Defence Minister

Watching the MOD select committee 17th October 2018 and Gavin Williams the Defence Secretary just doesn't cut it, he looks and talks weak.
When you end up getting savaged by John Spellar of all people, it's a sign you don't know your brief.

All three (Williamson, Nugee and Knighton) come across in the transcript at least as deeply unimpressive.
Expected. He isn't qualified to run the MOD. He's there purely as an authority figure for the Cabinet - he's ex Chief Whip and essentially Theresa May's enforcer. Johnny Mercer is a much better choice but he's got no chance of being selected under May after his comments about the state of the Conservative party, going as far as to say that if he were a member of the general public he wouldn't vote Conservative.
