Will Gavin Williamson be the next Cabinet Minister to leave?


Education secretary Gavin Williamson remains favourite to be the next Cabinet minister to leave their post.

At various points in 2020, ministers including Robert Jenrick and Priti Patel have been favourites in the Next Cabinet Minister To Leave betting, but Mr Williamson continues to lead the market, according to Betfair.

The MP for South Staffordshire has kept a relevatively low profile ever since coming in for fierce criticism over the exams row a few months ago.

In August 2020, he was forced to apologise for disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic over outrage concerning exam grades. Initially, it had been reported by the Daily Telegraph that Williamson had repeatedly defended the algorithm methods used in order to award A Level results.

More recently, headteachers have aimed their anger towards Williamson after the government increased the pressure on schools to remain fully open in the run-up to Christmas as the country continues to battle a pandemic.

Mr Williamson is followed in the betting by Priti Patel, while Matt Hancock has become third favourite - again primarily as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
