Our virtual Prime Minister tweeted to tell us the new Education Secretary will continue as Minister for Women and Equalities.
Nicky Morgan is the new Education Secretary and continues as Minister for Women and Equalities.

Ignoring the slightly confusing fact that Cameron is wrong as she didn’t use to hold the equalities bit of the post he refers to (that was reserved the Sajid Javid), this does confirm that we now have someone who voted against same-sex marriage as the minister responsible for equalities.
Talking to her local paper Morgan said of the issue:
“There have been plenty of little changes down the years but what’s never been changed is that the fact that marriage is between a man and a woman. I think that was one of the issues people, especially those who asked me to vote against, found hardest to accept and it also tied in with my own Christian faith too.”
Cameron’s government….fighting for equal rights, unless you are gay!
