Esther Mcvey MP is the latest in a long line of housing ministers to lose their jobs. Prime minister Boris Johnson sacked her from the role in his cabinet reshuffle on 13 February 2020. Shortly after the news broke, the ex-housing minister tweeted, ‘I’m very sorry to be relieved of my duties as Housing Minister. I wish my successor the very best & every success.’
