But there again as the chief Brexit negotiator, why wouldn't he ?
He'll be out of a Brexit negotiator's job by then in any case. In any case, hasn't he already been given the role of National Security Advisor by Boris?

Hi

Nope, it is paid for by Public Funds.

There are a huge number of SPADs, all paid for.

They are used as as when they are required and then sent back to their previous jobs.

Cummings was an exception to the norm.

A "huge number"?
Far less than under Tony Blair, apparently.

Here's a link with lists included - sadly only up until the last GE but feel free to take a peek because I CBA.
