For Barwell, this is as close as he’ll get to seat at cabinet table

Who’s the naughty boy at the back of Mrs May’s class?

As the new parliamentary term begins, a photograph of headteacher Mrs May’s class has arrived in Inside Croydon’s inbox.

The first cabinet meeting after the long summer break for the interim Prime Minister’s top team shows a vaguely familiar figure sitting at the back of the class.

Yes, it’s none other than gaffe-prone Gavin Barwell, making a rare semi-public appearance.

As if he’s the naughty one, who’s not really part of the team.

Apparently, he might have used to have been an MP.

Now, he has been given a new task: as class milk monitor. Such a shame that one of his political heroes – Thatcher – put an end to daily milk provided in our primary schools.

And while May’s colleagues in her clusterfuck of a government all try to put a brave face on things (though Jeremy Hunt manages to look even more odd than usual), the man who is supposed to be her Chief of Staff looks a tad… well, peeved.

Do you think this professional politician has realised that this is as close to sitting at the cabinet table as he is ever likely to get?

    Well since becoming unemployed he does need a new job. What other role is there for a man of such ability? Who else is better qualified to serve the tea. He may not be allowed to make it however.
