The former prime minister of Britain, David Cameron, set off a storm of speculation on Monday as he appeared in Downing Street amid an explosive cabinet reshuffle.
Current Prime Minister Rishi Sunak sacked his Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, on Monday morning, local time.
James Cleverly, the current Foreign Secretary, was seen entering Downing Street shortly afterwards, with top political observers assuming he would be named as Ms Braverman’s replacement in the Home Office – the equivalent of Australia’s Home Affairs ministry.
So far, so predictable. But then a car pulled into Downing Street, and to most people’s surprise, Mr Cameron emerged, walking in front of the cameras before entering the Prime Minister’s residence.
Mr Cameron was Britain’s prime minister from 2010-2016. While he is no longer an MP, the speculation is that he could be appointed to the House of Lords, then appointed as Britain’s new foreign secretary.
More to come.
