Are we getting a minister of funny walks?

So Rishi Sunak, the PM, has appointed a TV presenter and newspaper columnist as minister for common sense, or minister without portfolio. I wonder if the fact that both descriptions are used of the same post is a sign of how little common sense we can expect to see from her in her new job?

But who is going to get Esther McVeigh's job at GB News when she and David Cameron are appointed to the House of Lords? Oh wait. Apparently, as well as being a political presenter on TV she's also a Conservative MP!  How is that even legal?
