Well, technically muzzled general election candidates since the status of MP does not apply during purdah. Specifically Diane Abbott and Jacob Reed Mogg. Both strangely quiet and largely invisible to the media, despite the positions they held prior to the election campaign. I suspect that they have been told to keep their mouths shut and keep out of sight in order to avoid compromising the chances of success for their respective parties. However, if they are seen as a liability now, why can't they be seen as a liability once put in a position of government responsibility? Neither, in my view, should be anything but back benchers.
