British PM May's Cabinet reshuffle turns into chaos

Bennie Garza | 12 January, 2018, 23:17

He was the third minister to leave the Cabinet in the space of a few weeks, after the defence secretary and worldwide development minister both quit - all three following separate scandals.

But now was the right time for her to try and renew - the start of a new year and one that will present many hurdles.

His replacement was announced on Twitter, only for the tweet to be swiftly deleted - with a different man, junior immigration minister Brandon Lewis, then being confirmed to the role.

He was also blamed for the disastrous party conference, where magnetic letters fell off during May's speech which was being televised live.

It's a key role both for Brexit and the stability of May's minority government as it will involve delicate negotiations over the Irish border and devolved government with the Democratic Unionist Party, whose lawmakers prop up the government after May lost her majority in June's vote.

Ms Greening has been replaced by employment minister Damian Hinds.

Ms. May's Downing Street office also said that widespread reports that Cabinet Ministers would discover their fate on Monday were not inaccurate.

Despite winning agreement from the European Union to move Brexit talks to a discussion of future trade and a transitional deal, May has been criticized at home for her approach to healthcare, housing, transport and Britain's departure from the bloc.

Prime Minister Theresa may on Monday, January 8, intends to announce the government reshuffle.

Johnson, a leading Brexit supporter, kept his job at the foreign office, despite challenging May's strategy in 2017, as did fellow eurosceptic Liam Fox, the global trade minister. Fellow eurosceptic Liam Fox, the global trade minister, was also expected to stay.

Her most senior ministers, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Finance Minister Philipp Hammond, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Home Secretary Amber Rudd are all safe - no surprise there really, as May can't afford to upset the pro- and anti-EU balance of her cabinet.

The Liberal Democrats' Alistair Carmichael said the reshuffle could be summed up as "nothing has changed", repeating words used by May at one of the lowest points in her election campaign when she was forced to change policy over social care.

The first official change of Monday was the announcement that close Theresa May ally James Brokenshire was taking the opportunity of the cabinet reshuffle to stand down from his position of Northern Ireland secretary, citing ill health.

In the headline clash, the PM accused Jeremy Corbyn of giving the impression that the NHS is failing everybody amid claims she was "too weak" to sack the Health Secretary. But the former justice secretary has not been given the title of first secretary of state, which marked Green out as Theresa May's effective deputy. He was replaced by the culture secretary, Karen Bradley, who will take on the hard task of attempting to resolve the impasse in the province between the Democratic Unionists and Sinn Fein which has seen no administration there for a year.
