What Do the New Tory Cabinet Members Stand For?

The new Prime Minister Liz Truss handed top cabinet jobs to ultra-loyalists just hours after succeeding Boris Johnson.

The experienced big names who supported Rishi Sunak in the leadership race have been cleared out.

Also vanquished are Johnson’s once-powerful Vote Leave clique, Michael Gove, Dominic Raab and Priti Patel.

For the first time in British political history, none of the four great offices of state - PM, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Home Secretary and Foregin Secretary are held by white men.

Here's what each of the new main Tory cabinet members stand for and why Truss chose to promote them.
