Truss is going to continue as Minister for Women and Equalties. How does the Foreign Secretary have any time with anything other than their own portfolio? Should lead to some interesting conversations with foreign leaders about their treatment of females in their countries. I'm sure she'll come down hard on Middle Eastern leaders about women's rights (well at least until they start to discuss the next arms deal).

This is the BBC’s political editor.

“Sending him to Justice is a match for his legal experience, he was a minister there before, and a senior lawyer. But the fact that it took a couple of hours suggests that he was not exactly thrilled with the move.”

It’s utter bollocks by the way. He spent about 10 minutes as a very junior lawyer before leaving for politics… the Director of Public Prosecutions on the other hand….

Laura Keunssberg… is she about to be confirmed as a government mouthpiece?

Nadhim Zahawi to education is certainly an upgrade and might actually be a decent appointment.

I would suggest over-promoted but presumably a reward for the vaccine success and his Brexit credentials.

I am sure SteveK can't spill all the beans, but can you answer one quick question... Is Liz Truss as thick in real life, as she comes across when talking on TV?

I'd agree. He is not an impressive individual in the slightest

Dunno what my spellchecker was up to there to confuse "Razors"
... with anything remotely associated with the Tories and a fine thinking poster like razorsedge, no guilt by association intended

Worked with him for a brief time when he was at YouGov. As a business leader he was good but not sure how that remotely qualifies him as education secretary.

Confident he’ll be better than Williamson though

Buckland is a loss; he seemed decent and thoughtful. The system is broken and needs a genuine advocate.

The courts need money; you can only squeeze so many sessions out of fee paid judges in nightingale courts, and video hearings are not as efficient as had been hoped.

I heard Raab formally speak once in a small setting and he came across as fairly normal and less rageful than he seems at most other times. But he was talking about his belief in the value of Brexit, which seemed sincerely held, and that's a massive red flag for me - in a field which ought to be dominated by actual evidence - as he clearly believed what he was saying about it.

He's quite short, too.

Ah, the good old days when we were content that saying stuff isn’t real when it is actually real.

“The Irish border question has got to stop being put forward as a red herring.

The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) produced a paper this week which showed quite clearly that this is being put forward as a red herring, which is being weaponised and is being used to obfuscate and make the negotiations more difficult”

Fiction is culture though I guess?
