Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

That's always been a source of puzzlement to me: "Currently you are Minister for Education, and you should be knowledgeable, qualified and experienced enough to know what would be good for the nation's education, but now I'm going to have a cabinet reshuffle and you will be Minister for Health, so how's your knowledge of the entire NHS?"
This is what the civil service is for. The minister is just the figurehead that sits on top of that department. Think Jen in The IT Crowd
