Theresa May has finalised her cabinet as the new UK Prime Minister, by shuffling, firing and hiring across her whole Cabinet team, including the ‘big’ jobs of Chancellor of the Exchequer, Foreign Secretary and Home Secretary.
Those fired include George Osborne, Michael Gove, John Whittingdale, Nicky Morgan and Oliver Letwin.
With all of the key cabinet appointments now announced, we can see how Prime Minister Theresa May has balanced her cabinet for the brexit negotiations and for the next few years. Here’s the list of the cabinet:
International Trade Secretary – Liam Fox
Chancellor of the Exchequer – Philip Hammond
Foreign Secretary – Boris Johnson
Home Secretary – Amber Rudd
Defence Secretary – Michael Fallon
Health Secretary – Jeremy Hunt
Secretary of State for Exiting the EU – David Davis
Justice Secretary – Liz Truss
Education Secretary – Justine Greening
Secretary of State for International Trade – Liam Fox
Transport Secretary – Chris Grayling
Chief Whip – Gavin Williamson
Conservative Party chairman – Patrick McLoughlin
Leader of the House of Lords – Baroness Evans
Leader of the House of Commons -David Lidington
Culture Secretary – Karan Brady
International Development -Priti Patel
Communities and Local Government – Sajid Javid
Work and Pensions – Dominic Green
Scottish Secretary – David Mundell
Welsh Secretary – Alan Cairns
Northern Ireland Secretary – James Brokenshire
2nd placed Andrea Leadsman in the tory party race has earned herself the spot as Environment secretary.
Controversial Jeremy Hunt maintains his spot as the Health Secretary.
Boris Johnson is the new Foreign Secretary which is a surprise to many after his Vote Leave campaigning and claims by people saying he constantly ‘lied’.
Amber Rudd replaces the new Prime Minister Theresa May as Home Secretary.
David Davis has been announced as the first ever ‘Brexit Secretary’ that will help lead the negotiations for the UK exit from the European Union.
Dr Liam Fox also becomes the first ever ‘International Trade Secretary’, so it is clear that it has been a Brexit motivated cabinet shuffle by Theresa May. ‘Brexit is Brexit’ after all.
What do you make of the newly made changes to the Conservative cabinet of UK Governance?
Will these newly appointed Cabinet MP’s get the best ‘Brexit’ outcomes for the UK, in terms of mainly trade? Who else would you have rather seen enter the Cabinet and in what roles? Is the UK now set to negotiate an EU exit?
