But it's actually much easier to quantify with Ministers because they actually are there to do something other than be a constituency MP.
And this Govt, let's be fair, is a fucking shambles, led by a PM who is completely out of her depth. She took her own Govt into an unnecssary election (to give her a strong mandate with the EU) and then managed to lose that. She then makes a pact with the DUP, that has come back to bite her on her arse over the border issue (we'll stil have an open border with the EU - a bit strange considering it was all about 'taking back control'). And then to really compound it, she can't even get her own MP's to vote accordingly over a major Brexit bill - the day before she goes back to the EU to try to persuade them to move onto the next stage of the negotiation (a negotiation that is going to make the one we're just completing look like Janet & John).
Have you any faith in her, or her Govt, to get a good deal?
