Professor Tim Bale, May picks Brexiteer to replace scandal-hit aid minister
Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at QMUL, comments on Penny Mordaunt’s appointment as the new International Development Secretary. This follows Priti Patel’s resignation on Wednesday. “Leaving aside Penny Mordaunt’s qualifications for the job, the main one is obviously that she’s a Brexiteer. It doesn’t seem now that any appointment can be made in this government other than on the basis of whether that person supported ‘leave’ or ‘remain’,” he said.
