Is Cleverly for the chop in coming Cabinet reshuffle – along with a lot of ladies?

James Cleverly: He was once described as “the Tories’ go-to eejit when they need someone to tweet absolute nonsense or defend the indefensible”. It seems they no longer feel the need to defend themselves in that way.

It seems James Cleverly’s time at the top is finally running out – and it can’t end soon enough, in This Writer’s view.

Mr Cleverly simply isn’t smart enough to hold a top job in government. Besides, with Boris Johnson as prime minister, we don’t need two idiots with their feet in their mouths at the same time.

Apparently, some think this is harsh treatment after Cleverly presided over a heavy defeat for the Labour Party – but that had very little to do with him.

It seems he’ll be replaced by expenses cheat Maria Miller, who disgraced herself in the Department for Work and Pensions before she disgraced herself over money. It may be that she has learned her lessons in the nearly-six-years since that happened; draw your own conclusions.

Also for the chop, it seems, are many of the women Johnson appointed to make himself look like an equal-opportunities boss, in the run-up to the election.

Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom, International Trade Secretary Liz Truss and welfare boss Therese Coffey (who made a fool of herself by saying food banks were a perfect way to deal with poverty) are apparently on the way out, with sexism apparently on the way back in.

It seems the only way Johnson can be described as supporting equal opportunities is negative:

Members of his own government are just as likely to get the bum’s rush as the rest of us.

    No tears for Coffey. Another in a long Tory line of nasty pieces of work. I wonder who will continue the tradition?
