Mei is planning a reshuffle in the British government

At the same time, it is expected that the Prime Minister will resign at least six members of the government.

Former justice secretary David Lidington took over the policy coordination role previously held by Green but did not inherit the title of May's deputy.

Far from asserting her authority, the cosmetic changes to the British prime minister's top team she unveiled on Monday highlight her failure to make her own political weather.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will begin reshuffling her cabinet today (8).

The reshuffle was meant to "refresh" May's team after a torrid 2017, when she called a snap election only to lose her parliamentary majority, and in which three of her senior ministers were forced to resign in scandals.

The most senior government ministers - including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Brexit Secretary David Davis, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, and Treasury chief Philip Hammond - all kept their jobs. Education Secretary Justine Greening quit the government, after refusing to take a new post, and was replaced by Damian Hinds.

"I think she is leaving the top people and the big departments in place, but they are having to look over their shoulders".

Hamstrung by her inability to move the "big beasts" and constrained by the need to preserve the fragile balance of power over Brexit around her Cabinet table, the United Kingdom prime minister largely stuck to the status quo, keeping the figures - or in Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, the most beastly figure from the vantage point of 10 Downing Street - who have made her life so hard these past 18 months in power.

After starting the two-year withdrawal process in March 2017, Britain struck a deal in December 2017 on the financial settlement with Brussels, as well as on expatriate rights and the Irish border. 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. According to analysts, the party could promote a younger generation of politicians to try to lure some of the youth vote that has gone to the opposition Labour Party. The Conservatives' official media account tweeted its congratulations to Brexiteer Chris Grayling as the Tory party's new chair - but staff rapidly had to backtrack and delete the message.

Northern Ireland secretary James Brokenshire revealed he was stepping down for health reasons.

"That reign of Conservative Party chairman lasted about 37 seconds", noted Sky News's Faisal Islam.
