Types of Members of Parliament – The Aspiring Minister
MPs typically come to the Commons hoping to rise up the Ministerial ladder.
Speaking well in the Commons, displaying a knowledge of topics and defending the Government will catch the eye of the Whips who will recommend the MP to the Prime Minister for office.
In a few cases criticism of the Government in a policy area may lead the Prime Minister to bring the MP into office to keep them quiet, but regularly rebelling in divisions will not.
