British PM resumes reshuffle after chaotic start

British PM resumes reshuffle after chaotic start

After a hard start when her party had to delete a tweet naming the wrong person as its new chairman, May went on to promote more women, black and younger lawmakers to challenge critics who call the Conservatives "male, pale and stale".

His replacement was announced on Twitter, only for the tweet to be nearly immediately deleted.

Lewis was appointed housing and planning minister in July 2014 by then PM David Cameron.

David Lidington was appointed as minister for the cabinet office, replacing May's closest friend in parliament, Damian Green, who was forced to resign previous year over misleading statements over pornography found on his computer.

"No wonder Theresa May's struggling to negotiate Brexit - she can't even organise a reshuffle", tweeted opposition Labour MP Stephen Kinnock. Sir Patrick had only been chairman since 2016 but was widely blamed for last year's election result, where the Tories lost their majority.

He also drew fire after a protester interrupted May's speech to the party conference in October - an address that was also marred by a coughing fit and a collapsing set.

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.

Despite winning agreement from the European Union to move Brexit talks to a discussion of future trade and a transitional deal, May has been criticised at home for her approach to healthcare, housing, transport and Britain's departure from the bloc. He has also been made minister without portfolio.

Meanwhile, the Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire has resigned on health grounds. He has failed to bring together feuding political parties in the British province, where the devolved government collapsed a year ago nearly to the day.

Former Tory chairman Grant Shapps, who was accused of trying to oust Mrs May after last June's disastrous election for the Conservatives, told BBC Newsnight: "Clearly, to be blunt, it wasn't a brilliantly executed performance with the reshuffle today". "I was trade minister for 30 minutes".

The Prime Minister is also believed to want more women and MPs from ethnic minorities in her team with Suella Fernandes, the leader of the backbench Eurosceptics, Seema Kennedy and Rishi Sunak among those who could enter the Government for the first time.
