Seventh not counting Justine Greening who turned down the post and I bet a fair few others would if offered it right now.

Which vampire takes over next to suck the lifeblood out of the workforce?

Hammond is probably high on the list as a typical head of DWP but we need more of a maverick type who will convince the leader to get shut of UC.

I think there is just going to be more regular tweaking as long as a divisive and destabilising figure such as May is at the helm. PM should never have gone to a remainer whose heart was not in the negotiations nor someone incapable of appointing the correct ministers to posts with emphasis on the flagship policy an absolute priority to get right - she is the one who should be going next.

When Rudd can come out with an unsupportive comment like "wait and see", she probably has eyes on the top job herself. Again though, the very fact that Rudd got that post after the very recent Windrush disgrace suggests that there are not many considered capable enough or that she herself is seen as vital to the cabinet.

The very rate of turnover is in itself an argument to immediately halt the roll out of Universal Credit particularly with respect to the uncertainty of brexit. Rudd's initial intervention of a primary 10,000 migration would hopefully indicate something like that is on the cards in spite of the usual no uturns style rhetoric.

Accepting the DWP post when matters over what deal (if any) had already degenerated sufficiently to have produced her current stance (just as it already had for McVey) was most likely an unexpected opportunity to rise up the greasy pole after her previous setback and therefore come as no surprise that her heart isn't in the present job enough to reassure taxpayers of a little stability.

There is something `menacing` at the heart of DWP when it can`t retain ministers placed in charge of it without them leaving faster than a scalded cat months into the job. It seems once regulations are put in place, nobody can shift them without becoming a martyr to DWP`s stance where they are hell bent on carrying out their plans and their shareholders wishes. Even with the commons select committee gatherings being a bit of a pointless excersize where sitting around a table asking questions while people starve and are booted out of their homes while this lot muse over what to do.

Anyone who has been in the Position of Secretary of State for DWP have been very right wing minded and that will continue to be the case as long as the Tories are in power. Heidi Allen (the woman visiting food banks with Frank Field recently) might make a good candidate, but I doubt she would even be offered the post given her own party would know she is too compassionate about what she has seen as the resulting chaos that is Universal Credit.
