David Cameron becomes UK foreign secretary

David Cameron has returned to government as UK foreign secretary, in a stunning comeback for the former prime minister. Downing Street announced on Monday that Cameron would join Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's government, accepting a peerage in order to do so, as part of a wider reshuffle in which Suella Braverman was sacked as home secretary and replaced by the foreign secretary, James Cleverly. Cameron stood down in 2016 after losing the Brexit referendum, but reportedly told friends in 2018 he wanted to return to frontline politics, preferably as foreign secretary. Sunak’s decision to bring back Cameron is likely to please moderates in the Conservative party who have been dismayed by Braverman’s aggressively rightwing rhetoric on issues such as immigration, policing and homelessness.
