    Abstract:
    Theresa May’s appointment as Prime Minister was expected to bring about a more gender-balanced cabinet. Her reshuffle was one of the most radical in recent years – dubbed by some as the “the day of the long knives” echoing Macmillan’s brutal reshuffle which took place 54 years before (to the day). However, James Hand argues that that while it can be said that ‘the posh boys have gone’, the ‘boys’ nonetheless remain.
