The reshuffle may come as early as Monday although it will probably be a little after then. Noone outside of TeamDC's inner, inner ring either knows the timing or the content of the reshuffle, however. What we do know is what Tory members think of Cameron's top ministers. Here is the last ConHome Cabinet league table before Cameron does shuffle his pack.

A few notable observations:

  • Justine Greening hasn't been harmed by the Heathrow controversy. The opposite, in fact. She's now up to a net approval rating of +36.
  • Jeremy Hunt enjoys a bit of an Olympic bounce, returning to a small positive rating for the first time since he was accused of getting too close to Rupert Murdoch.
  • Patrick McLoughlin almost heads into zero territory, perhaps because of the rebelliousness of the parliamentary party (although it's hard to finger him as the main cause of that). 
  • Sayeeda Warsi is the main story on the front page of The Telegraph today, making a very public plea to remain Party Chairman. She remains the least popular Tory at the top table, however. Paul Goodman wrote about her future earlier.
