Cabinet Reshuffle LIVE: David Cameron returns to government as Foreign Secretary as Suella Braverman is sacked and James Cleverly takes over


James Cleverly is ‘honoured’ to be the new Home Secretary (but doesn’t mention Suella Braverman)

David Cameron made a shock comeback today as Rishi Sunak sacked Suella Braverman in a dramatic reshuffle.

The PM moved to oust Ms Braverman as he tries to restore his authority with potentially less than a year to a general election.

Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, a close ally of Mr Sunak with less trenchant views on the European Convention on Human Rights, is taking over in the Home Office.

In a decision that sent an earthquake through Westminster, David Cameron has been given a peerage and is filling Mr Cleverly’s old role. He is the first member of the Upper House to hold the role since Lord Carrington in the 1980s.

Just weeks ago Mr Cameron condemned Mr Sunak’s decision to downgrade the HS2 rail project. He is deeply distrusted by the Tory right after heading the Remain campaign, and also fostered closer relations with China as premier.
