Interesting story in the Sun today about Esther McVey who was inexplicably the focus of all the press coverage of the reshuffle last week.
Mass briefings about bringing in more women meant Esther's picture was everywhere - but she didn't get a new job, all that happened was that she was allowed to sit in on cabinet meetings.
SubScribe wondered whether Esther had gone in for a bit of self publicity but Tom Newton Dunn puts a much more worrying slant on the Downing Street parade.
The cabinet biscuit duty was an afterthought because McVey had gone to No 10 in her finery in the belief she was to be promoted - and when she was told she was staying out she took Cameron at his word and refused to budge until he came up with something.
So Cameron - or more probably Lynton Crosby - blatantly used a government minister as eye candy and a publicity prop.
Or as a smokescreen for the real story - Gove and the Palinist Nicky Morgan.
This is the Tories spinning out of control.
