Tory Chris ‘Failing’ Grayling – or in this case perhaps, Bailing Grayling – has quit the parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee. Grayling, whose record of failure in every role has been unblemished by success, had recently lost out on the chairmanship of the committee.
Julian Lewis was elected as chair in his stead – and was stripped of the Tory whip by a furious Johnson. Grayling therefore achieved the unique distinction of losing out on a role that had been rigged for him to win.
It seems the embarrassment of serving on the committee was too much even for a man accustomed to routine humiliation.
