The wife of Robert Syms, who was a Conservative whip, has taken to Twitter to air her anger after he lost his position in the reshuffle.
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.
Liberal Democrat Michael Moore has been replaced as Scottish Secretary by the party's chief whip Alistair Carmichael.
This is not going to be a Conservative Cabinet reshuffle, but among the junior ranks there will be some tinkering.
Chloe Smith was just 27 when elected MP in Norwich and became David Cameron's youngest minister when she was promoted two years later.
