British Prime Minister Theresa May has made more changes to the government, removing another key supporter of predecessor David Cameron from ministerial ranks.

Downing Street says arts minister Ed Vaizey, a friend of Cameron, has left the government. Ros Altmann, Cameron’s minister for pensions, has also been dismissed.

The government shuffle is in its fourth day on Saturday as May fills out junior ministerial ranks.

May has made dramatic changes, placing leading proponents of a British exit from the European Union in charge of foreign affairs, international trade and EU negotiations.

All the same, May has signaled she’s in no rush to start exit talks. She said on Friday she would not launch formal negotiations until there is a “UK approach” involving Scotland, which strongly backed remaining in the bloc.
