Brexit: 'Lazarus-like' Amber Rudd urges Tory dissenters to pull back

Stephen Barclay has been promoted to Brexit Secretary

Around 20 Tory MPs have publicly called for a vote of no confidence in the prime minister, with more thought to have written to the chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee to call for a vote on her leadership. This is a poisoned chalice in a government that is unlikely to survive until Christmas.' Ms Abbott said: 'Amber Rudd resigned because of her mismanagement of Windrush scandal.

According to the paper, Michael Gove and other Leave-supporting ministers made a decision to stay in their posts to lead the campaign for a "better Brexit" from inside the cabinet.

The comments come after a tumultuous week that saw the departure of ministers from Mrs May's cabinet including Brexit secretary Dominic Raab and work and pensions secretary Esther McVey.

Mr Barclay's job will be limited to the domestic delivery of European Union withdrawal, preparations for Brexit either with or without a deal and shepherding legislation through Parliament.

Mrs May agreed a draft withdrawal agreement for Brexit with her cabinet on Wednesday, which had already been signed off by negotiators from both the United Kingdom and EU.

"There is really important work to do at the Department for Work and Pensions implementing the universal credit programme".


She was elected to parliament in 2010, and joined the UK's Department of Energy and Climate Change in 2014, becoming the head of the department a year later.

But her appointment was met with outrage from Labour.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has warned her Tory opponents that their alternate Brexit plans would not make their problems disappear as she faced a continuing battle to win over sceptical MPs.

However, her return to government less than seven months after facing intense criticism over the UK's treatment of the Windrush generation is likely to prove controversial.

Asked what Mrs May would say to victims of the Windrush scandal who might feel the Hastings & Rye MP's rehabilitation had come too soon, the PM's official spokesman said: "The government has apologised, the Prime Minister and Home Secretary apologised for the Windrush scandal ... work is ongoing to make sure those people are properly compensated".

Her return to the frontbench was backed by fellow Cabinet members Sajid Javid and Liz Truss.
