Reshuffle: Boris Johnson fires Gavin Williamson as he rings cabinet changes


Boris Johnson has fired a string of cabinet ministers - and promoted new faces to replace them - in a major reshuffle.

The prime minister sacked under-fire Education Secretary Gavin Williamson and moved Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to the justice department.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Home Secretary Priti Patel keep their jobs.

But there are promotions for Liz Truss, who goes to the foreign office, and Nadine Dorries, who gets culture.

Downing Street said the aim of the reshuffle was to "put in place a strong and united team to build back better from the pandemic".

More moves are expected over the coming hours, as Mr Johnson seeks to fill vacant positions.

Ultimately, I don't think it really matters who fills these roles - and I don't think the majority of the public really care - they are just themselves 'pawns', figureheads to present to the public, I don't think these people really are 'in charge' of their ministerial departments.


But one thing you notice, its always the same people being shuffled in and out of these roles.


It just becomes another 'distraction' for the media to obsess over for a couple of days. And it also helps to give the impression that Boris is in charge, if one or two ministers get 'sacked' from their positions, with others getting 'promoted'.


Nothing will really change, but some of the appointments may 'raise some eyebrows'. For instance, Gavin Williamson did come under some flak from the teaching unions, who will gladly see the back of him, but really, do they expect any better now the former 'minister for jabs' is 'in charge' of the education system? (You can probably easily guess what one of the new 'policies' to be rolled-out will be...)


The other key takeaway is who DIDN'T lose their job - namely Priti Patel and Sajid Javid.

About Victoria | Victoria Atkins



This has been mentioned before by me but it does take some beating.


Meet the thrumpster herself Victoria Attkins.

Her and her old man own British Sugar. They rent the land to GW pharmaceuticals so they can grow medicinal cannabis on their land (happens to be the biggest legal farm in the world and yes it's in the UK). She was the UK drug minister and an avid campaigner to ban Cannabis. She got exposed over the net and took a bit of stick ONCE exposed. Did she get the sack? Did she Fu£k!


She is now the UK minister for safegaurding and Afghan resettlement.  It's only fair with her track record that she gets moved to such a trusting role. After all, she worked as a barrister specialising in the field of fraud!


I'm not making this up.

Just bend over this ain't going to hurt...I promise.
