The estranged wife of a British MP sacked in a cabinet reshuffle has use Twitter to berate the Prime Minister for dumping her former husband.
Government whip Robert Syms declined to comment after being sacked by David Cameron in the reshuffle.
But his estranged wife was more forthcoming.
Fiona-Natasha Syms unleash a series of extraordinary messages declaring she was "beyond furious, the Daily Mail reports.
"PM just fired father of my kids over the phone. Gave up chairmanship of a cttee [committee] to be a whip, worked hard and was widely acknowledged to be a good whip. He was utterly gracious and took it like a man, I am beyond furious. Loyalty counted for nothing," she tweeted.
Mrs Syms said her estranged husband had been treated so badly he would be justified in becoming a party rebel and joining other disaffected backbenchers in the Cameron Government.
Mrs Syms, 44, wrote that "luckily for Dave", her ex-husband would "continue to be super loyal".
The Daily Mail reports that it appears Mr Syms seemingly intervened and Mrs Syms posted: "Have politely been told to zip it and stop lioness-ing. Shall put out (the) rubbish instead. Hopefully that’s not news."
