If he had gone to Eton, that would at least be some sort of fucking excuse.
His wiki picture does make him look like a cat rapist.
I can understand why you like him, then.
I have a low bar, it's slightly higher than Katie Hopkins.
so - are the tories gearing up to have another push at ditching may? Might well happen if the get a shoeing at the local elections. Cant see it will do them any good.
The way it works is that a certain number of grumpy letters to the chair of the 1922 Committee can trigger a leadership election. 48 I think. And there are currently 40, apparently. So it looks unlikely she will last much longer, particularly if and when the Tories get a kicking in the ironically-named May elections. So BJ and this Williamson guy are expecting the starting-gun before long.
I certainly needed a refresher on what we had already been told about Williamson in recent months. I forgot he is the one with the tarantula called Cronus on his desk.
Who is Gavin Williamson and why does he keep a tarantula on his desk?
Which one is the Tory leadership hopeful?
The one standing next to Blair.
Cameron giving it his best david brent. Love it how the guy he is talking to (steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal) fucks him off at the first opportunity. And the defensive desperation in his voice when he bleats about brexit being "a mistake not a disaster".

Government plans for 'doomsday scenario' in case of no-deal Brexit
Theresa May is a classic middle manager without the vision to seize Brexit opportunities
After the last election, May offered her resignation to the Parliamentary Party 'no no no' they said, if one of these people wants to take the reigns they should step up and go for it.
The Tories have a great 'subs bench' of talent, and intelligence. All of whom understand the needs of the country and the people. The sort of leaders that think and plan for the long term and will walk among the people as friends.
May has avoided promoting anyone who might start to look like a plausible leader, so if there is any talent in the party it's being left on the backbenches. Instead we get the likes of Gavin "you can't be a convincing Machiavellian bastard with a name like Gavin" Williamson. And Nick Timothy, who should by rights have been a busted flush after the last election, continues to lurk in the background like a shit Rasputin. Gavin "yes, it's another one called Gavin" Barwell also remains in a key position despite the stench of scorched tower blocks and electoral failure lingering around him.
So if res mob get in will his nanny deal with brexit
Further attempts to derail the limitless ambitions of Spiderman CBE.
Is the phrase Sexit that the TImes have used there new? I cant say I've been routinely keeping up with the Times!
still amazed this plank get so much telly time
hmmm - a lot of hate for gavin williamson within the ranks of the vermin.
Any ideas why?
Would've thought we've (or rather 'they') gone into ''anyone but May' territory now.
Or is just maneuvering by the press to install one of their darlings (Boris, Rees-Mogg et al) as leader?
They dont like him cos He's a comprehensive school boy. And a bit northern
If I were a Tory politician with my eyes on the leadership I'd be keeping well out of it and letting May take the shit for brexit.
who the fuck is mogg's suppose to appeal to ...
