Freewheelin’ Phil faces down the real opposition – his own party | John Crace

The government may be on its last legs, but after seeing off his cabinet rivals the chancellor has never felt better Freewheelin’ Phil couldn’t keep the smile off his face at Treasury questions. With his cabinet rivals having tried and failed to get rid of him over the weekend in a series of briefings and counter-briefings, he was now pretty much untouchable. The Maybot may still have been nominally in charge, but she was prime minister in name only. She had no real power. Certainly not over him. If he played his cards right, the country was his for the taking. It was just a matter of picking the right time.The chancellor was so lost in thought – the enjoyment of Boris Johnson and David Davis’s very obvious discomfort was a pleasure not to be hurried – that he missed the first question on levels of pay. No matter. He gave the chief secretary to the Treasury a nudge. She could deal with that. Continue reading...

Conservatives are desperate for summer recess but MPs believe plotting to replace PM will resume after break – despite her calls to end infightingTheresa May is expected to face an effort by some Tory MPs to oust her in the autumn, despite her attempt to regain authority over her cabinet by ordering them to stop leaking details of their infighting over Brexit. With a letter of no confidence already in circulation but only a small number of signatures so far, several MPs said on Monday that May was safe until summer – with colleagues desperate to get to the parliamentary recess and have a break.

Magic U-turn allows Justine Greening to splash cash on schools | John Crace

Education secretary tells MPs she has found £1.3bn to offset any unfairness in system that is definitely, totally fairLeft hand meet right hand. Just weeks after the prime minister insisted there was no extra spare cash for schools, the education secretary came to the Commons to make a statement on how she had miraculously found more money for schools.

The Guardian view on cabinet leaks: not before time, the battle of Brexit | Editorial

A spate of ministerial leaks point to efforts to stop Philip Hammond’s attempt to put the economy first in the Brexit talksTheresa May’s cabinet is limping towards the temporary relief that this week’s start of the summer parliamentary recess may offer. A spate of leaks, mainly against the chancellor, Philip Hammond, nevertheless shows the extent of ministerial disagreement over Brexit and much else, and the weakness of Mrs May’s much-diminished authority. On Tuesday, Mrs May will attempt to lay down the law about cabinet collective responsibility once again. Few expect the lesson to stick for long. That’s because Mrs May lacks the clout to get rid of even Larry the Downing Street cat, much less to sack a disloyal minister. The recess can cover over but cannot conceal a set of divisions that the government must nevertheless confront.All cabinets leak. Mostly they do it officially in the form of “guidance” to the media. But cabinet ministers leaking against one another is relatively rare. When it happens, it is almost invariably a sign of deep prime ministerial and cabinet weakness. Harold Wilson’s 1964 cabinet was a notable example. So was John Major’s in 1992. If Theresa May’s cabinet now makes that three, it is because all these governments have something in common: small or non-existent majorities. A fragile majority, divisive issues, a weak prime minister and mischief-making ministers always make an unstable mix. Continue reading...

Why we should be suspicious of the Tory ‘get Hammond’ project | Jonathan Freedland

The chancellor may have an abacus where his conscience should be, but cabinet leaks should give us pause. He wants a sane Brexit, and hardliners want him out of the way• Jonathan Freedland is a Guardian columnistFew Guardian readers will be shedding a sympathetic tear for Philip Hammond. Most will hear of his view that public sector workers are “overpaid”, reportedly shared with cabinet colleagues last Thursday, and they will recoil in outrage. As my colleague Zoe Williams forcefully argues, the chancellor’s observation – which he sought to justify by noting that those in the public sector benefited from fuller pensions than those outside it – betrays a kind of business class myopia towards the lived experience of those getting by on too little.Hammond tried to make amends in his BBC interview yesterday: “You can’t eat your pension, you can’t feed your kids with your pension contribution, I understand that,” he said. But the damage was done. Today’s Daily Mirror seizes on the notion that Hammond is an unfeeling and hypocritical fat cat, cosy in his two grand homes, paid for by the taxpayer, and claims he rents out a third, the one he actually owns, for a juicy £10,000 a month.

Overpaid public sector? Philip Hammond’s divisive talk is no longer working | Zoe Williams

The chancellor’s efforts to set workers against each other will backfire – as even his Tory enemies know• Zoe Williams is a Guardian columnistPhilip Hammond is a man more briefed against than briefing. When reports surface of an obnoxious remark he’s made, they have to be situated in part of a wider Tory scheme to hunt down any remaining members with a grasp on reality, and destroy them.Yet whatever the motivation behind cabinet leaks that Hammond finds public sector workers “overpaid”, nobody who saw his performance on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show will doubt that this is what he thinks. “When you take into account the very generous contributions that public sector employers have to pay in to their very generous pensions,” Hammond recounted, a look of fleeting perplexity on his face, as if wondering whether there were a glitch in his software, “it is a simple fact: relative to private sector workers, they are paid a 10% premium.” Continue reading...

UK government sees need for phased Brexit -finance minister

Senior members of the government are becoming convinced of the need for a phased British departure from the European Union to help protect the economy, finance minister Philip Hammond said on Sunday. Brexit minister David Davis heads to Brussels on Monday for a first full round of talks, with EU officials hoping the British government, yet to set out detailed proposals on several major issues, begins to show more urgency about doing a deal before Britain leaves the bloc in 2019.
