RISHI SUNAK appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer

Shows that repeating Cummings pre-scheduled notes during election debates gets you high govt positions. He'll get destroyed when he can't just repeat pre-programmed lines, as was shown with Javid.

He's a patsy for Cummings. We edge closer to a dictatorship. Javed resigned because they wanted Cummings approved advisors for him and more power to the PM. If you aren't really worried by this you don't really understand what's happening here.

Still at least we got brexit done.

He's not the second most powerful, he's a patsy for the political advisor. I'm surprised they didn't replace Javid with Cummings' left bollock with a smiley face painted on it

Is it really too much to ask that the PM and the Chancellor are on the same page? One of the biggest problems of recent years was Hammond being so at odds with May. I'd definitely prefer not to have a yes man and that the chancellor can challenge the PM so I don't think Sunak is a good appointment in that respect.

It’s a terrible appointment. The guy has little experience and absolutely a yes man for Johnson and Cummings.

It's not them "being on the same page". It's Cummings wanting to get BJ, and by inference himself, more power.

In this particular instance I doubt you can call it the 2nd most powerful politician in the country. He will do as he is told. There’s no wielding of power involved.
Fair enough but on paper at least. Generally speaking, the COE would usually have a pretty good chance of one day leading the party/country.

Let's face it, they don't have much choice. The Parliamentary Conservative Party is packed with brexiters, so they are either pretty stupid or self serving and corrupt, or else they are people who were prepared to put their career and Party above that of the country, as independent thought will see them censured by No 10 and deselected down the line by their Constituency Association.

He's getting rid of some of the Brexit MPs who helped him to where he is.
Which is quite funny. They've been dropped like the DUP partner.

When it all blows up, which it is only a matter of time, the carnage will be

They can only be replaced with other tossers though.
