Editorial : Boris Johnson’s cabinet should not be less diverse than the nation it serves

Editorial : The reshuffle means top ministers are more white, male and privately educated than before – which does not help them deliver for the many

The new cabinet meets for the first time ( Getty ) B oris Johnson probably believes that he has appointed the best people for the tasks ahead. His first cabinet, assembled in July, was designed to deliver Brexit . Thus it featured prominent Leavers, Andrea Leadsom, Theresa Villiers and Esther McVey, even though their records as ministers were indifferent. This week’s new cabinet is intended to focus, in New Labour language, on “delivery”. Mr Johnson recognises the need to improve public services and invest in infrastructure, in ways that will convince those voters who put their trust in the “One Nation” Conservatives for the first time at the election that they were right to do so. It may be – we put it no more strongly than this – that the prime minister tends to see ministers capable of delivering change in his own image. That may be why his new cabinet is slightly whiter, more male and more privately educated than his first draft. two thirds of ministers around the cabinet were privately educated, while the numbers of female and ethnic minority members have both fallen by one.

Shouldn't people just be their on whatever counts as merit in the establishment? Make Britain less diverse, and we might get somewhere. 'Diverse' how? Where are the Cabinet ministers who are poor, unemployed, sick, disabled, homeless, refugees, destitute asylum seekers...? The politics of the woke. - Diversity! Bigots use the term diversity because they see immutable characteristics like colour of skin, ethnicity & sex, as more important than the persons qualities, skill or work they put in. They are actual Bigots!

Stop peddling quotas by different name - best person for the job should get it or in politics whoever PM decides. No place for begging for special groups. Where's the 20 year olds and disabled people. Appointing someone to a position on the basis of race is the definition of racist.If minorities are under represented in the cabinet we should be subsidising more scholarships & training that lead to the role,not appointing a token minister who is largely uninvolved as 2nd choice

Editorial: Boris Johnson's historic cabinet reshuffle will dramatically destabilise the government Editorial : If the prime minister does not rein in his maverick adviser soon, the resentments built up by such conduct will make the case for him Completely in agreement The UK government has a serious adjustment to make to being an independent nation, to do that we cant afford to transition slowly. BJ's commitment to a green economy is good but it needs to be accompanied with a high WTO tariff on goods we produce, free trade for FF tax matchers. More melodrama from the Independent.

Will Boris Johnson let go of old allies as he reshuffles his cabinet?With the battleground of Brexit in his rear view mirror, Prime Minister BorisJohnson needs a different type of top team - analysis from Sky's BethRigby 👇 BorisJohnson BethRigby WALOB. Brexit is still very much in front. we know the tories don't want to talk about it any more. ComplicitMedia BethRigby don’t look at what he’s doing. Look at what he’s distracting you from. There’ll be another Brexit failure somewhere

Millionaire denies paying for Boris Johnson's £15k Caribbean holidayA spokesman for David Ross says the entrepreneur only helped the prime minister find accommodation for his Christmas getaway. And anyway so what? Should have no time for holidays when all this shit in the world is going on! Or even in the country to say the least.. Hope he packed his factor 50 dont want them little white legs medium rared.. stick to butlins next time bozza just hold onto that wig of yours 😂 And this matters why ? More Sky anti-gov, negative inciting lazy 'reporting' from Sky 'journalist'. Never showed french firefighters al& police having punch ups & setting themselves alight in riots - just miles off our shores but woke or anti gov/uk agenda continues.

Cabinet reshuffle: Boris Johnson assembles youngest ever post-war cabinetAs the dust settles in Downing Street after a day of ministerial shuffling, Boris Johnson has organised the youngest cabinet in the post-war era. All eager to do what he tells them, the new chancellor for instance... .top criteria - not age but to remain under Cummings thumb - name those who could raise voice!! Cummings needs them to be young and in thrall to him. Rishi would not dare disobey that unelected fraud; he has about as much of a backbone as an intoxicated tapeworm sucking Farage's gut dry.

Boris Johnson's 'moderate' reshuffle morphs into a major crisisSajid Javid's departure is the big news, but the underlying theme is one of complete command and control from the centre. Not really he just decided to make changes, surround himself with people he wants to work with Loving all the comments suggesting that the Chancellor resigning over a matter of principle, a month before the budget that will define the next half decade or more, is apparently no big deal. The only crisis is in your little upset minds

Question Time audience accuses 'bully' Boris Johnson of 'impersonating' TrumpFormer chancellor Sajid Javid's shock resignation in a row over sacking his personal aides during Thursday's Cabinet reshuffle, sparked a heated debate on Question Time about Boris Johnson's leadership style Huge - someone finally got it; amazing & Saunders is the US Corbyn!! Boris = 10 more years & Donald 4 more, before Ivanka takes over for another 8!! LOL!!! Pommy Sooks.
