"Like pulling a dead rabbit out of a hat": Former British PM appointed as Foreign Secretary

A UK political commentator says appointing David Cameron to the Foreign Secretary role is like pulling a dead rabbit out of a hat.  

The former British PM has been appointed as part of a major cabinet reshuffle, sparked by the removal of Home Secretary Suella Braverman. 

It was after she wrote an op-ed accusing the police of double standards in handling protests.  

UK Political Commentator Rod Liddle says Cameron's Brexit stance will alienate some Conservative Party voters.  

He told Mike Hosking that firing Braverman could come back to haunt Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.   

Liddle says that while she was fiery, she echoed the views of many voters.
