Whittingdale Set To Replace Nicky Morgan

TBG can sensationally reveal that a leading critic of the BBC is tomorrow set to become the new culture secretary.

The news that John Whittingdale is set to replace Nicky Morgan came on the same day as Treasury minister Rishi Sunak confirmed Prime Minister Boris Johnson has ordered a review of the sanction for non-payment of the £154.50 charge, which funds the BBC.

Mr Sunak told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show earlier - “That is something the prime minister has said we will look at.”

"I think it's fair to say people find the criminalisation of non-payment of the licence fee to be something that has provoked questions in the past.”

UPDATE - Nicky Morgan says “leaving the cabinet is harder than leaving the EU” as she’s appointed to the Lords and stays on as Culture Sec.
