AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

Surely, to be a reshuffle one must randomise the pack somewhat? I'd always understood that to be the meaning of the word.

Anyway, leaving over half of your cabinet in the exact same positions as they were the day before can hardly be called a change, can it.

• Alistair Darling – stays as Chancellor
• David Miliband – stays as Foreign Secretary
• Jack Straw – stays as Justice Minister
• Lord Mandelson – stays at Business
• Ed Balls – stays at Schools
• Ed Miliband – keeps with Climate
• Shaun Woodward – remains at Northern Ireland
• Jim Murphy – stays with Scotland
