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.
