British cabinet shake-up notable for who stays, not who goes

Warning the EU's current stance amounted to "potential breaches of the UK's rights as a member state", he said he would urge the European Commission's Brexit taskforce to withdraw the statements made so far, in light of the agreement reached in December to begin trade negotiations.

These scenarios are ones that the government has itself warned of, however Davis told the Prime Minister the government "cannot let these actions go unchallenged" - although was cautious about making any formal move.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will begin year with changes in her government.

A different man, junior immigration minister Brandon Lewis, was then confirmed to the role.

May's decision to keep them in post is in part a reflection of her need to balance Brexit-backing ministers like Johnson and Davis with more pro-EU politicians such as Hammond and Rudd. Green was third high office of his Government forced to leave office in less than two months, after Defense Minister Michael Fallon, embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal, and Priti Patel, Minister of International Development, who remained committed Meetings with Israeli officials behind prime minister's back.

But May has said that she still hoped to lead her Tory party into the next election, which must be called by 2022.

Downing Street has also announced that Jeremy Hunt, whose role was the subject of particular scrutiny, has been given the expanded brief of health and social care secretary, while Greg Clark remains as business secretary.

Hamstrung by her inability to move the "big beasts" and constrained by the need to preserve the fragile balance of power over Brexit around her Cabinet table, the United Kingdom prime minister largely stuck to the status quo, keeping the figures - or in Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, the most beastly figure from the vantage point of 10 Downing Street - who have made her life so hard these past 18 months in power. "I'm not someone who quits, I'm here for long term", he said at BBC.

Her shuffle was complicated by the resignation of the United Kingdom's minister for Northern Ireland amid a long-running political crisis in Belfast.

The Times' Sam Coates reports that Conservative Party staff tweeted the false news about Grayling and sent a Whatsapp message to MPs announcing the news on the basis of media speculation.

In a sign of just how fragile May's authority has become, an attempt to move her former ally, Justine Greening, from education to work and pensions ended with Greening refusing to take the new job and leaving government altogether.
