Finally, a Cabinet Minister has spoken for the entire zombie nation

One frustrated minister has finally done something that has cross-party consensus - skewering their boss with a Malcom Tucker-esque rant.

You have to have a very long memory to recall the last time a member of the government summed up the national mood.

But one unnamed cabinet minister has managed that very feat in a conversation with Newsnight's Nicholas Watt.

Asked why the Prime Minister was pushing for yet another seemingly doomed vote on her Brexit plans, the minister responded:"Fuck knows, I am past caring. It's like the living dead in here".

 

 

Off-screen a pained Emily Maitlis exclaims: "Oh god".

But the minister wasn't finished, taking aim at the Prime Minister's stiff and humourless MayBot personality, adding: "It is her inability to engage in the most basic human interactions that brought us here.

"Cabinet is totally broken down. Ministers say their bit, she gives nothing away. One side thinks X will happen, the other side think Y will happen, and the prime minister decides on Z."

It's a shame the politico refused to go on-the-record, because they'd probably be a favourite in the betting stakes to be the next Prime Minister...
