Cabinet Reshuffle: David Davis keeps Brexit Secretary role

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May leads her first Cabinet meeting of the new year at 10 Downing street in central London on Tuesday. — AP

But that was as good as it got for the prime minister.

The year ahead promises to be fraught for a prime minister who has lurched from crisis to crisis for months.

It has also been reported that Justine Greening, the education minister, and Business Secretary Greg Clark could be moved to other positions in the cabinet.

May also demonstrated her natural caution.

The most senior government ministers - including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Brexit Secretary David Davis, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, and Treasury chief Philip Hammond - all kept their jobs.

When she finally emerged, it was to confirmation that she had quit the government after refusing May's suggested move to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

May's most eye-catching move was the revamp of the personnel at Conservative Campaign Headquarters.

NVIDIA (NVDA) Given Coverage Optimism Score of 0.09
Class A (NYSE:CE) by 8,000 shares in the quarter, leaving it with 38,200 shares, and cut its stake in Exlservice Holdings Inc. On Tuesday, October 10 Shoquist Debora sold $6.34 million worth of NVIDIA Corporation ( NASDAQ : NVDA ) or 33,498 shares.

"One is to demonstrate that she did indeed have a degree of authority as prime minister - the authority that has been weak ever since last June when she lost the overall majority in the snap election that she called".

Mr. Lewis will take over from veteran Minister Patrick McLoughlin, who had been criticised by some members for failing to broaden the appeal of the party.

"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".

Keith Simpson, a long-serving Conservative backbencher, said the reshuffle would be a "play in two acts", with May expected to move junior ministers on Tuesday. "There will be new people brought in that either she, or if she stands down or something goes wrong, her successor can then use". It won't be easy and the new starters will need to hit the ground running. According to analysts, the party could promote a younger generation of politicians to try to lure some of the youth vote that has gone to the opposition Labour Party.

In the end, the reshuffle was forced on May.

The reshuffle was meant to "refresh" May's team after a torrid 2017, when she called a snap election only to lose her parliamentary majority, and in which three of her senior ministers were forced to resign in scandals.

Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire, who failed to secure a deal to restore the power-sharing government in Belfast after it collapsed a year ago, stepped down for health reasons on Monday and has been replaced by culture minister Karen Bradley.
