“It will be the biggest expansion of policing – probably – ever,” according the Policing Minister.

We’ll continue to update this as the Prime Minister fills out the lower ranks of his government.
The key to promotion in this shuffle wasn’t primarily having backed Leave – it was supporting Johnson.
Johnson is set to face an early general election. His Cabinet must be ruthlessly shaped to fight it – on a No Deal platform.
Its members must be signed up to leaving on October 31. Here’s a rough draft of what the top team might look like.
The vocation of the front-runner is not to mess up. And he hasn’t. Indeed, he has picked up support – and upped the pace.
Our survey identified 15,875 of them. Many of these could be redeveloped to provide new homes.
Now Malthouse withdraws from the leadership election. “There is an appetite for this contest to be over quickly.”
He leaves the field as the 1922 Committee agrees and announces rules for the conduct of the election.
We see no reason why the bottom three, say, shouldn’t fall out each time – rather than just the one, as previously.
“We have to carefully put together the governing party into a majority which will deliver a Brexit deal, which is what I did back in January.”
We need a range of policies, an understanding of the challenges and a solutions-based approach that will unite our Party – and our country.
His announcement on EU nationals – crafted to appeal to liberal Leavers, Remainers and Softer Brexiteers – has perfect pitch in terms of the coalition he is trying to build.
He, Raab and Gove are in the same order as last month – first, second and third. No other candidate reaches double figures.

He is up-front that: “One of the criticisms that’s been levelled at me today is that nobody knows who I am.”
There are no fewer than 11 candidates declared as we write, and at least eight others who might join the fray.
In a field this crowded and with an electorate so, er, sophisticated, make no assumptions about which names will be forwarded to Party members.
