Nicky Morgan (born 1 October 1972) is a British Conservative Party politician and former lawyer who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Loughborough since 2010, and was appointed Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on 24 July 2019.

Nicky Morgan served as Economic Secretary to the Treasury from October 2013 to April 2014 and as Financial Secretary to the Treasury from April to July 2014. She was the Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities from July 2014 to July 2016.[1] She was removed from these positions on 14 July 2016 by David Cameron's successor, Theresa May.[2]

Newsnight confrontation

On 1 October 2019 'Artist Taxi Driver' tweeted:

Astonishing exchange from BBC Newsnight where Emily Maitlis confronts Nicky Morgan asking “What has happened to you? What has happened to you?”[3]

Select Committee Chair

In July 2017, Morgan was elected Chair of the Treasury Select Committee following the UK/2017 General Election.[4]


In December 2016, Morgan daringly suggested that Theresa May’s flashy £995 leather flares were not at all the kind of thing she’d be able to justify down the market in Loughborough.[5]


Nicky stood down at the UK/General election/2019. She now sits in the House of Lords.

Document:Racist and Cruel - The Nasty World of the Equality and Human Rights CommissionArticle30 May 2016David HenckeI think the EHRC is becoming part of the new nasty Britain. It will issue fine words but do nothing practical about the plight of people because it won't have the staff to do it. It is all part of turning the country into a place where the wealthy feel comfortable and the rest have to scavenge to survive. The only added twist is that the well paid people at the top of this pyramid at the ECHR are being paid out of ordinary people's taxes.
