The Conservative Party member serving as minister for civil society in Prime Minister David Cameron’s government tweeted revealing photos of himself in response to a message from a Twitter user claiming to be “Sophie Wittams,” described as a “twentysomething Tory PR girl” alleged to be depicted in an attached photo of a bikini-clad torso and another of a beautiful young blond’s visage.
