Failed Cabinet reshuffle leaves Theresa May looking weak as ever

British Prime Minister Theresa May

"So we take these words by the prime minister very seriously, and it is therefore only natural that in this house we also prepare for every eventuality".

Prime Minister Theresa may on Monday, January 8, intends to announce the government reshuffle.

An interim deal on Brexit in December 2017 appeared to give her new impetus, and the much-anticipated reshuffle was arranged.

It also comes as the prime minister tries to reset her leadership in the face of a resurgent opposition Labour party, which exceeded expectations in the snap election May called - and almost lost - last summer. It won't be easy and the new starters will need to hit the ground running.

But Philip Hammond, Boris Johnson, Amber Rudd and David Davis are among key figures expected to stay in place. It began when her de facto deputy and longest standing ally, Damian Green, resigned following allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior.

It is understood that May does not intend to appoint a first secretary of state in what has been billed as her biggest reshuffle since taking office in 2016.

The new minister will provide regular updates on preparation for leaving the bloc without a trade deal and have "a significant budget", the paper said.

The reshuffle, which will continue into tomorrow, is being seen as an opportunity for May to promote more women, with female ministers only now making up six of the 23 full members of her top team. "It will be soon".

Negotiations on a transition deal begin this month, while the toughest talks, on Britain's future relationship with the European Union including trade, are set to start in March.

Labour's shadow health secretary Jonathan Ashworth was scornful of the prospect of Hunt as deputy prime minister.

The shadow health secretary, Jon Ashworth, said: "The secretary of state for health should be here ... not pleading for a promotion in Downing Street".

But alongside Leadsom, Education Secretary Justine Greening, Conservative Party chairman Sir Patrick McLoughlin and Business Secretary Greg Clark are vulnerable.

After months of reshuffle speculation, when the time came, Theresa May's ministers couldn't be budged - not the ones that truly matter at least. Not only was she safe until Brexit was completed, they said, the negotiations could so enhance and fix her reputation that she might yet lead her party into the 2022 election.

"I'm not a quitter".

But pressed on the BBC1's Andrew Marr Show on whether she would still be there the next time the country goes to the polls, she replied: "Obviously I serve as long as people want me to serve".
