Quote from: Slim on June 04, 2019, 16:35:32 pmKit MalthouseAuthor of a compromise Brexit plan that was backed by several ministers, including prominent Brexiteers. Kit is pretty much unheard of outside the Westminster bubble. Only became an MP in 2015, though that was preceded by a long career in local government. Solid Brexit credentials, voted to Leave in 2016. Wrote a very eloquent and thoughtful piece on the necessity of leaving the EU before the referendum. I like Kit but would assess his chances of success in this contest as very slim, if only because of his relative inexperience and lack of exposure.

QuoteAs for why he was a successful education secretary - I don't want to derail the thread too much, but it's rare for people in that job to bring about actual results, mostly because they aren't prepared to take on the education establishment and the teachers to help the kids. Critically, he made exams more rigorous and he got the Education Reform Act through the commons within 11 weeks of the 2010 General Election. He set higher standards for entry into the teaching profession and gave teachers more power over discipline. He set higher standards for failing schools as well, ensuring that they could be handed over to new management more easily.
