The long-anticipated post-Brexit reshuffle has delivered unexpected fireworks after Sajid Javid rejected an ultimatum to sack his advisors and effectively hand control of the Treasury to No. 10, in turn paving the way for Tory rising star Rishi Sunak to get the Treasury job. This means that Boris Johnson and his Chief Advisor Dominic Cummings now have a shot at delivering real change across Whitehall. Johnson sees the Treasury as essential to delivering his levelling up agenda across the country. Having control of the purse strings, an ‘on side’ Chancellor and, crucially, a single team of advisors, really matters. Despite the shock and the headlines (neither of which will concern Johnson or Cummings) they now have just that - control. If, in two or three years’ time Johnson, Sunak and Cummings have begun to deliver on their election promise to change lives across this country, then none of today’s drama will matter a jot. That is, however, a big if.
