Once moderate, today's Johnson-era Tories 'not same conservative party Cameron left behind in 2016'


Former prime minister David Cameron attended his first Cabinet meeting in seven years on Tuesday, after his surprise appointment as UK foreign secretary. Cameron was the shock call-up in Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's reshuffle on Monday, which notably saw outspoken right-winger Suella Braverman sacked as interior minister. His unexpected return has been interpreted as political positioning, to win over more centrist voters before a general election expected next year. Sunak, 43, assembled his new senior ministers for their first meeting at Downing Street on Tuesday morning, describing them as a "strong and united team". For in-depth analysis and a deeper perspective on Cameron's stunning return to the UK government following a disastrous Brexit referendum gamble that led to his precipitous fall from power, FRANCE 24's Mark Owen is joined by Dr. Phil Catney, Senior Lecturer in Politics and School Research Director at Keele University.
