Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at Queen Mary has written an opinion piece for the Guardian on the new health secretary, Sajid Javid. He wrote: "Javid isn’t the cardboard cut-out Tory austerian he’s sometimes made out to be. In 2019, he was not slow to acknowledge the case for promising a significant increase in health spending in the Tory manifesto that year. For another, not only is Javid more of a pragmatist than people give him credit for, he knows that the minority community from which his own family comes has been hit harder than most by Covid-19."
