“A cabinet of shits, charlatans and shysters”

I think John Crace has the measure of Boris Johnson and his choices for the cabinet in the UK’s new, and hopefully very brief, government.

Addendum: a comment on another article in today’s Guardian sums it up quite nicely:

So now you have a narcissistic pathological liar as PM, a home secretary who supports the death penalty, a chancellor who was a casino banker for Deutsche Bank prior to the 2008 crash, a foreign secretary who doesn’t know why Dover is important for the British economy and who wants to shut down Parliament, a trade secretary who almost got a mental breakdown over cheese imports and a scarecrow as environment secretary.

What could possibly go wrong?

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
