Amanda Anne Milling is a British politician serving as Minister of State for Asia and the Middle East since 2021 and Member of Parliament (MP) for Cannock Chase since the 2015 General Election. She was Minister without Portfolio in the UK cabinet and, alongside Ben Elliot, as Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party from February 2020 to September 2021. She previously worked in market research.
In September 2021, Amanda Milling was sacked by Boris Johnson as the co-Chairman of the Conservative Party. In a tweet following her sacking, Milling described holding the position as “a privilege and an honour”:
“Thank you to the voluntary party and the team at CCHQ for their support. Thank you to @BorisJohnson for this opportunity. I will continue working to deliver on our plans to level up the UK.”
British Virgin Islands
In April-May 2022, Amanda Milling was sent to the British Virgin Islands following the arrest of former premier, Andrew Fahie, on drugs running charges in the United States. The idea of direct rule from the UK was being considered but without the support of the acting premier Natalio Wheatley.
