Jobs for former TV presenters Anna Soubry and Esther McVey

Anna Soubry MP is Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Health

Esther McVey MP is Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Work and Pensions

Two former TV presenters get jobs in the government. McVey holds the fairly marginal seat of Wirral West.

Anna Soubry will be a fireband on the front bench - she is on-record as criticising David Cameron's women problem in the past. She spoke to HuffPost UK last year about her worries for legal aid cuts.

Helen Grant gets joint MOJ/Equalities job

helen grant

PM appoints Helen Grant as joint Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at Ministry of Justice and for Women’s & Equality issues.

Helen Grant has been a fairly quiet backbencher and unflappably loyal. Along with Liz Truss, she's the second woman from the 2010 intake to get a junior ministerial job this evening.

Described by the Spectator as a 'one woman think-tank', Truss will take on responsibility for early years education, we're told.

Mehdi Hasan: Tory retoxification continues apace:

Huffpost's Political Director blogs here on the reshuffle. He writes, among other things:

Cameron capitulated to his party's right-wing, Eurosceptic, 'hang 'em and flog 'em' tendency by sacking One-Nation Conservatives such as Ken Clarke, Sayeeda Warsi and George Young and promoting ardent Thatcherites such as Chris Grayling, Owen Paterson and Theresa Villiers.

Greg Clark seemingly on-course for the Treasury

As either Financial or Commercial Secretary. Politicshome.com suggesting Clark - who is currently planning minister - will be the new City Minister.

Rumours: Greg Clark is leaving DCLG

greg clark

Unconfirmed at this stage. It would be a surprise if Clark were to not feature in the government somewhere. Highly intelligent and one of those who has managed to get planning reforms through without upsetting anyone.

Surely a job for him somewhere?
