Favourite 13 things people are saying about Chris Grayling after his latest failing
Transport secretary Chris Grayling is back in the news today after a series of catastrophic reforms he implemented at the Probation service mean it is going to have to be renationalised to save it from complete disaster.
It’s Failing’s latest calamity, to add to that unfortunate ferry contract, those changes to the train timetables last year, the time he banned books for prisoners … seriously, how long have you got?
Here are our favourite things people had to say about him after his latest calamity.
I just can’t believe that one of Chris Grayling’s policies has had to be reversed after being found to be a disaster. I’m shocked. Really knocked me for six.

Just for one day, even one hour, I’d like to experience the massive, ironclad, invulnerable lack of self-consciousness that allows Chris Grayling to carry on coming into work.

Chris Grayling, chaos entity, fucked up the probation services so badly he’s forced a Conservative government to commit to renationalising them.

I don't like to suggest this, but if we give Chris Grayling £1m and tell him to fuck off, a long way off, it will be a damn sight cheaper for us tax payers and less damage will be done to the country.

I'm convinced that Chris Grayling has a bucket list of all the things he wants to fuck up before he goes. And he's giddily ploughing through it.

I wish all incompetent people got paid as much as Chris Grayling. I'd be quids in.

If Chris Grayling is secretly working for @jeremycorbyn to expose the inherent flaws of privatisation and make the case for nationalised public services, the man's a genius. If not, he's the most inept Cabinet Minister of all-time. And it's a crowded field. #FailingGrayling

Good news – the Tories have announced that the hugely incompetent Chris Grayling is to finally be dismissed.
Bad news – they've put Chris Grayling in charge of his sacking.

It's easy to turn this into another just-how-shit -is-Chris-Grayling story. But we know the answer to that. He is epically, unimaginably shit, on a colossal scale. We knew that ages ago.

Are we there yet?
Surely Chris Grayling has reached the low point in his story arc and things will start picking up for him soon? Surely? pic.twitter.com/1PexyEYcBh
