Overseas Network, July 25 - The Sun and Metro reported that Boris Johnson, the new British Prime Minister, formed a tough new cabinet on the first day of office on the 24th. Foreign media said that it would be the most right-wing government since the 1980s. Johnson took the opportunity to become the new prime minister, rewarded his supporters and eliminated key figures in the May administration.
In the brutal shuffle of the new prime minister, more than half of the former Prime Minister Theresa Mays cabinet (17 out of 30) was either fired or resigned.
Hunter and Johnson
Johnson relentlessly abandoned his enemies, including his opponent Jeremy Hunt. Hunter himself resigned after refusing to be demoted to the post of Defense Secretary. Hunter said on Twitter the same day that he decided to be a backbench member and would meet the biggest challenge - to be a good father.
Johnson appointed former Home Secretary Said Javid as Chancellor of the Exchequer, former de-Europeans Minister Dominique Lab as Foreign Minister, and former International Development Secretary Pritty Patel as Home Secretary.
According to British media, Matt Hancock, the Minister of Health, and Amber Rader, the Minister of Labor, have put aside self-esteem and principles to keep their jobs by providing support for Johnson.

The speed and magnitude of the shuffling of Johnsons new cabinet were shocking. There were so many dismissed ministers that the British government had to pay them more than 250,000 pounds ($2.14 million) in severance payments, and each person would receive about 17,000 pounds ($145,000).
