ITV Meridian's Political correspondent Phil Hornby gives us his views on Theresa May's latest recruits:
The formation of Theresa May's government has taken longer than most people thought. It has in effect been the most extensive government reshuffle anyone can remember.
More winners and losers from our region have been named today. Brighton Kemptown MP Simon Kirby gets an important job as Economic Secretary to the Treasury, working alongside the new Chancellor Phil Hammond.
Reading West MP Alok Sharma gets his first ministerial job and it will certainly be interesting: he'll be working with Boris Johnson at the Foreign Office.
Bracknell MP Phillip Lee, who impressed MPs with his witty response to the Queen's Speech in May gets a job at the Justice Department. An even wittier speech on the same occasion a few years ago by Portsmouth North MP Penny Mordaunt was what launched her ministerial career. Other new ministers include Nicola Blackwood from Oxford West and Abingdon (Health) and Caroline Nokes from Romsey and Southampton North (Work and Pensions).
Robert Syms from Poole and Steve Brine from Winchester become whips. Their role will be to make sure legislation gets through despite the government's very small majority.
There's a key job too for George Hollingbery from Meon Valley: he'll be Mrs May's PPS - in other words her eyes and ears among the Tory back benchers.
New Forest MP Desmond Swayne and Canterbury MP Julian Brazier are among the ministers to lose their jobs. They are both gents who, though disappointed, can be relied on to cheerfully support the new Prime Minister. The danger for Mrs May is that other people she's sacked - from Messrs Osborne and Gove downwards - won't be quite so loyal.
Chichester Cathedral is staging an exhibition by acclaimed sculptor and artist Ana Macheco - looking at the plight of refugees.
The Cathedral’s entire North Transept has been taken over by a powerful set of sculptures, called "Shadows of the Wanderer. The artist says it "depicts a scene that resonates with some of our most pressing contemporary issues."
It deals with current debates about exile, migration, and the displacement of people who are trying to escape persecution. The exhibition is accompanied by a programme of supporting events, including new ‘People on the Move’ workshops uniquely developed with Amnesty International UK, specifically to explore the refugee experience.
Kate Allen, Director of Amnesty International UK, says: ‘We are delighted to be supporting this timely and poignant installation at Chichester Cathedral – visitors will experience not just their own reaction to the two desperate figures that flee, but also the varied and complex reactions of the other carved figures that witness their suffering. How we choose to respond to refugees is one of the most important questions on our national and international agenda.’
Events to support ‘Shadows of the Wanderer’ include: 'The Representation of Suffering: the Work of Ana Maria Pacheco' Tuesday 19th July at 6.30pm. A lecture by Christopher Wintle, Honorary Senior Research Fellow/Emeritus Senior Lecturer, King's College, London. In the Cathedral, with free entry.
'People on the Move: Exploring Refugee Experience' Selected dates September to October A series of workshops for schools and colleges developed in partnership with Amnesty International UK.
‘Colin Wiggins in Conversation with Ana Maria Pacheco’ Thursday 6th October at 6.30pm.
The exhibition opened today (July 16th) and will remain on display until November 14th. Entry is free.
Our new Prime Minister has overcome some tough challenges on her way to the top. Theresa May became Home Secretary six years ago where she earned a reputation for being quiet, determined and unflappable.
So how will the challenges she faced as Secretary of State help her in her new role - and how will her past experience help her premiership?
Out with the old, and in the with the new. Goodbye to the EU, and hello to the vicar's daughter from Sussex - the Maidenhead MP, Theresa May. So much has happened on the political scene in the last three weeks. Whoever thought in June, that it would be May in July ?
On this month's Last Word, Helen Whately MP, the Faversham & Mid Kent Conservative; Anneliese Dodds MEP, the Labour euro-MP for South East England; and Tim Loughton MP, who represents the Conservatives in Worthing East & Shoreham debate what a Theresa May Government will look like.
