Bolton’s three MPs have shared mixed reactions to the dramatic reshuffle of the UK cabinet.

In a turbulent day of politics, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak sacked Home Secretary Suella Braverman and in her place came former Foreign Secretary James Cleverly.

He in turn was surprisingly replaced by former Prime Minister David Cameron, who will have to take a place in the House of Lords in order to serve.

He left politics following the Brexit referendum in 2016.

The departure of Mrs Braverman came after a number of controversial comments including branding marches for Palestine “hate marches” and suggesting being homeless was a “lifestyle choice".

Her departure was welcomed by one of Bolton’s two Tory MPs.

Mark Logan, who represents the town's north east constituency, said in a tweet: "The Home Office, like any home, needs an adult at the helm.

"We’ve finally got that - inspired appointment."

He also gave it a thumbs up picture alongside a picture of the new Home Secretary.

Meanwhile, Chris Green, the Conservative MP for the town’s west constituency, welcomed the appointment of both new ministers.

He said: “James Cleverly is well regarded amongst his colleagues.

“I believe he will be an effective home secretary.

“The big thing we anticipate is the decision of the Supreme Court as to whether the Rwanda plan can go ahead.

“I think it will be a defining point for the Conservative Party in terms of hearing that concerns that people have right across the country.

“It is a surprise that David Cameron has been invited back to government.

“He will be able to speak to presidents and prime ministers on an equal footing.

“I believe David Cameron will be a huge asset to this government and to Britain.”

But for Yasmin Qureshi, the Labour MP for the town’s south constituency, said the changes would make no difference.

She said: “Reshuffling the ministers won’t change the Tory record over the past 13 years.

“It won’t make any difference to the cost of living or to public services.

“The only way to bring about change is to get rid of this failed Tory government.”
