‘What the hell is going on?’ – Farron asks as reports say Hammond briefly given number 2 job because of a typo

Commenting in response to reports that Philip Hammond was given the job of First Secretary of State because of a typo, Tim Farron said:

Alistair Carmichael has only been in his job for a single evening and already he’s seen off a Government Minister.

When No10 are an absolute shambles and can’t figure out who the PMs number 2 is you’ve got to wonder what the hell is going on.

This Government needs to deal with the massive job of overseeing Brexit, instead they are faffing about behind the scenes trying to work out each other’s job titles.
