Following the Prime Minister’s reshuffle, on Monday, Esther McVey has returned to the Cabinet tables as the “minister for common sense.”
At the moment McVey’s exact role has not been set out, but the new Tory chairman Richard Holden told Times Radio, the MP for Tatton, in Cheshire will “represent a part of that broad panoply of opinion that the Conservative Party represent.”
McVey has been described as “plain speaking northerner” and she will tackle “woke” issues within Whitehall.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman was asked of her role of the minister for “common sense,” he said that this is “not her public title.”
He added, that McVey “is the minister without portfolio in the Cabinet Office.”
