Amid criticisms, British PM Theresa May reshuffles cabinet

Nick Timothy left chief aide at No 10 last year is still in contact with ministers and earned a rebuke from Jo Johnson

Greening was sacked after she refused to move from Education to Work and Pensions, where she would have become the face of the Conservatives' welfare reforms.

Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson tweeted: "Sorry to see @JustineGreening leave government - she brought her non-nonsense, northern accountant's eye to every brief and is a real role model for LGBT+ Conservatives".

The Prime Minister Theresa May attempted to exert her personal authority on Monday by carrying out a cabinet reshuffle. She is reportedly preparing to move or sack at least half a dozen cabinet ministers on Monday, ahead of a shake-up of junior ministers on Tuesday.

Work and pensions minister David Gauke is now justice secretary.

She had been offered the role after being replaced as Education Secretary by Damian Hinds in a cabinet reshuffle.

Everybody needs to be reminded of Esther McVey vs Glenda Jackson.Esther McVey has been reappointed to the Department of Work and Pensions despite being forever associated with some of its cruellest measures against disabled people.

On the weekend Theresa May said that the controversialist who had made disparaging remarks about working class students, called for genetically modifying poor people, homophobic statements, appalling remarks about women's bodies - including MP's and scoffed about needing tissues but not for crying while watching charity appeals - had her full confidence in the role she had given him overseeing students' interests.

Former defence secretary Michael Fallon and former first minister Damian Green, who were felled by scandal, may feel a diminished sense of loyalty to the prime minister who hung them out to dry.

His resignation came a day after the prime minister had defended the journalist and free school supporter in the role amid doubts over his lack of education experience and criticism of past comments on social media.

In a letter to the prime minister, Brokenshire said he had a small lesion on the lung which required surgery.

Ex-culture secretary Karen Bradley has been moved to the politically sensitive Northern Ireland role vacated by Mr Brokenshire.

Overall, Cabinet ministers were more than five times more likely to have gone to a fee-paying school than the general population, the Sutton Trust analysis shows.

Jeremy Hunt is still healthcare minister - albeit with the additional responsibility of social care, after he fended off May's offer of a turbo-charged business secretary role for almost two hours.

There were no changes in the so-called big Offices of State which meant Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Amber Rudd, all kept their jobs.

Andrea Leadsom remains Leader of the House of Commons, despite widespread speculation that Mrs May could demote her. Grayling remained transport secretary.

The Times later reported that there had been "internal pushback" against Grayling, with o ther reports suggesting that the Conservatives had mistakenly announced Grayling's appointment due to it being reported by the BBC.

His replacement will be Brandon Lewis, who will be assisted by a new deputy chairman, James Cleverly, and a number of vice-chairmen, with various areas of responsibility. The original post on Twitter misspelled his new title, minister without portfolio, leaving out the "t" in "portfolio".
