1. So that was the warmup, tomorrow is Johnson’s first actual day in Downing Street - first big job is to introduce himself to the country as Prime Minister - how will he pitch it at the podium?
2. Then recruit Cabinet - promising record number of women and ethnic minority ministers at the top table
3. As ever, it’s a risky jigsaw - can’t be resolved until Hunt’s position is - 2 men still talking, Foreign Sec doesn’t want demotion, would be happy to stay where he is - sources don’t deny he was offered Defence Sec and said no
4. Johnson’s team want it all resolved ASAP in time for first full Cabinet meeting on Thursday morning before his first statement to the Commons in the big job
5. Reshuffles often go awry (remember Hunt refused to move to Biz Sec when May tried) - incoming PM s in theory hold all the cards .. let’s see how the new Number 10 manages the next couple of days
6. Front pages coming.. then more in the morning
