John Whittingdale's second special advisor at the DCMS is Miroslava 'Mimi' Macejkova, who comes fresh from the free-thinking office of Philip Davies, MP for Shipley and serial BBC-botherer.

Mimi boasts an MSc, but I can't find where she got it. She joined Gardant Communications as an intern/researcher in 2010, and was a campaign assistant for the Conservative party in that year's election. Then it was back to political PR, before landing an intern role with Steve Baker, Tory MP for Wycombe. A proper job in the office of Dominic Grieve, MP for Beaconsfield, then Attorney General followed. In 2012, she became "Senior Parliamentary Researcher and Office Manager" for Philip Davies, already providing straight media thinking on John Whittingdale's DCMS Select Committee.

Mimi shares her birthday with the late Margaret Thatcher, and is a member of the Facebook fan page "I'm In Love With Margaret Thatcher". The Freedom Association presented her with a birthday present (left) in 2013.

When she's not at Freedom Association pub quizzes, she likes the music of Lenny Kravitz and The Rolling Stones. She declared tickets to a Kings of Leon concert in 2013, provided by Japan Tobacco International. In the same year, KW Communications took her to Gibraltar to further research on the Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill.

The spin, to the Publishers' Association, is that she "will most likely be deployed in keeping Conservative backbenchers content around BBC Charter Renewal issues."
