As the unofficial Tory leadership contest moves up a gear, scores of Cabinet ministers, hoping to burnish their leadership credentials have been giving ‘wide-ranging’ speeches across London as they prepare for Theresa May’s inevitable departure.
Home Secretary Sajid Javid became the latest contender to show off his policy platform this afternoon, as he gave a speech at the Centre for Policy Studies, to launch the think tank’s new report on UK business.
Unfortunately for Javid, it appears the name of the event and the report didn’t quite match his grand ambitions. After all, the tagline ‘Think Small, a report on small businesses’ doesn’t quite remind you of a grand statesman.
Somehow Mr Steerpike doesn’t think the Home Secretary will be adopting ‘Sajid Javid: Think Small’ as his catchphrase in any upcoming hustings.
