Reshuffle due

Looks like Boris is about to do a reshuffle. Raab, Williamson and Patel are apparently 'at risk' of being demoted while Truss and Gove are likely to get promotions.

If Raab and Patel are sent to be back benches wonder how much trouble they may cause. Raab is desperate to be PM one day so I doubt it would take it laying down.

When you only have a choice of around 300 people who's only skill is to win a local popularity contest you are always going to hope and pray that the civil service is ready to handle whatever is thrown at them.
Not even that, in many areas all they have to be able to do is to pin on the right colour rosette.

Let's hope the civil servants doing the actual work, know what they're doing.

We'll there's more chance than in theory you win an election on a Thursday, get promoted to head of the military on Sunday and be expected to know the correct load for a z76 missile going over 100km of land 5 mins after finding out that you have the job.. Its the same as the price of a loaf test.

He was not in the Chamber for PMQs either. Raaab was missing as well (although he might have nipped off for a quick holiday)

Patel, Raab and Williamson, Dumb Dumber and Dumbest must surely be getting the chop. What is maybe worrying is there anyone on backbenches or existing ministers, that are any better. Must be the worse set of MP's for many decades

The usual way to reshuffle is to deal with the sackings first. It was said on Politics Live that Johnson is using his Parliamentary office (behind the Speaket's Chair for the reshuffle (to avoid the Walk of Shame). But he is now back at No.10, so have all of the sackings taken place?
