Jan 12 2018 by Desiree Burns
British Prime Minister Theresa May's long-awaited government reshuffle on Monday was branded ineffectual and shambolic after she promoted few fresh faces to her top team and a minister resigned rather than accept a new post.
May's New Year's objective is to convey message that his Government's field of action does not end in Brexit, in face of a year in which local elections await in spring, in which Labour Party expects to see its good performance in L As surveys.
The Times' Sam Coates reports that Conservative Party staff tweeted the false news about Grayling and sent a Whatsapp message to MPs announcing the news on the basis of media speculation. A replacement immigration minister has not yet been named.
The first woman to get a junior-level promotion was Caroline Dinenage, who was also made a minister of state for health. 2015 intake MP James Cleverly has joined him as deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party.
"After all, it was Theresa May herself who said in her Lancaster House speech in January 2017, and repeated in her Florence speech in September, that "no deal for Britain is better than a bad deal for Britain, it is right that the government should prepare for every eventuality".

Justine Greening, the state-schooled education secretary who was the target of a blizzard of negative briefing in recent days about her closeness to the teaching unions and outspokenness in cabinet, was also inside No 10 for well over an hour as May apparently sought to move her.
May confirmed on Sunday (7) that she would be making ministerial changes, but refused to disclose details. And it couldn't have been more different from the brutal reshuffle of July 2016 that saw her dispatch heavyweights including George Osborne and Nicky Morgan to the backbenches. Adding "housing" to Sajid Javid's job title, when he already had powers over the policy area, appeared to be more about optics than practicalities.
Johnson, a leading Brexit supporter, kept his job at the foreign office, despite challenging May's strategy in 2017, as did fellow eurosceptic Liam Fox, the worldwide trade minister.
May called last year's general election in hopes of strengthening her hand ahead of all-important Brexit negotiations.
