Jonathan Isaby has written about how odd it is that Downing Street cannot yet supply a list of Ministerial appointments. It's extraordinary that filling the posts is taking so long.
Yesterday we heard that Chloe Smith, Brooks Newmark, Philip Dunne, Michael Fabricant and Angela Watkinson had been appointed junior whips. And then in the evening came the news that James Brokenshire, who last week had been told he would not be in the government, is to be a junior Home Office Minister after all. And quite right too.
There are still quite a few Lords appointments to be made, along with the announcement of several peerages across the parties.
Obviously when one is dealing with two parties these things are bound to take longer, but I hope the full list can be released before too long.
