It didn’t take long - within 24 hours of high-flying Tory Dominic Raab being named as housing minister, so there was a parody Twitter account.
It’s been entertaining reading so far, starting with his initial “Oh God. Housing!! What a dreary brief. Still, I don’t suppose I’ll be there for long” said the fake Raab, following it up with “Loads of insincere congratulations from the muesli-munching brigades of ‘housing professionals’. Straight bat needed.”
Yesterday he swung into action with his first major decision. “There you go, demonstrating that I’m an all-action kind of chap. I’ve already sacked the namby-pamby Homes & Communities Agency and replaced it with the much more robust and British sounding Homes England. Grant Shapps has nothing on me!”
