Britain's new PM May gives big role to Johnson in Brexit cabinet

In her first public speech as UK Prime Minister, Theresa May outlined the priorities facing the new government under her leadership which include unifying a country that has been divided by the EU Referendum debate.

After her appointment, May promised that Britain will leave the European Union and will be able to "forge a bold new positive role" for itself.

"Ultimately, however, it is stability that business want to see and that is what we want the new Prime Minister and her team to provide in the first instance before setting about meeting all of the challenges ahead".

In phone conversations with the leaders of Germany, France and Ireland, who called to wish her well as Britain's second-ever woman prime minister, May underlined her commitment to a British exit, or Brexit.

European Parliament chief Martin Schulz is blasting the Cabinet picks of new British Prime Minister Theresa May as part of a "dangerously vicious cycle" that will hurt Britons in the long run.

Cameron announced his resignation after voters rejected his appeal to stay in the 28-nation bloc, and May, the former home secretary, became Conservative Party leader Monday after an abbreviated contest in which her only remaining rival dropped out.

"I have just been to Buckingham Palace where Her Majesty the Queen has asked me to form a new Government and I accepted".

"Following the referendum, we face a time of great national change", May said, according to the AP.

May ditched finance minister George Osborne, Cameron's closest ally, and appointed former foreign secretary Philip Hammond to the job instead, charging him with the task of calming fears over the potential damage of leaving Britain's biggest market.

She arrived at her new Downing Street residence with a promise to tackle "burning injustice".

Johnson was the figurehead of the successful Leave campaign, but since the referendum had suffered widespread criticism and ridicule for failing to present a clear Brexit plan and swiftly dropping out of the leadership race.

Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster, president of the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, made his comments in a letter of congratulations to May, who took over as leader of the ruling Conservative Party July 13 after David Cameron formally resigned. In David Cameron (the outgoing prime minister) I follow in the footsteps of a great modern Prime Minister.

Britain got a new prime minister on Wednesday.

Hammond then went on to say that during Brexit negotiations with the European Union he will push for British access to the European market for London's financial services.
