Reshuffle Days

A focus on business, jobs and delivery is my take on the reshuffle.
More junior ministers were moved than many expected but am pleased to see several members of the 2010 intake get promotion, including 6 very capable new intake female MPs. My former whip, Michael Fabricant, has stood down, so I popped in to the chamber at 5.50 to thank him and see him off the government bench for the last time. He had earlier tweeted "I am free!" before he realised he needed to do the 5-6 pm slot on the whips bench in the house. Cue much hilarity as he had to announce that "Cry Freedom, and the back benches", was going to have to wait a little while.
