How the Conservative Cabinet is dominated by MPs from the south of England

“Theresa May’s cabinet has the most members from the home counties in more than two decades, with more than two-thirds of the most senior ministers representing seats in southern England.

Only seven of the 22 full cabinet ministers represent constituencies in the Midlands or north of England. Those seven hold safe Tory shire seats that are outside major provincial cities and are in the top 20% of affluent communities.”

This is the opening to an interesting piece of analysis in today’s “Guardian” newspaper.
