British P.M. Reshuffles Cabinet

In a bid to reinvigorate his wilting government, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced a round of changes to his cabinet on Tuesday. Education Secretary Michael Gove retained his position as did Duncan Smith, Work and Pensions secretary. Cameron appointed a new leader of the House of Commons, Andrew Lansely, and made Chris Grayling the new Justice secretary. The next parliamentary elections will be held in 2015, and Cameron seems to want to improve the profile of his governing coalition before then. The coalition between Cameron’s Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats has seen a dip in popular opinion as the British economy continues to struggle.
