversive 2000AD as well)

    Find bandwagon and jump on.

    Same for me. 2000AD should have been studied at school.

    So, Raab gets to be Deputy PM, a position last handed to some-one as a consolation prize for being Nick Clegg, essentially just because he was so bad his last job that he was replaced by Liz Truss…

    genuinely baffling

    Premier Icon kelvin
    Full Member

    He already had that role, just not the title. It was Raab that stepped into Johnson’s shoes when he was ill. He looked so out of depth as it happens.

    Premier Icon nickc
    Full Member

    Yeah, but Johnson is directly rewarding failure…Even some-one as slow witted as him can see that that’s not anyway to “run a country” it’s stupid.

    Imagine if I said to my head of reception. “Oh, you appear to shit at this job, I’ll move you sideways to head of nursing…” Madness.

    Johnson promotes idiots for a lot or reasons – they are ideological sound, loyal, popular with Tory voters, and because they are idiots and won’t threaten him. Raab is the ideal man for his second in command on those last grounds. Gove also no threat as he is personally odious even Tories hate him. He is no doubt regretting promoting Sunak, I suspect he underestimated his competence (lets not go into why) and we will see him phased out soon enough.

    Premier Icon binners
    Full Member

    Yeah, Sunak was meant to be an obedient drone, put there to rubber stamp anything Boris said. He’s since got ideas above his station, so he’ll be gone as soon as Boris can reasonably get away with it.

    But right now he’s the only cabinet member (including the PM) who looks capable of finding his own arse using both hands, so he’s safe.

    Its going to be interesting to see the reaction to foreign dignitaries when faced with pressing issues of international diplomacy to be greeted by the intellectual colossus that is Liz Truss

    Premier Icon thepodge

    Other than perhaps Raab, I imagine Boris is thinking instead of him being better, he could make people above him perform worse which in turn will push him up the list. It was touched on in the Brexit thread, instead of improving yourself you damage others to level the playing field.

    The net approval rating for Liz Truss is terrifying.

    ConservativeHome though. I mean, I’m amazed that Rees-Mogg scored so low.

    The net approval rating for Liz Truss is terrifying.

    It is odd. At most I thought it would be meh. Is she really active in tory social circles or with lots of local constituencies so they see more of her (although I am not sure that should help).

    Premier Icon nickc

    The low approval for Patel is also weird, I thought she was supposed to be popular?

    Premier Icon BruceWee
    Free Member

    The puzzling thing is why is Priti Patel’s rating so low. You can see she really wants to drown refugees with her own hands beneath the cliffs of Dover so you would think that’s the kind of thing the Tory voters would lap up.

    Premier Icon binners
    Full Member

    Nobody fills the Tory member with such conflict and confusion as Priti Patel

    She’s utterly heartless, totally devoid of a single shred of humanity, compassion or empathy and would happily nuke refugees and benefits scroungers if they’d let her, but theres an obvious problem which they just can’t overcome….

    Liz Truss

    Oh dear god.

    She’s the person representing Britain as foreign secretary?

    The woman is a walking container of stupid with leaks in. Wherever she goes it just falls out.

    No surprise there, after all anyone competent in a cabinet post would make Johnson look bad.

    The puzzling thing is why is Priti Patel’s rating so low

    Probably because there’s a large number of people who’ve worked with her and know her who actively despise her. Her historic work for big alcohol and big tobacco are as irksome to the puritanical wing of the Tory party as they are to the political left. Oh, then there’s this account of her early PR career.

    Idiotic isn’t it? The BBC is by any standard a global success, folk watch our sport in the millions, buy the telly programmes we create and listen to the music we make, but the Tories put a clown in charge just “to own the Libs”

    Now correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought being an author could be a full time job.

    How on earth does she find the time to be the minister for victorian attitudes to sexual orientation?

    There’s a difference between carefully crafting sentences and the literary equivalent of pebble-dashing a sheet of A4 after consuming a bag of peanuts and six cans of Guinness, which would also seem to be her approach to expressing an opinion on anything.
