Theresa May-DUP under pressureTheresa May has reshuffled her cabinet amid continuing speculation about her future in Downing Street, as the Conservatives attempt to hold on to power with the support of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

Talks about a confidence-and-supply agreement between the two parties will resume on Monday in London following discussions in Belfast on Saturday.

Last night’s reshuffle saw the surprise return of Michael Gove as environment secretary and the appointment of Damian Green, a close friend and ally of the prime minister’s, as first secretary of state.

Ms May, who sacked Mr Gove when she took office last year, rejected the suggestion that his appointment was a reflection of her weakness after the election.

“What I’ve done today is see people from across the party accepting the invitation to be in my cabinet, and crucially I’ve brought in talent from across the whole of the Conservative Party. I believe that’s important. This is a government that is going to be governing for everyone, we want a country that works for everyone,” she told Sky News.
