Michael Dugher sacked in Labour reshuffle

The shadow secretary for culture, media and sport has been shuffled out of the shadow cabinet, according to his Twitter feed. 

By Barbara Speed

Michael Dugher, MP for Barnsley East and Shadow Secretary of tate for Culture, Media & Sport has tweeted the news that he has been sacked from the shadow cabinet in the course of Jeremy Corbyn’s latest reshuffle.

It doesn’t sound like he’s very happy about it: 

Dugher has held the position since Corbyn became leader of the Labour party in September 2015. At the end of Ed Miliband’s leadership, he was shadow secretary of state for transport.
