Boris Johnson reshuffles top UK government squad



England Education Secretary Gavin Williamson and Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab were among the victims as Prime Minister Boris Johnson reshuffled his cabinet on Wednesday.

Mr Raab was dismissed from his post and demoted to the Department of Justice to replace Robert Buckland. As consolation, Mr Raab was given the roles of Deputy Prime Minister and Lord Chancellor.

He was replaced by International Trade Secretary Liz Truss, who becomes only the second woman to assume the role of Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Mr Williamson showed courage after being replaced by Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi while Oliver Dowden traded his post as Culture Secretary to become party co-chair, with Nadine Dorries taking his role.

Speaking after his sacking, Mr Williamson, who has faced repeated calls to resign before this day for his handling of disruption to schools during the pandemic, said he was “proud” of the “transformational reforms that he is taking. I carried out in education after 16 years: in higher education institutions, our skills program, apprenticeships and more ”.

Elsewhere, Michael Gove has made a departmental return, replacing Robert Jenrick at the Department of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
