politjobs job alert UK 2017-50 – Who to watch in 2018

Politico.eu published its annual “Who to watch in 2018” list. German liberal chief Christian Lindner tops the list as he pulled the plug on coalition talks in Germany and ensured his place at the center of the ensuing debate. The brain behind Brexit, U.K. Environment Secretary Michael Gove, came in second place. Gove’s vision for Britain after Brexit and his intellectual force in government have sparked rumors that he is being lined up to take over from Philip Hammond as chancellor of the exchequer. The European Parliament’s Brexit rapporteur Guy Verhofstadt is No. 10. Politico describes him as a dealmaker, but: “While he’s always ready to do a deal, there’s always a price tag attached. And if there’s one thing we’ve learned about negotiations so far, Britain doesn’t like Brexit price tags.” Of course, politicians aren’t alone in driving the European debate. Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, the Lithuanian conductor of the U.K.’s City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (No. 27) is on the list as well as the Tech’s dark prophet Evgeny Morozov. You might want to find yourself on the list for 2019 or you can look for an interesting job in this newsletter and as usual more on politjobs.uk!
