Minister Cabrita: “everything he gets into turns into disaster”

Talking on SIC television last night, incisive political pundit Luís Marques Mendes has given a timeline for the removal from the government of Eduardo Cabrita – the minister whose name is consistently attached to PR disasters. ‘He’ll be gone in the next government reshuffle’, assures Marques Mendes, which will come after municipal elections in October. It’s not ideal, admits Marques Mendes, “because in everything he gets into, generally, disaster follows”. In the meantime, the fact that he is being allowed to stay at his post “contaminates and degrades the image of the State”.
