Reshuffle latest: * Raab could be moved to MoJ or CDL, Gove or Truss tipped to replace him at FCDO * Williamson could lose job at DfE, not clear if he will remain in Cabinet * Patel said to be vulnerable * Jacob Rees-Mogg & Mark Spencer both said to be *safe*

Truss gets FCDO, and keeps “Women and Equalities”. She’s going to have fun dealing with Afghanistan, isn’t she!

....as has been done before, the spokesperson said. This is standard practice on other national days across the world, the Palace added. Her Majesty in all dealings with other Heads of State acts on the advice of the FCDO, the spokesperson said.

One of the things I’m looking forward to is @trussliz making mincemeat of @lisanandy at FCDO questions!! 👍

So, to recap (for my benefit and yours) — so far we have: 🥾 SACKED Williamson/DfE Jenrick/MHCLG Buckland/MoJ Milling/Party Co-Chair 👍 SAFE Sunak/HMT Patel/HO ➡ MOVES Gove/CO to MHCLG Truss/DIT to FCDO Raab/FCDO to MoJ

@btharris93 1. FCDO 2. DEFRA 3. DHCLG To be honest those three are interchangeable. DIT and DoD as honourable mentions.

@MahyarTousi Nadhim would be good at BEIS and FCDO. I wonder if Anne-Marie Trevelyn could be the new Party Co-Chairman. Nadhim or Anne-Marie are great candidates for Co-Chairman.

A bit facetious but does highlight a key Truss weakness - poor public speaking. Leading FCDO is ofc a diplomatic role, so will be interesting to see if much change there

An interesting combination of ministerial briefs (obviously already including international development within FCDO) but I’m not exactly holding my breath for a feminist foreign policy.

Truss to FCDO - happy she gets the recognition of a promotion but sad to lose her at Trade.

Behold, world, the new FCDO secretary [Facepalm] ... #Reshuffle

This would have been an ideal moment to also unify the DIT with the FCDO I think. Oh well, Truss will still be good, either way!

The FCDO is a super department (so in itself a lot going on already), yet Liz Truss still keeps equalities? Tells you how much the Tories care about Equalities, a side thing, for whenever you’ve free time if ever.

My immediate response to the ongoing reshuffle is THANK GOD Dominic Raab has been moved from the FCDO where he has inflicted huge damage in many important areas that are not always visible. He was also hugely disliked in the Office.

Is it common to give the Foreign Secretary a second ministerial post? The FCDO surely demands undivided attention.

🆕 Here are all the details on Liz Truss promotion from DIT to FCDO:

@DavidHenigUK @SamuelMarcLowe Any chance trade gets wrapped up into super-charged FCDO?

@ElderGrizzly @bbclaurak That’s nice to hear, there is nothing wrong with the guys at FCDO that some mass sackings or redundancies can’t put right.

Is she taking the uncomfortable chair from @tradegovuk to @FCDO with her?

Huge congratulations to @trussliz on her well-deserved appointment to head @fcdo. She has been by far the most impressive cabinet minister since the election and so it was only a matter of time. #Reshuffle

Perhaps too a greater focus of selling British goods and services and promoting international trade. Which the FCDO thinks is all a bit grubby and tradesman like for diplomats biting down on the Ferroro Rocher and exchanging apercus at the Ambassadors Reception:

Truss to FCDO. Widely seen as having delivered on trade in the past year with Japanese and Australian deals landing. Same realm but a step up into the big offices of state.

Gove in. So… could he end up in housing and communities. He wanted FCDO, but so did Truss, who went in before him. And… now Dowden into No 10 (RTS speech I was told by a source now on Zoom), so will be be promoted to education sec?

Dominic Raab moves from the FCDO to the Ministry of Justice. More analysis to follow on the IfG #reshuffle live-blog

Despite what some tell you, this is clearly not a demotion. Certainly not the high profile FCDO, but definitely equal to the CDL.

Questions: 1. Why free up the FCDO? 2. Does Gove perceive this as a win/loss for his ranking? 3. Did Raab get everything he demanded?

Confirmed by @KateEMcCann Raab is new justice sec and deputy PM. Demoted from FCDO but retains role as deputy to PM
