David Cameron makes surprise return to UK politics

By Ella Carey

Former British Prime Minister David Cameron made a surprise return to frontline politics, seven years after he resigned as a Member of the British Parliament (MP).

He’ll take a seat in Britain’s House of Lords as he’s not an elected politician. His official title has been confirmed as: Lord Cameron of Chipping Norton.

As part of a wider reshuffle of his top team, Rishi Sunak sacked his Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, after she criticised the police’s handling of a pro-Palestinian march.  

Suella Braverman published a scathing letter sent to the Prime Minister following her sacking calling him “uncertain” and “weak”.

She said Rishi Sunak’s repeatedly failed to deliver on pledges he made to secure his support for Tory leadership a year ago.

Since he obtained the role on Monday (November 13) David Cameron took a two day trip to Ukraine to meet the country’s president. That trip was followed with a visit to neighbouring Moldova.

The Reshuffle

Having served as foreign secretary since September last year, upon being appointed by then prime minister Liz Truss, James Cleverly will now move to the Home Office as home secretary.

Victoria Atkins, the former Financial secretary, takes on Steve Barclays original role as Health secretary.

Following this, Steve Barclay became Secretary for environment, food and rural affairs.

Laura Trott fulfils the role as Chief secretary to the Treasury. Richard Holden plays the part of Conservative Party chairman and minister without portfolio.
