When Sajid Javid quit as Chancellor it served up an unexpected vintage Reshuffle Day. But do big ministerial resignations really come as a surprise to the people moving the chesspieces? Special guest GAVIN BARWELL, former Chief of Staff to Theresa May, tells us how tense it gets in Westminster when Cabinet job are reassigned, and offers some insider advice for new ministers. 

Plus we talk to SARAH WOLLASTON about her time as a select committee chair – and her concerns about this government’s attempt to dodge scrutiny. And there’s one last chance to hear the expertise and mellifluous tones of outgoing Attorney General GEOFFREY COX before he rides into the sunset.

Winning and Governing in Difficult Times: Gavin Barwell MP

Play
Read more
The marginal constituency of Croydon Central was a key battleground in the 2015 General Election. The incumbent Conservative MP Gavin Barwell was fighting a serious challenge from Labour, for whom the seat was an essential win if they were to become the largest party. But Gavin Barwell held it by 165 votes. The rest is electoral history – one that he hopes to write in a forthcoming book about the campaign trail in Croydon. He joined Birkbeck Politics to discuss the issue not just of winning, but governing in difficult times.

Gavin Barwell was elected as the MP for Croydon Central in 2010. Before becoming an MP, he worked for the Conservative Party, serving as its Chief Operating Officer between between October 2003 and May 2006, and had his own consultancy business. In 2011 he became the Parliamentary Private Secretary to Greg Clark, which was followed by his appointment in 2012 as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Michael Gove, the then Secretary of State for Education. In 2013 he became the Assistant Government Whip and in 2014 was promoted to his current role as Lord Commissioner of Her Majesty’s Treasury.
