Boris Johnson has “appointed a new Cabinet” in an attempt to remain as Prime Minister for as long as he can in Downing Street.
Johnson is expected to make an announcement at 12:30pm on Thursday to the country tendering his resignation, but he will most likely remain in Downing Street until October, Ministers have claimed.
Johnson has appointed James Cleverly as the Education Secretary, Greg Clarke a the new Levelling Up Secretary following the Prime Minister sacking Michael Gove on Wednesday evening as he told his to resign.
Michelle Donelan resigned after just 48 hours following her appointment of being the new Education Secretary which was a humiliating hammer blow for Johnson, now Cleverly is in the role.
Clarke who took over Gove’s position and is a strong ally of Johnson told The Telegraph, Gove “has just always been treacherous, disloyal, self-obsessed, untrustworthy – pick whichever you like.”
A Number 10 source told the BBC, “You cannot have a snake who is not with you on any of the big arguments who then gleefully briefs the press that he has called for the leader to go.
“You cannot operate like that.”
The policing Minister Kit Malthouse in now new Chancellor for the Duchy of Lancaster, which was formerly Gove’s position.
Robert Buckland will now be the new Welsh Secretary making a comeback after being sacked as the justice secretary by Johnson.
