James Brokenshire to continue as MP for Old Bexley & Sidcup after surgery

Forming executive a 'top priority', says new NI Secretary Karen Bradley

Forming executive a 'top priority', says new NI Secretary Karen Bradley

Like James Brokenshire, who resigned on Monday for health reasons, Ms Bradley worked closely with Ms May as minister for preventing abuse, exploitation and crime from 2014 until 2016, when she became culture secretary.

The switch, part of a long-awaited Cabinet reshuffle by May, comes almost a year to the day since the collapse of the once-troubled province's semi-autonomous government.

She will now have to find a replacement at a time when she is already carrying out a major re-shaping of her top team.

Explaining his decision, a source close to Mr Brokenshire said: "He has a small lesion on his right lung and is getting major surgery in the next couple of weeks".

Khloe Kardashian's pregnancy and delivery details
It appears in the clip as if the family, including Kourtney , Kim , and Khloe Kardashian , are involved in the reveal. Khloe doesn't know the gender of their baby just yet, but many are touting that they're having a baby boy.

"Clearly, my long term health and my family are my priorities and I intend to proceed with surgery at the earliest possible opportunity".

Brokenshire, 50, took to Twitter later in the day to express his appreciation for messages of support.

In November, Brokenshire was forced to begin setting a budget for the province, but he said a return to direct rule could still be avoided.

In her choice of Karen Bradley as Northern Ireland secretary, Theresa May has replaced one of her former junior ministers at the home office with another.

Joey Barton is convinced Liverpool won't be able to sign Alexis Sanchez
However, Barton believes that the Chilean is far more likely to end up at Manchester City than Anfield. Manchester City are said to be confident of landing the Arsenal man for as little as £25 million.

It is a year since late deputy first minister Martin McGuinness resigned from the governing coalition at Stormont in protest at the DUP's handling of a botched green energy scheme.

The power-sharing government was set up as a result of the 1998 Good Friday agreement, which brought to an end three decades of mostly sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland that claimed the lives of 3,500 people.

A fall-out between the two leading political parties, the DUP and Sinn Fein, has meant that has been no Northern Ireland Executive in operation for nearly a year.

Oprah isn't the only celebrity who might have a future in politics
However Trump himself told Winfrey in 1988 that he too would likely not run for president and yet he now sits in the White House. She recently sold part of her stake in OWN but renewed her contract to remain CEO through 2025. "She's taking it seriously".
