The anchor didn’t really know what to make of him – what is this regular person doing inside the commentariat?

Finally, though, he decided that remaining anonymous was contributing to a fake news environment and he should out himself. He went to the University of Manchester to study comparative religion, moving to London in his late 20s, “because Ellie was there”. I went to London completely braced, thinking, ‘Everyone is really switched on and really fast and sharp,’ and I got there and thought, ‘Everyone’s just the same as the people I know back home, maybe not as funny, but they’re doing much more interesting stuff.I kept thinking: ‘You’re sitting in the House of Lords and I can run rings around you in an argument if I have to.

My dad is very clever, he has a lot of varied interests, both my parents have, which they seem to have passed on to me. Into that happy but high-stakes scene, Morris dropped a hand grenade last Wednesday: a video revealing that the Secret Tory, a Twitter account lampooning Conservatives from a thousand directions, has been him all along.The 2019 Conservative MPs are self-interested, they’re corrupt, they’re mean-spirited, largely stupid and, as far as I can tell, filling their helicopters and firing up the shredders before they get booted out at the next election.

Henry Morris couldn’t be further from the Westminster bubble, but for years he has lampooned MPs online.

It was through Abbey Shakespeare Players that he met his wife in his early 20s, but “I was a bit wild at the time, getting into all sorts of scrapes, so she wasn’t having anything to do with me then. From Brexit to Covid, parties to pig culling, the Conservative government has lurched from crisis to crisis. The Diary of a Secret Tory MP is an outrageous spoof of the classic political journal that pulls back the Lulu Lytle curtains to expose extraordinary goings-on at Westminster across a tumultuous twelve months. Maybe I’m being unfair, but she looks at him as if he is sort of unpredictable and unsanitary, like a bird in an airport. The bestselling Diary of a Secret Tory MP lifts the lid on one of the biggest periods of upheaval in recent memory (certainly since Nick Clegg broke George Osbourne's printer at the treasury) - the last twelve months of British politics.
