Needless to say, this is all the "brainchild", ie orphan, of Chris Grayling.

Guardian - John Crace - Failing Grayling is a method loser worthy of an Oscar

Here's a thought. If Chris Grayling didn't exist, would you be able to create him? Would you dare imagine a government minister who was quite so dim and obviously out of his depth? Or would you fear that if you did, no one would believe you?

When Theresa May appointed Grayling as transport secretary, she did so in the belief she was sidelining him into a job in which he could do little damage. Put him in charge of the NHS and half the country might have died within a matter of months, but surely the worst he could do at transport was make a few trains run late or fail to build the odd roundabout outside Kettering.

Wrong. Like all of us, the prime minister severely underestimated Grayling's capacity for failure. He treats failing as a serious piece of living theatre. There are no half measures with our Chris. He is a method loser. A perfectionist who should have won countless Oscars by now.
