Rishi Sunak has furnished his new cabinet with some new faces, kept some from the last administration and resurrected some from the past.

As anticipated, Jeremy Hunt has been reappointed as Chancellor while James Cleverly will remain foreign secretary and Ben Wallace will stay as defence secretary, despite both backing Boris Johnson.

But in what can only be described as deeply humiliating for Penny Mordaunt, his one-time rival, she was not given a role in a big department, such as the Foreign Office, that she and her supporters were expecting. Instead, she will continue as leader of the House of Commons and Lord President of the Council.
