UK new PM Theresa May: Cabinet reshuffle reveals a sharp ‘right’ turn

Theresa May has officially become Prime Minister and made a bold move by appointing staunch Brexit campaigner Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary.
Philip Hammond has been named chancellor of the exchequer. Hammond served as foreign secretary in the David Cameron government from 2014 to 2016, while previously heading the defence and transport ministries. He replaces George Osborne.
Amber Rudd took Mrs May’s old position as Home Secretary, while Michael Fallon was kept on as Defence Secretary.
Prominent Brexit supporters David Davis and Liam Fox took on the new briefs of Minister for Brexit and Secretary of State for International Trade respectively.
After her formal appointment by the Queen, Mrs May promised to lead a “one-nation’ government dedicated to social justice and making ‘Britain a country that works for everyone’.
Alluding to the tough negotiations that lie ahead over Britain’s exit from the European Union, she said, “we face a time of great national change”.
But she said Britain would “rise to the challenge’ and forge ‘a bold new positive role’ in the world.
