Something else may also raise their spirits over the holiday if they have kept their eyes in the rumblings from Whitehall. There are rumours that the cabinet reshuffle in September may see Michael Gove moved to the Home Office to replace Theresa May.
Initially, the tip off that in this public school educated cabinet, his successor may be a working class woman who was educated at a comprehensive school, may raise spirits even more but a closer look at Elizabeth Truss may make them pause for thought. She has lambasted her own comprehensive education and spoken against 'soft' A level subjects and modular assessment, Both her parents were public sector workers, left-wing and CND supporters and many of her teachers at her Leeds comprehensive were left-wing.
She rejected all this to become an admirer of Margaret Thatcher, completing a GCSE project on her downfall entitled 'End of an Era'. Will it be the end of an era for some of Michael Gove's obsessions or will Truss take up his baton with relish?
Watch this space.

Will she take a supporting role?!
She'd be somewhat perfect in this coalition government. Former President of Oxford's Lib Dem Society...
