David Davis accuses European Union of plotting to damage British interests, faces backlash

It is not envisaged to be satisfied with replacing resigned, as it did in cases of Fallon and Patel, but it is not likely that changes will affect main figures of government, such as Philip Hammond, Chancellor of Exchequer; Boris Johnson, head of Foreign Office; Amber Rudd, Interior proprietor, or David Davis, Minister of Brexit.

Damian Green was the third minister to leave the cabinet in a space of weeks, after the defence secretary and worldwide development minister both quit - all three following separate scandals.

United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May will switch up her Cabinet on Monday, Downing Street has confirmed.

Conservative party chairman Patrick McLoughlin will lose his job, with his replacement ordered to overhaul party operations in the wake of last year's election losses, according to The Times.

The two-day, drawn out affair that is a reshuffle of the British ministry, which involves those being promoted and often those being demoted arriving at 10 Downing Street before their next career move is announced, began with drama, when the Conservatives official twitter account wrongly announced the new party chairman.

It was some time before Brandon Lewis, the ebullient immigration minister, was formally given the post, as deadlines were missed and progress slipped.

He also drew fire after a protester interrupted May's speech to the party conference in October - an address that was also marred by a coughing fit and a collapsing set.

May's decision to reshuffle her cabinet was a sign that she felt her internal position had improved enough to make some substantial changes to her top team without sparking a leadership crisis.

He said he would urge the European Commission's Brexit taskforce to withdraw the statements made so far, in light of the deal reached in December to begin trade negotiations.

David Lidington was appointed as minister for the cabinet office, replacing May's closest friend in parliament, Damian Green, who was forced to resign past year over misleading statements over pornography found on his computer.

Meanwhile Dominic Raab, justice minister and an ardent Brexit supporter, is tipped to be in line for a top job.

Davis has also been criticised by Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who described Mr Davis's "moaning" as "extraordinary" given the Government has set aside £3.7 billion to prepare to leave the European Union without an agreement, and has repeatedly stated that "no deal is better than a bad deal".

Theresa May would no doubt have liked to have reshaped her cabinet more - but while she is propped up by the DUP and has a party still split over Brexit, this is as much tinkering as she feels she is able to carry out.

Reports suggest May will seek to bring a wider range of talent into the cabinet, including more women, ethnic minorities and younger members.

The Prime Minister said she wanted to lead the Conservatives into the next general election - due to take place in 2022 - saying: "I'm not a quitter".

He was replaced by Karen Bradley, who had been serving as culture secretary.

The UK delegation will include Nigel Farage, an MEP, who said on British radio on Sunday that he represented "the views of the 17.4 million people who stood up against the establishment" to vote to leave the EU.
