Only connect

So we have a new Government, and a new Education Secretary. 

Several of the cabinet studied Geography, which is a good thing, and many of them studied Humanities subjects. There are several appointments where people are in departments in an area which they have expertise in, such as James Timpson: one of the geographers too. 

David Lammy, the new Foreign Secretary said yesterday:

"The world is a dangerous, divided place and this is a tough geopolitical moment with huge challenges for Britain, but I'm excited about the project which is reconnecting Britain with the global community."

I look forward to seeing how the next year sees a shift in emphasis towards reconnecting with the world.
