An incredible 109 new Tory MPs are descending on Parliament today after the ‘blue tsunami’ of the election.
Triumphant Conservatives are reporting for duty in Westminster after demolishing Labour’s ‘Red Wall’ of Leave-backing strongholds in the North, Midlands and Wales.
Dehenna Davison – the first Tory ever to represent Bishop Auckland – tweeted a picture of herself with a backpack having been given her induction by Commons staff – joking that was like Paddington Bear.
Others shared photos of their trips to the London, clearly excited to start fulfilling their promises to secure Brexit.
The arrivals came as Boris Johnson looked to get his new government off to a flying start, with a mini-reshuffle to fill gaps in his team.
Allies have suggested he wants to ‘northernise’ the Cabinet as he seeks to cement his hold on working class areas that have put their ‘trust’ in him.
