Will Damian Green's exit from the cabinet affect the Tories?

Damian Green, one of Theresa May's closest allies, has been sacked from the cabinet after an inquiry found he had breached the ministerial code. He was "asked to quit" after he was found to have made "inaccurate and misleading" statements over what he knew about claims pornography was found on his office computer in 2008. He also apologised for making writer Kate Maltby feel uncomfortable in 2015.

"It is a personal blow for Theresa May, but the news has come out just before Christmas so it won't remain in the headlines for long.

"His role could be divided among a number of Cabinet ministers. It does weaken the remain/soft Brexit side of the Cabinet."
