Looks like the morning of the Long Knives in Downing St. BJ moving out some of the more hardline Brexiteers and possibly moving towards a more One-Nation cabinet outlook. The utterly useless Villiers and Leadsom both gone, as is apparently bombastic Geoffrey Cox. Also alas Julian Smith NI SOS, who seemed a man of empathy and ability and who achieved more in half the time than his numskulled predecessor Karen Bradley.

Johnson is turning down Brexit and turning up corporate welfare , limited regional investment, nationalism and authoritarianism

Smith the only competent SoS in over a decade will be interesting to see what talking head they get in next! Apparently the NI agreement blindsided the Govt they weren't expecting the legacy implications!

Javid gone as well it's a bloodbath!

Javid just resigned as chancellor with a budget due in 4 weeks! Maybe today not going quite to plan for Boris!

Serves Javid right; started out as a Remainer, until he decided his career would be better suited by switching to Leave.
Interesting back story though, seems his advisors didn't get along with Cummings who seems to be running the whole show. Going to be a few disgruntled back benchers about when this reshuffle is over. Long may it cause foment in the Tory party.

Doesn't seem to be the same furore about unelected Cummings pulling the strings compared the dark forces within Sinn Féin....

Is it possible old Boris is looking at events in Ireland (with Sinn Fein) and US (with Bernie), where a protest youth vote altered or is altering the political landscape, and has decided a more youthful cabinet is needed.

There will be when they find out that Cummings has an illegal private army.

Boris is safe for 5 years in power. Why would he worry or change tactics to appease any section of voters?

It was said by a lot of commentators that Boris would always shift tactics once in power, he can now appease himself, he was a reluctant leaver.

Freshening up your cabinet is hardly appeasing anyone.
