Sajid Javid adopting the Tory 'power pose'
|Born||5 December 1969|
Rochdale, United Kingdom
|Alma mater||South Gloucestershire and Stroud College, University of Exeter|
Formerly the youngest Vice President of Chase Manhattan Bank and a Deutsche Bank board director, Sajid Javid has held roles in government as Economic Secretary to the Treasury, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, and since April 2018, Home Secretary.
On 12 June 2019, backed by Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson, Javid launched his campaign to succeed Theresa May as UK Prime Minister. On 24 July 2019, Boris Johnson became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and appointed Sajid Javid Chancellor of the Exchequer.
- “It will not be lost on those that have suffered the consequences of the last nine years of austerity following the 2008 financial crisis that the newly appointed chancellor profited from the greed that contributed to it.”
Demanding that Javid publish his tax returns, McDonnell questioned whether the chancellor benefited from a tax avoidance scheme while at Deutsche Bank. The Mail on Sunday reported in 2014 that Javid opted into a scheme known as “dark blue” that channelled bankers’ bonus payments through the Cayman Islands.
- "I will go no further in discussing the details of the accusations against Mr Assange either in the UK’s criminal justice system or in the US, but I am pleased that the situation in the Ecuadorean embassy has finally been brought to an end. Mr Assange will now have the opportunity to contest the charge against him in open court and to have any extradition request considered by the judiciary. It is right that we implement the judicial process fairly and consistently, with due respect for equality before the law. I commend this statement to the House."
Extradition warrant signed
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today Programme on Thursday, 13 June 2019, Javid said:
- “He’s rightly behind bars. There an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow.”
Javid’s decision opens the way to the court sending the WikiLeaks founder to America. He said:
- “It is a decision ultimately for the courts, but there is a very important part of it for the Home Secretary and I want to see justice done at all times and we’ve got a legitimate extradition request, so I’ve signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts.”
On the same programme, Sajid Javid was asked why Downing Street rejected a request from his office to attend last week's lavish state banquet for Donald Trump at Buckingham Palace. He replied:
- "I don't know. I've asked but I was just told that normally Home Secretaries aren't invited so I don't know."

And this systematic failure of London’s media to report the key facts in this story begs the question: why have we not been told the full story?|
