British Prime Minister David Cameron was forced into a hasty cabinet reshuffle Saturday after the dramatic resignation of a senior minister that threatens to widen divisions over Europe within the ruling Conservative party.The rancorous departure of Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith, a leading campaigner for Britain to quit the European Union, also deals a blow to the political ambitions of finance minister George Osborne, commentators said.Responding, Cameron said he was "puzzled and disappointed" by Duncan Smith's decision to leave the Cabinet post he has held since 2010 .Duncan Smith's move also handed the struggling opposition Labor party a much-needed propaganda boost by exposing government divisions, and its leader Jeremy Corbyn was quick to demand Osborne's resignation.
