David Cameron’s cabinet reshuffle – in line with expectations

What would be the point of analysing the latest cabinet reshuffle in detail? Dave’s done exactly as expected – replaced a number of middle-aged well-qualified experienced male cabinet ministers with younger poorly-qualified women. Why do I say ‘poorly-qualified’? Because if these women were well-qualified, they’d certainly be in the cabinet already.

Perhaps the worst example is the replacement of one of the few conviction politicians in the cabinet, Michael Gove, Education Secretary, by Nicky Morgan, Minister for Women and Equalities. We note she retains her ‘Women and Equalities’ portfolio. All government policy directions with a possible gender angle already favour women and/or girls over men and/or boys, so we can’t imagine that portfolio can take up more than five minutes in her day. We note media speculation that Gove’s policy direction will remain unchanged as she’ll be supported by two ‘Goveites’, Nick Gibb and Nick Boles. In other words, Morgan will bring nothing to the position. She’ll be yet another overpaid talking head, at least for the next 10 months.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
