Former Tory employment and disability minister Esther McVey has deleted her twitter account following defeat in the general election.
Esther McVey played a pivotal role in the Tory-led coalition, through helping to deliver some of the most vicious and draconian cuts to welfare spending in living memory.
Visitors to her deleted twittter account are greeted with the message @EstherMcVeyMP “does not exist”, reports the Liverpool Echo.
There may be many poor and disabled people who wish she didn’t exist prior to inflicting pain and misery upon them.
Ms McVey was defeated in the constituency of Wirral West by Labour candidate Ms Greenwood, by a majority of just 417 votes.
However, rumours are rife that David Cameron could bring back McVey by appointing her as a peer in the House of Lords.
Ms McVey told the Liverpool Echo: “Given I’m no longer an MP I’m not sure why it’s newsworthy that I have taken down my MP twitter account.
“I can only presume it’s a slow news day at the Liverpool Echo.”
She added: “I’m proud I was part of a government that was helping turn the country around. What I want to do is go back to being a politician.
“I’m coming back – I want to be an MP.”
