Sajid Javid sounds like a lockdown sceptic, but he won’t want to alienate the NHS


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."
