Whitehall Whispers Say Tomorrow Morning

With the PM on his way back from holidays and apparently a “pretty full diary” after that, Whitehall sources whisper to Guido that they are expecting the “reasonable clear-out” to begin tomorrow morning. There is some talk of Cabinet being cancelled first thing Tuesday and the fun and games commencing then. This would make sense given the last thing the PM would want to do is sit round the table just before putting bullets in careers. But then he could just as easily make the calls tonight and convene his new team tomorrow morning. As PPS Jake Berry tweeted, and then deleted: “I hear Cabinet should be reshuffled by tonight with everyone else knowing on Tuesday.” Tick tock…

UPDATE:  The latter option of movements happening before Cabinet is looking more likely.

Quote of the Day

Rowan Atkinson tells The Times

“All jokes about religion cause offence, so it’s pointless apologising for them. You should really only apologise for a bad joke. On that basis, no apology is required.”
