Richard Holden Promotion Watch: Day 26
People have been in touch to ask why I never criticised Richard Holden. But I am highly critical of this Government, of which Richard is the strong supporter that he was elected to be. I like him, not that that has anything to do with politics. I like a lot of what he is doing, or trying to do. He is, however, a political opponent.
The reshuffle has put everything in place for a General Election in May 2023. Yet there is no sign of the name of a loyal, and obviously ambitious, former special adviser to several Cabinet Ministers.
Perhaps he has turned down offers? The alternative is that the composition of the Government is being determined by the Prime Minister's wife. Therefore, Richard needs to be asked the question. He may consider it asked here and now. And every day until further notice.
