Eurosceptic named new UK foreign minister as EU vote looms

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond arrives at No. 10 Downing Street in London, on July 15, 2014British Prime Minister David Cameron named eurosceptic Philip Hammond as his new foreign secretary on Tuesday in a major cabinet reshuffle ahead of next year’s general election. Former defence secretary Hammond, who replaces William Hague, supports Britain leaving the European Union unless significant powers are returned to London before a referendum promised for 2017. The reshuffle is the biggest since Cameron’s Conservative-led coalition government took office in 2010 and marks a bid to broaden his party’s appeal at the general election in May 2015.
