Gav is gone? Gavin Williamson 2/1 favourite to leave Cabinet next

| 17.08.2020

Education secretary Gavin Williamson is the 2/1 favourite to be the next Cabinet minister to leave their post following his latest u-turn on exams. 

As the grading fiasco continues to rumble on, the MP for South Staffordshire appears increasingly likely to either be axed or quit his current role.

Other ministers including Robert Jenrick and Priti Patel have weathered the storm in recent months, but it remains to be seen whether Williamson can do the same.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Given the backlash to exam grades it’s perhaps not too much of a surprise that Williamson is the clear favourite now in a hotly contested market.”
