You really want to go so far down the list? One could argue the influence that the Shadow Leader of the House has on Labourís Brexit policy, however itís simpler just to point out that Alok Sharma, the international development secretary and cabinet member, has a degree in Physics. So your statement that there are no scientists in Boris Johnsonís cabinet is factually wrong.

Iíve never known such a finicky responses over detail. There could be a conversation over why so few scientists are MPs, or whether scientists would make better MPs.
Or you could say, "sorry, my mistake, I must have missed Valerie Vaz in my statement of there isn't a single scientist in the shadow cabinet"
