May’s appointment of hard line anti-EU people seems to indicate that she won’t tolerate anyone going wobbly on Brexit.
Michael Gove has been sacked as justice secretary and replaced by Liz Truss as Theresa May forms her new government, in her first full day as UK PM.
Education Secretary Nicky Morgan has also gone, replaced by ex-international development secretary Justine Greening.
Culture Secretary John Whittingdale has been sacked, while Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has stayed in his post.
On Wednesday Boris Johnson was made foreign secretary in a surprise move by Mrs May. Philip Hammond is chancellor.
Among Wednesday’s other cabinet appointments, Amber Rudd took over Mrs May’s former role as home secretary, Eurosceptic David Davis was made Brexit secretary and Liam Fox took up a new post of secretary of state for international trade. Michael Fallon was retained as defence secretary.
