David Cameron has made a surprise return government after Rishi Sunak sacked home secretary Suella Braverman, after she was accused of stoking tensions ahead of Armistice Day protests.

The former prime minister has taken over from James Cleverly as foreign secretary, while Cleverly will take Braverman's old job as part of a Cabinet reshuffle.

As Cameron stepped down as an MP in 2016 after the UK voted to leave the European Union in a referendum he called, he is being made a Lord to allow him to take up a ministerial post.

The new foreign secretary said that while he "disagreed with some individual decisions" of Sunak's, he views him as a "strong and capable prime minister" who is "showing exemplary leadership at a difficult time".

Some are happy to see such an experienced politician return to the fold, with former PM Theresa May writing: "Congratulations to @David_Cameron on his return to government. His immense experience on the international stage will be invaluable at this time of great uncertainty in our world. Looking forward to working together again!"

However, his appointment is unlikely to go down well with those who were opposed to Brexit and who blamed him for bringing it upon the country.

Anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller tweeted: "What an absolute debacle our democracy has descended into! An unelected PM leading our country, puts an unelected man #DavidCameron - who'll have to be made a Peer as our Foreign Secretary. The man with no backbone who allowed a poorly drafted Referendum Act that lead to #BrexitDisaster."
