Grant Shapps is a British politician who has been serving as Secretary of State for Transport since 2019, and has recently become one of 10 Conservative MPs who have launched a bid to be the next leader of the party, and therefore prime minister
Following Cameron’s appointment as PM in 2010, Shapps was appointed Minister of State for Housing and Local government.
In the 2012 Cabinet reshuffle he was promoted to the Cabinet as Chairman of the Conservative Party.
In 2015 Shapps was forced to resign from this role, following the tragic death of a Tory pressure group blogger, Elliot Johnson.
Johnson claimed he was being bullied by a politician, and that Shapps had done nothing to stop this harassment.
More recently, Shapps has been a part of Boris Johnson’s cabinet as Transport secretary, a role which has seen him effectively nationalise the Northern Train franchise.
