An equalities mess at the heart of government

There will be many in the Fourth Estate who today rejoice at the removal from UK government of Maria Miller, whom prime minister David Cameron has finally seen fit to resign.

However, in place of Miller as women’s minister we have Nicky Morgan, who is subservient to a man – Sajid ‘Fuck the Poor’ Javid – on matters pertaining to her new brief. There is also an overall division of responsibility on equality matters between four different ministers: Sajid Javid, Nicky Morgan, Jenny Willott and Helen Grant, with Javid as the new equalities overlord.

Confused? You’re not the only one.

Divide and mismanage, ’tis the Tory way.
