Most MPs who enter the House of Commons in the train of the majority party, hope for promotion. And having been elected MP for Yeovil in 3 successive General Elections, Marcus Fysh has served for 7 years as an MP. Yet still he was overlooked for a ministerial post. Not even a junior one.
Even in the latter stages of the disintegration of Johnson’s government, Marcus Fysh was not considered for a ministry. Despite the fact that there were more vacancies than MPs left supporting Johnson, still Mr Fysh did not get the call. However when the Conservative leadership contest looked to find a replacement, Fysh made a smart move. Following his Parliamentary mentor, Jacob Rees-Mogg, he backed Liz Truss for Prime Minister.
That move has finally paid dividends. Marcus Fysh has finally been considered for promotion. Today it was announced that he would be Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Trade. And Marcus Fysh has some relevant experience having done business with several overseas countries.
