Johnson just taught everyone how to reshuffle a cabinet

This is how a PM should behave, that is fire the lame ones and ask the recalcitrant to go and replace them immediately and Johnson did just that!

Boris Johnson axing of senior Tory ministers in a swift move is the way to go. His acceptance of the resignation of Syed Javid as Chancellor is also exemplary.

The UK is now leading the way in the process of democracy. It is teaching the rest of the countries in the Commonwealth how to such a crisis.

Perhaps other countries with lame and recalcitrant ministers would follow the lead?

In the UK, Sajid Javid has quit as chancellor after he was ordered to do so by the PM.

The chancellor became recalcitrant and refused to sack his team of aides. He left and is replaced by Rishi Sunak.

Before that, Mr Johnson has sacked Julian Smith as Northern Ireland secretary, Andrea Leadsom as business secretary, Esther McVey as housing minister, Theresa Villiers as environment secretary and Geoffrey Cox as attorney general.

A complete round of cabinet reshuffle barely two months after it was put in place.

While Johnson is taking a leaf from President Donald Trump, it also a lesson to other countries where a cabinet reshuffle is taboo.

In Malaysia, the Prime Minister says he will carry out a cabinet reshuffle in a few months time. This gives the lame and recalcitrant ministers time to fix their mood.

But it is not working, is it? Nothing is really happening at the ministerial level to see the impact of any changes in the country.

Maybe the Pakatan Harapan government should take a look at Britain, the ancient rulers of Malaysia.

The new leader Boris is not worried about popularity contest or about nominating a novice at any posts.

In Malaysia, the PM says he nominated all novices and they need time to adjust and learn.

If you are joining a new company and doing something you never did before, it won’t take you 24 months to adjust. Would you?
