Cabinet reshuffle: Who’s set for promotion and who will be axed? : The Telegraph

Theresa May is poised to appoint her new Cabinet this afternoon after announcing her intention to form a minority Government with the support of the DUP.

With her authority hugely diminished the appointments will define her future and likelihood of hanging on as Prime Minister and avoiding another election

Before the General Election, reshuffle speculation centred how Theresa May was expected to use her renewed authority to wield the axe. Now it’s all about her survival.

Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary

What should she do about Boris Johnson?

Before the election Boris Johnson’s allies increasingly feared for his future as Foreign Secretary. Their concern centred around the fact that Mrs May needed him as a leading Brexit figure while she held a small majority – a thumping election victory would leave her to sell Brexit herself.

Now, the tables have turned. Mr Johnson represents her biggest threat, and is already odds on favourite to replace her if the Tories have a leadership contest. His allies say he will support her as she forms a minority Government but delivering a successful Brexit will be a red line.

Rumours abound about his future. At the very least he stays on as Foreign Secretary, but there are suggestions that Mrs May could make him her Deputy Prime Minister.

  2. I hope he becomes the next Tory leader, this twat will go from bungle to bungle, playing the fool and destroying everything he touches.
    With the result a new election will have to be called due to a lack of confidence in his leadership.

    Then we can have that Corbyn landslide.
