Jo Johnson attacks sacked May aide Nick Timothy over Justine Greening resignation

Damian Hinds has replaced Justine Greening as Education Secretary Damian Hinds has replaced Justine Greening as Education Secretary

Damian Hinds, the Member of Parliament for East Hampshire, was educated at St Ambrose College, a Catholic grammar school in Cheshire, before attending Oxford University.

Writing in the Telegraph, Mr Timothy said: "Greening was unpopular with officials, she frustrated reformers, and she exasperated the Prime Minister".

Johnson, who was himself moved to the Transport department from his post as universities minister in the reshuffle, tweeted that Timothy was "so wrong" with his claims that Greening had undermined reforms of higher education.

Mr Timothy accused the former education secretary of "putting the brakes" on policies like free schools and standing in the way of a review which could have allowed universities to charge varying fees to increase competition.

Mr Timothy - who quit as chief of staff after the disastrous election previous year - hailed the departure as opening the door to real change and said Ms Greening's successor must be "brave".

Justine Greening has also left her role as Minister for Equalities, in which she proposed making it easier to change legal gender by removing the requirement for a medical diagnosis. But she had "stalled as far as she could".

The Conservatives even included the pledge in their 2017 election manifesto, but the cap remained in place while Ms Greening was Education Secretary.

The columnist added: "Hinds must be fearless enough to do that, to ensure universities are better, fees are lower, and young people get the technical or academic education that suits them".

No 10 refused to say whether Mrs May and Mr Timothy had spoken recently but attempted to distance the PM from his comments.

She also called on religious groups to "keep up" with public opinion on same-sex marriage.
