Grin and bear it: Being Home Secretary is like taking a poisoned chalice but Sajid Javid has accepted the job.

The man responsible for cocking up the Tory government’s response to the Grenfell Tower tragedy has been appointed as the new Home Secretary by flailing prime minister Theresa May.

Perhaps she hopes Sajid Javid will be as bad at restoring their rights to the Windrush Generation as he has been at restoring homes to the survivors of Grenfell.

How long did Theresa May say it would be before the Tories re-housed them? Three weeks?

And how long have most of them been in temporary accommodation? Nearly a year.


And what about his time as Business Secretary, when he ignored the advice of senior civil servant Edward Bell in order to keep granting export licences for weapons being sent to Saudi Arabia, despite allegations of war crimes in Yemen?

But when Tata announced it was selling its UK steelworks, Mr Javid was off on a jolly to Australia. And he spurned a crisis conference with Welsh Labour MPs to attend a business event organised by a right-wing American think tank instead.

We may conclude that this is a man who is happy to deal out destruction to foreigners while delivering destitution to people here in the UK.

There’s more:

And this is Theresa May’s choice to replace disgraced serial liar Amber Rudd.

Her record of appallingly bad decision-making continues unabated.

Was she looking for another human shield, rather than someone able to do the job?
