Reshuffle is “reward for failure” for Rees-Mogg while people punished with tax hike

Responding to the government reshuffle, Liberal Democrat Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Layla Moran MP said: “This reshuffle is a pathetic attempt to distract from the Downing Street partygate scandal, putting Boris Johnson’s political survival ahead of the national interest.

“The only real Brexit opportunity so far seems to be for Jacob Rees-Mogg, who will pocket a whopping pay rise after trying to get Owen Paterson off the hook for breaking the rules.

“This is a reward for failure while people around the country are punished with a crippling Tory tax hike.

“The Conservatives need to focus on tackling the big issues facing the country, instead of doling out top jobs to Boris Johnson’s few remaining allies.”
