Cabinet reshuffle UK 2021: Boris Johnson continues to appoint new ministers as Liz Truss starts first day at new job


FRESHLY promoted Cabinet ministers are settling into their new posts – while junior MPs are anxiously waiting to learn if they’ve got a job.

New Foreign Secretary Liz Truss beamed as she sat pride of place beside Boris Johnson in the Commons earlier today.

And Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries hit the ground running with a session in Parliament – just hours after being appointed in a brutal reshuffle.

The PM yesterday took an axe to his Cabinet by demoting Dominic Raab and sacking four ministers including gaffe-prone Gavin Williamson.

He has temporarily paused the shake-up of junior positions while he meets foreign leaders in Downing Street.

On a second dramatic day of his surprise reshuffle the PM is set to chop and change another series of key ministerial posts.

Long-serving schools minister Nick Gibb has been given the chop in a move that stunned Westminster.

And this morning ex Cabinet heavyweight Penny Mordaunt was also shifted from her role as Paymaster General to trade minister.

Defence secretary Ben Wallace insisted colleagues weren’t sacked for “incompetence” but because the PM wanted to “bring on talent”.
