Reshuffling to victory

It’s still sinking in, but first reactions?

  • Yay! 6 years since Straw left the post, we get to call someone Jack Boot again. Okay, Jacqui Boot.
  • Will Ruth Kelly abolish public transport on Sundays?
  • Des Browne to be defence AND Scotland? Are we going to be fortifying Hadrian’s Wall?
  • Geoff Hoon as Chief Whip. Not sure putting him in charge of the troops is a good idea. Look at Iraq.

How many newspapers and blogs will use the following headline: “A woman’s place is in the Home Office“? Is it even worth counting?
