The Conservative MP and co-host of 'Saturday Morning with Esther and Phil' gave his response to Rishi Sunak's Government reshuffle.

Tory MP Philip Davies issued a message to wife Esther Mcvey as she secured a top job in the Cabinet yesterday.

Speaking from the GB Newsroom, exclusively to GBN members, Philip Davies, who also hosts a GB News show with Esther at weekends, gave his latest verdict on Rishi Sunak's Cabinet reshuffle.

In reaction to the changes in Government, he said: "Well, it was a shock.

"I didn't see David Cameron coming back into government. I didn't see Esther being brought back into the Cabinet either. So I think my overriding emotion is one of surprise."

On the return of David Cameron, Philip said he wasn't too worried about Cameron and that the former PM had a good record on the world stage.

He added that he didn't believe Cameron would attempt to overturn the Brexit referendum.

He said: "I'm quite relaxed about it. I think it's quite a good idea to have former Prime Ministers becoming Foreign Secretary. I think that adds some luster on the world stage."

Esther McVey has now left GB News as a presenter as she joins the Cabinet as Minister for Common Sense.

And in a message to his co-presenter and wife, Philip reacted: "I didn't see it coming. She didn't see it coming.

"But look, as I just said, we've it's everybody's job in the Conservative Party to put the shoulder to the wheel and and do their best for the next election.

"And I know that Esther will do what she can to bring back some common sense into some of the decision making to tackle the woke agenda and things like that and put a stamp on this new job.

"If anybody can restore common sense to the establishment, it's Esther."
