Cabinet reshuffle 2021: Gavin Williamson and Robert Jenrick AXED in Boris’s reshuffle with Dominic Raab also at risk


BORIS Johnson has wielded the axe in a brutal Cabinet reshuffle that today saw Gavin Williamson among senior ministers to be chopped.

The Education Secretary was widely tipped to be ousted following a torrid pandemic beset by endless fiascoes with schools, exams and PR disasters.

Justice Secretary Robert Buckland and Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has also been sacked from the Government.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab is also among the top Tories expected to be demoted.

The PM is overhauling his top team this afternoon in a long-awaited shake-up that will see senior ministers turfed out of their jobs.

Ambitious MPs desperate to climb the ladder were standing by their phones this morning as the Westminster rumour mill went into overdrive.

For weeks the PM has dangled the prospect of a reshuffle to whip rebellious MPs into line for a series of crunch votes.

Now – as he looks to reset his premiership with the annual Conservative Party conference in a few weeks – the reshuffle is finally on.
