Speaking to Tom Bradby on the Agenda the Prime Minister has said that the reshuffle in the Cabinet is an opportunity to "bring on fresh talent."
– David Cameron
What you do is refresh the team and I've got a talented bunch of MPs and it's right some of them should be serving in the government.
It's an opportunity to bring forward some fresh talent. There was a mixture of people from all sorts of backgrounds and walks of life. The main thing is are they qualified to do the job and I think they will prove that.

The self-proclaimed "David Cameron cheerleader" launched a scathing attack on the Prime Minister after her husband's demotion:
PM just fired father of my kids over the phone. Gave up chairmanship of a cttee to be a whip, worked hard and was widely acknowledged...
to be a good whip. He was utterly gracious and took it like a man, I am beyond furious. Loyalty counted for nothing.
Luckily for Dave he'll continue to be super loyal. I'd be fixing up drinks with Afriye, Crouch, Wollaston, Norman. No not really.
