Kathy Gyngell’s verdict on Mrs May’s reshuffle


Yesterday morning Kathy Gyngell was invited on to BBC Radio Scotland with Lucy Fisher, the senior political correspondent of The Times, to assess Mrs May’s Cabinet reshuffle and discuss its implications.

While both argued it underlined the PM’s weakness and lack of authority, there agreement ended. Lucy thought the reshuffle showed Mrs May promoting gender and identity politics, and in her view this was a welcome recognition of the Conservative Party’s need to address these concerns and appeal to the young. Kathy, by contrast, thought it represented all that was wrong. She said it was exactly this type of PC politics that would alienate Mrs May’s already disenfranchised core voter base – voters whose concerns focus on Brexit and a reform of immigration.
