Well, I kept the essential post I've had for 4 years.
"Junior minister for constant viewing water and solvent or oil based liquid colour which slowly evaporates to allow the forming of a hard film surface with a gloss or matt protective coating."
But Gove is out.
Is this a brilliant move to draw the poison from the teaching unions stings. Or just cowardice? I would have tried to use the factionalising Gove as an asset.
"We are doing what's right, what's necessary and what the Labour Party beholden to union money will never dare to do! To put children, rather than teachers, first!"
Clearly this is an election reshuffle, designed to promote media friendly, gender politics faces, at the expense of divisive and difficult ministers.
Ok, so nothing much is going to happen in government between now and May 2015. It doesn't usually, and with liberal divorce looming, it's even more unlikely anything would be proposed that could actually be passed.
It all looks a bit Crosby. Remove toxicity...present a more inclusive narrative...get some women into the chumocracy.
Only, isn't it all a bit late? It's a necessary strategy. But it looks desperate to me.
Cameron should receive praise for sticking with his ministers and not shuffling them around all the time so nothing ever gets done. But this latest women wheeze does look to me about a year to late.
Better late than never ?
