while now but he's out? took a talk i think it was widely anticipated he would be going in this reshuffle, he had come under a lot of criticism for of exams in the summer of 2020, and has also made a number of gaffes, most recently appearing to mix—up having spoken to the rugby player maro itoje thinking he had spoken to the footballer marcus rashford. so these gaffes have not helped and it was widely anticipated helped and it was widely anticipated he would go in this reshuffle and of course he did. nadhim zahawi appears to be a bit of a rewards, he has been the vaccines minister before this, he was very much front and centre of the government's vaccine roll—out, fronting up some of the statements, some of the downing street news conferences, and it appears this is potentially better for award for nadhim zahawi for that one, stepping up to education secretary. one of his other colleagues in the department of health, nadine dorries, has also got a big promotion this afternoon, she
6:57 pm
now becomes the culture secretary, quite a big step up for her. she is not one known for being afraid to share her views, so that will be an interesting appointment. where we are expecting this, was this on the cards, reshuffle? certainly one this world, was that on the current? why is it coming now? i world, was that on the current? why is it coming now?— is it coming now? i think the size of it has been _ is it coming now? i think the size of it has been a _ is it coming now? i think the size of it has been a surprise. - is it coming now? i think the size of it has been a surprise. there l of it has been a surprise. there were some expectation he would try to freshen up his team, particularly when number 10 said this reshuffle was happening, they talked about it being to put together a cabinet to build back better. the idea that it should send signals about the future direction of the government and what's happening with that. but i'm not sure anyone expected it to be quite this widespread. having said that, a lot of the names and faces that, a lot of the names and faces that have been moved around are quite familiar, very few major surprises, very few promotions from lower down the tree, so we will have
6:58 pm
to wait and see what happens tomorrow or in following days when we see the more junior ministerial roles reshuffled. one really interesting point that it is worth flagging in the context of this idea of it being a cabinet that is about building back better is the appointment of michael gove as the secretary of state for housing, communities and local government. traditional, that's where people come into the cabinet. michael gove is a big hitter and someone who is seen good at getting things done. the fact he is moot to that department, which are the key role to play and things like boris johnson's level and promise and keep things like trying to push forward quite controversial planning reforms that are really upset a lot of tory backbenchers, i think that's significant and number 10 laptop you will have cross government responsibility for levelling up. thank you. now time for the weather. hello. the days are nowjust gradually getting shorter, but there is still some pleasant
6:59 pm
warmth to be found in the september sunshine, certainly through the next few days, and many of us will see some fairly decent doses of that. but autumn is approaching, and it's the season for us to see fog developing. and with a ridge of high pressure building up from the southwest, underneath on the axis on the middle of that ridge, conditions are right overnight into thursday for us to see some dense fog, i think, in a few locations across northern england, down into the welsh marches and the west country for first thing on thursday. a mild enough night, temperatures for many in double figures. for thursday daytime, a lot of fine weather to come. we should lose any early showers in the northeast of scotland, fog will tend to burn back. some generous sunshine come the afternoon, temperatures up to 21 or 22 degrees. but cloud will gather across northern ireland through the afternoon. it will start to usher in some rain by the evening. and that rain looks set to be quite heavy and persistent across the western side of the uk on friday.
7:00 pm
this is outside source. borisjohnson is rejigging his ministerial team. dominic raab, heavily criticised over his handling of afghanistan, has lost his job as foreign secretary but stays in cabinet. and gavin williamson, who oversaw education during last year's exam results chaos, has been sacked as education secretary. downing street says the reshuffle is aimed at putting in place a team to "build back better from the pandemic". we'll be live from westminster with the reaction. also in the programme: america's most decorated gymnast simone biles has testified before the senate about the abuse she and hundreds of other suffered at the hands of former team dr larry nasser.
