Devizes MP at centre of Conservative unrest

It's emerged that the MP for Devizes has privately called some people, who have been critical of the government's Brexit divorce bill, "swivel-eyed".

Claire Perry sent the message to colleagues on Whatsapp and it was reported in the Sunday papers.

Speaking on social media, Ms Perry said there are "no excuses for what she said", but that she was "defending hard-working colleagues who were being called "traitors"".

Claire Perry to attend cabinet as business minister

Prime Minister Theresa May has had a cabinet reshuffle.

Claire Perry is the new minister of state for business, energy and industry and, in that capacity, gets the right to attend cabinet.

The Devizes MP was seen as a protege of George Osborne. She quit her job as rail minister after David Cameron's resignation in July 2016.

But the pro-Remain MP rejoined the government last summer and is regarded as having done a good job since then as energy minister.
