I think Clarke will soon be public enemy number one with Mail readers once they have digested this news.

Come to think of it, it's very much a Ministry of None of the Talents.

Only one I've been close to being slightly impressed by has been Justine Greening at Transport.

Excellent, another reason for Clarke to retain his title as My Favourite Tory. Granted, that's a bit like choosing your favourite STI, but still...

I'm waiting for the penny to drop regarding criminal compensation.

Hammond at least isn't obnoxious.

A bit hypocritical calling HS2 objectors nimbies. What with him not supporting a rail line to Heathrow through Egham in his constituency.

Shapps on BBC news as I type, espousing his views on town centre regeneration. There's going to be a competition overseen by Mary Portas. Well whoop-de-fucking-do. "There's no sense of community when internet shopping - unlike a high street where you can can do exciting thngs like meet friends for a coffee." My adrenaline's pumping already.

You can do all that shit at an out of town mall without getting rained on.

That's as maybe, but unless Mary Portas has endorsed it, I'm not interested.

I thought she was discredited three times over support she showed previously to out of town shopping centres?

A person like that in a position of responsibility is - to coin a phrase - some seriously scary shit.

Jesus wept. There's another one who should be promptly joining the dole queue. I am fucking sick to the back teeth of seeing government ministers spouting blatantly inaccurate shit to the supine media, then promptly disappearing when they get called out on it (see Duncan Smith's bullshit about homelessness last month).

No-one reads corrections. They just need to dump the message, get the useful idiots at Sky and BBC News to report it (impartially, of course), their pals in the press to print it (with added inaccuracy and spin) and the job's done.
