Home Minister Suella Braverman was sacked by Rishi Sunak on Monday. He was replaced by James Cleverley, the current Secretary of State.
Minutes after the announcement, David Cameron was spotted walking down 10 Downing Street. Promptly fueling speculation about his return to politics, the Cabinet Office confirmed on Monday morning that he would be offered the post of UK Foreign Secretary.
David Cameron, who was Prime Minister from 2010 to 2016, stepped down after the Brexit vote. Cameron was in favor of British EU membership, but was defeated when a majority of Britons voted to leave the union.
Home minister may quit after controversial statement
Sunak’s rock is called “massive” in the British media. The first announcement was that Home Minister Suella Braverman had to leave the government. Last week he wrote an op-ed in The Times criticizing police actions at a pro-Palestinian protest. He wrote that the police “permitted” some demonstrators and that they did not take tough enough measures against pro-Palestinian demonstrators.
Braverman was accused by party colleagues and political opponents of undermining confidence in the British police.
