No clearer signal could be sent that the Haltemprice and Howden MP is out on his own. But the promotion will lose Raab some friends even as it delivers a new gain in status.
Our snap survey. Three in five Party members believe May’s new Brexit plan represents a bad deal for Britain.
And the same proportion don’t support it. This mirrors the Leave/Remain divide which the survey found before the EU referendum.
If no deal is better than a bad one, the sum of this policy is certainly a bad deal. Tory leavers now face a bleak choice.
What may count most today is not whether the water simmers over, but whether his temper and patience do instead – or first.
Meanwhile, Williamson and Johnson’s approval ratings are in the doldrums.
It’s a close-run thing, with fewer than 20 votes in over a thousand separating these two Big Beasts among potential contenders.

What changed? When did we lose the global vocation that infused the Cabinet, Leavers and Remainers alike, two years ago?
Grieve is right. The logic of a Government defeat today leads to a change of leadership – and a general election
Neither Tory MPs nor voters want a poll, but a paralysed Government and Parliament would make one all but unavoidable long before 2022.
Steven Woolfe: To win the working class northern vote, the Conservative Party must change its attitude and tone
The issue lies in the Party’s image and how it communicates with voters, not the actual message.
