If you want a pithy put down about a Conservative MP, the best person to ask is a Conservative MP.
Gavin Williamson is the new Defence Secretary, promoted from his previous role as the party's disciplinarian, the Chief Whip.
In Summer 2016, Williamson led Theresa May's leadership team in the House of Commons, securing her first place and over half of Conservative MPs in the first round of voting. They also maintaining a crushing lead over Andrea Leadsom in the second round.
Williamson, aged 41, has been an MP since 2010, and his rapid rise the top has been accompanied by something of a reputation.
Following the announcement he was being elevated to such a senior post, journalists began sharing the reactions from anonymous Tory MPs.
Warning: Strong language, and general cattiness follow
Minister tells me: "She's gone mad. It's real 'end of days' stuff. He's [Williamson] a real slimeball, w/ his own leadership team in place"
