British PM Theresa May plans Cabinet changes as Brexit enters new phase

Theresa May Theresa May Cabinet Reshuffle: First Departure is Ulster Minister Resignation, Citing Ill Health

Leading figures such as Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, Finance Minister Philip Hammond and Brexit Secretary David Davis are expected to stay in their roles.

In an embarrassing twist to a reshuffle beset with social media mistakes, Jeremy Hunt, who was kept on as Health Secretary with an extended social care role in the shake-up, was forced to explain why he had "liked" a tweet stating that Ms Greening had left the Government.

Farage asked for the meeting after Barnier met with anti-Brexit British politicians previous year, including Andrew Adonis, from the opposition Labour party, who had advised May on Brexit until he resigned from his post in December in protest at her appeasement of hard eurosceptics.

The Times' front page called the reshuffle "shambolic" while The Daily Telegraph declared it the "night of the blunt stiletto".

Asked about the findings this afternoon, a spokesperson for the prime minister said that "it's important the government reflects the country it serves".

Minimal changes were made to her cabinet in the days and weeks after the disappointing snap election last summer, but now May will look at who she wants around her as the United Kingdom continues its plans to withdraw from the EU.

This could further undermine Davis's authority after his Chief Negotiator Olly Robbins was removed from his team and taken to Downing Street.

May's room for manoeuvre is limited by heading a minority government and the need to maintain a delicate Cabinet balance of eurosceptic and pro-European ministers as major Brexit decisions loom.

Reports suggest that around half a dozen of her senior ministers could be axed or moved, with Number 10 sources indicating the more junior ministerial appointments would continue into a second day on Tuesday.

Her comments came as Downing Street sources indicated she would begin her expected reshuffle amid reports that a series of senior ministers are set to be axed or moved.

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 worldwide trade minister.

According to the newspaper, the new minister is likely to be placed in the ministry for Brexit and will work in parallel with Minister Davis Davis.

The reshuffle was prompted in part by the ousting of Damian Green, May's deputy and the de facto deputy prime minister.

While Patrick McGloughlin stood down as party chairman - a move many saw as unsurprising given the blame he faced for the Tories' election gamble and the PM's conference speech.

Departures from the Cabinet included Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire, replaced by outgoing Culture Secretary Karen Bradley.

"After all, it was Theresa May herself who said in her Lancaster House speech in January 2017, and repeated in her Florence speech in September, that "no deal for Britain is better than a bad deal for Britain, it is right that the government should prepare for every eventuality".
