LONDON (Bywire News) - In a political landscape that has been nothing short of tumultuous since 2019, the Conservative administration has seemingly found a high-cost way to reward its own inefficiency. This has involved them paying out over £1 million in severance payments to a parade of transient ministers. These facts have been highlighted in a meticulous investigation conducted by Byline Times - a sharp exposé of the financial toll political instability has wrought. Intriguingly, some of these fleeting ministers have walked away with farewell figures that were as much as seven times their actual reported salaries - a somewhat generous reward for their varying degrees of competency and time on the job. One of the more notable beneficiaries of this severance bonanza is Kwasi Kwarteng, who held the role of Chancellor for a paltry 38 days. Despite his brief stay in the Treasury hot seat, he was able to secure a severance payment of £16,876 in contrast to his salary of just £2,359. How'...

She takes over from MP Lisa Nandy, who now takes on the role of minister for international development, seen by some insiders as a drop in status. Ms Nandy is said to be proud of her previous work, particularly focusing on housing and devolution, and reportedly looks forward to taking on her new role, according to sources close to her. She will still hold a place in cabinet sessions. Ms Rayner, voted in as deputy leader in 2020, was previously shadow cabinet office, dealing primarily with government protocol. Her new role comes from the reshuffle coinciding with parliament's return from its summer recess. She is expected to maintain her deputy leader role in addition to her new responsibilities. At the same time, Jim McMahon, shadow environment secretary,...
