11:08 pm: Minister for Inequality
apparently, in a staggering display of missing the point, the new Minister for Women and Equality is working unpaid.

i mean, blergh??? they have an excuse (the number of paid ministerial positions is limited by law) but it doesn't sound like a very good one. you only need so many damn minister of state for paperclips at the department of administrative affairs, and this, whilst not exactly a high-profile position, is actually a position with wide-ranging responsibility, and not really subordinate to any one department.

I think you'll find that role has historically been carried out by a group of people in the Cabinet, including but not limited to

The Prime Minister
The Deputy Prime Minister
The Chancellor of the Exchequer
The Lord Chancellor
The Secretary of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office
The Secretary of State for the Home Department
