McLoughlin to Transport, Paterson to DEFRA, Greening to DfID Warsi Gets a Made Up Job, Miller to DCMS

Former chief whip Patrick McLoughlin has been appointed Transport Secretary. As Guido noted last night:

UPDATE: Warsi gets a made up job:

UPDATE II: 

UPDATE III: Maria Miller to goes to Culture, Media and Sport leaving the fight on between Fallon and Shapps for Party Chairman.
