David Cameron presumably put some thought into his choices

Let's meet the dream team.

Nicky Morgan voted against gay marriage.

She has been made the new equalities minister.

Philip Hammond didn't know the difference between Saddam Hussein and Bashar al-Assad.

He has been made the new foreign secretary.


Lord Hill has been made the new European commissioner.

Despite three weeks ago saying he didn't want the job.

Greg Clark is the new science minister.

He has supported homoeopathy.

Stephen Crabb is the new Welsh secretary

He previously described the position as "meaningless".

Liz Truss is the new environment secretary.

She is a former Shell employee who voted to sell off public forests.

Michael Gove is the new chief whip.

He has labelled his critics "the Blob" and himself been likened to an "evil entity". He is also not exactly known for his powers of persuasion.

All in all, it was one of David Cameron's more successful reshuffles.
