British Prime Minister David Cameron named arch-euroskeptic Philip Hammond as his new foreign secretary Tuesday as he unveiled a major Cabinet reshuffle before next year's general election.Former Defense Secretary Hammond, whose appointment was confirmed on Cameron's Twitter feed, supports Britain leaving the European Union in a referendum in 2017 unless significant powers are returned to London. Tuesday's reshuffle is the biggest since Cameron's Conservative-led coalition government took power in 2010 and marks a bid to broaden his party's appeal ahead of the election. He has promised a referendum on Britain leaving the EU in three years' time if he remains prime minister beyond 2015 . As well as Hague's departure, around a dozen middle-aged, white male ministers are leaving Cameron's government.
