I've been Kremlin watching.
Yesterday and this morning Williamson was reported to be out of his office canvassing Tory MPs to support him in keeping schools open against the advice of SAGE and the wishes of 'senior' cabinet colleagues - presumably everybody except Ricky Sunshine.
He gave a statement to the House which described the number of schools that would delay opening as 'small'.
This clearly against the advice, Tier arrangements and cabinet views. He promised that the list of closed schools would be published on the DfE website immediately. It wasn't, causing considerable annoyance in the teaching profession and amongst parents.
The list was eventually published, and is much larger than 'small'. I read that as being a struggle (probably with No. 10) over the size of the list, which Gav the Chav comprehensively lost.
In the real Kremlin that would mean a nice dacha and a long retirement, but in the present government, who knows? His loyal arselicking support is no longer needed to achieve Brexit...
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it.
