UK's Northern Ireland Minister Quits as May Shuffles Cabinet
James Brokenshire said he was quitting because he is about to have surgery for a lesion on his lung and will need time to recover.

No word in this case who will fill the office.
The parties in Belfast have missed several government-imposed deadlines to restore power sharing, and Northern Ireland faces direct rule from London if a solution is not found soon.



Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

Can't he get his surgery postponed, just like most people in the UK this winter?

Nah, he's a Tory so he'll go private, probably at a mate's rate from one of his (many) colleagues who are closely involved in private health provision.
