Former home secretary Amber Rudd has been re-appointed tothe Work and Pensions office after Esther McVey quit yesterday over the PrimeMinister’s withdrawal agreement for Brexit.
Ms Rudd, who quit Theresa May’s Cabinet in April amid controversy over her handling of the Windrush controversy said she is “delighted to be given the honour and responsibility.”
But the MP for Hastings and Rye who was first elected into the House of Commons in 2010 has faced severe criticism from the opposition bench over her return to the cabinet.

The Member of Parliament for Tottenham David Lammy said: “Rudd made inexcusable errors over Windrush. It is wrong that she has been given a new job before any victims have had compensation. She will be the sixth DWP secretary since March 2016. This is a poisoned chalice in a government that is unlikely to survive until Christmas.”
In the past 24 hours more than two ministers including the Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab quit the cabinet over the Prime Minister’s management of Britain’s exit from the EU.

Stephen Barclay, the MP for North East Cambridgeshire, has now been confirmed as the new Brexit Secretary.
The quick reshuffling of the cabinet might be enough to keep Mrs May in office.
Although there are still murmurs of a plot from Ministers planning a vote of no confidence against the Conservative leader, Ms Rudd says she is confident Ms May will survive.
