4.30pm Ben Brogan echoes my prediction last week that Oliver Heald and Theresa May are on Death Row.
4.36pm Fraser Nelson reckons Francis Maude is being offered another job in the Shadow Cabinet. He doesn't say what. I have Dominic Grieve pencilled in for Justice but Maude may get that I guess.
5.15pm Francis Maude is saying an emotional goodbye to CCHQ staff
5.16pm: Rumours that Sayeeda Warsi appointed to Community Cohension post and to be made a Peer
5.19pm Just posted in the comments...
The Conservative Leader, David Cameron, has announced a number of changes to his shadow cabinet, promoting women, bringing forward younger MP's and boosting the party's credibility on handling terrorism. Pauline Neville Jones, a career diplomat and former head of the Joint Intelligence committee, will become shadow secretary of state for security. Sayeeda Warsi, a british born muslim of Pakistani origin joins the top team in charge of community cohesion. It's believed that she is the first muslim to join the cabinet of any party. Both women will be elevated to the House of Lords as working peers. The Party Chairman, Francis Maude, has been demoted - and replaced by Caroline Spelman. David Willets, largely blamed for the row over grammar schools, has also been demoted - though he will remain in charge of higher education and skills. Michael Gove, a former Times Journalist long seen as a rising conservative star, will be in charge of children and schools. Jeremy Hunt joins the shadow cabinet in charge of culture. Nick Herbert will handle Justice. All three entered parliament at the last election.
Not sure of its veracity, but thought it worth alerting you to as it all sounds very plausible...
5.24pm ConHome saying Hugo Swire sacked and Maude to shadow Cabinet Office.
5.25pm ConHome reporting Owen Paterson to Northern Ireland replacing David Lidington who becomes Hague's Number Two. Very odd. Eric Pickles replaces Spelman at Local Government - good move.
5.29pm Still getting my head round Owen Paterson's appointment...
5.30pm No mention of the reshuffle so far on Sky News so far... Still seems odd to have acrried it today when the news is full of terror stories.
5.32pm And nothing on the Press Association either. Hmmm.
5.34pm Ben Brogan reckons Dame Pauline will not getting a Peerage...
5.48pm BBC News 24 has just said that Dame Pauline will be Shadow Secretary of State for Security. That cannot be right. Surely she will be part of David Davis's Home Affairs team?
5.50pm The Press Association says Dame Pauline will be David Cameron's "personal adviser" on security issues. So is she Shadow Homeland Security Minister or not?
6.45pm Grayling to Work & Pensions and Theresa Villers to Transport.
6.50pm Rumours of Ed Vaizey going to the Treasury team to replace Villiers. Con Home reports Duncan and Lansley staying put.
6.54pm Philip Hammond to be new Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
7.10pm: PA report: "As well as shadowing the Cabinet Office minister, Mr Maude will have a role overseeing the implementation of the Tories' policy programme". So that makes Letwin, Hague AND Maude doing something similar.
7.27pm Press Release from CCHQ: Francis Maude takes over the role of Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office in the Shadow Cabinet, looking at the implementation of our programme for government. George Osborne takes on the additional role of General Election Campaign Coordinator in addition to his responsibilities as Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer.
7.29pm Grant Shapps replaces Michael Gove, attending Shadow Cabinet as Shadow Housing Minister. Unclear whether he retains his campaigning responsibilities.
7.30pm: Baroness Anelay replaces Lord Cope as Chief Whip in the Lords. I worked with her in the Shadow Home Office team. Wonderful woman!
