    My those new deck chairs look very nice, but why are they sliding over the deck so much?

    Popeye says:

    Yes, very reminiscent of the Titanic.

    Jimmy says:

    Well there’s a winning team if ever I saw one. We may as well just give up now. Still, congratulations to Mr. *unt on being the first man to get a promotion for lying to parliament.

    No Lords reform, no AV says:

    But how is Nick going to pass the time when he goes into work now that he has got nothing to do?

  13. 13
    Um ... says:

    Grand titles

    Grotty People – by and large

    Grotty policies

  14. 14
    Rock on Jezza says:

    I could never understand what Lansley was trying to do. He even had a daily slot on PM for a couple of weeks and I was none the wiser after, just more confused. I think he meant well but no one really knew what he was doing.

  15. 15
    Not surprised says:

    Why do we need one Minister without Portfolio never mind two?

  16. 16
    Dianne Abbot says:

    I don’t see any West Indian mothers in that line up.

    Money tree says:

    So how is that brains trust going to get the Tories elected in 2015?
    Bit of a gift to UKIP

    Silly Walks apparently, with Warsi

    Do the shuffle says:

    Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change – The Rt Hon Edward Davey MP

    Is he related to Wavey Davey?

    I’m seeing conflicting reports about who the Attorney General is and who the M. for women, equaility and Marxism is.

    Want the deficit reduced says:

    Guido- are any of them Conservatives?

  23. 23
    John Page says:

    I thought Maria Miller was now Minister for Women and Equalities as well? Or was that misreported?

  24. 24

    Perhaps Cameron wanted to surround himself with fresh faces who are grateful for the job/money and who wont point out the obvious that policies are failing and out of step with pulse of our nation.

    If any of you are here, take note, even some Lords are now agreeing that our government, ie you, are damaging the social fabric of this nation. The public have booooooooooddddd Osborne. Are you going to toe the line and keep your fingers crossed while Britain fails under current leadership or are you going to knock some sense into Cameron and his buddies and try to repair the damage? Remember the IMF says you have it wrong, even your old once faithful economists say that you have it wrong, the public have booooooooodddddddd, are you going to reinspire this nation or continue its descent into darkness?

    Do you represent the people or your own egos and wallets? Daft question.

  25. 25

    The standards at the top set what is acceptable to those below, right down to town councils.

    Does our government have any understanding of esoterics?

  26. 26
    Perry says:

    Benefits cheats are said to steal from the tax payer and jailed, expenses fraudulently claimed from the taxpayer by MPs said to be a mistake and lead to promotion to Government position. Am I missing something?

  27. 27
    Baldy says:

    You’ll have to ask the EU. Policy is nothing to do with the UK government, whose time is fully taken up ruining running the country.

  28. 28
    Pundit Too says:

    No he is probably related to the inventor of the Davey lamp – which is apt considering the darkness descending.

  29. 29
    Pundit Too says:

    I quall at the thought.

  30. 30
    Prescott, Mandelson, Hattie Harperson, et al says:

    Not at all, you are right on the button.

  31. 31
    Mr Rotivator says:

    The problem is that Lansley did know what he was doing. He spent a long time in opposition with a health role. The NHS did not know what he was doing at a grass roots level and thought things were all about targets that were measurable (rather than delivering better health; as they had been conditioned to think). So implementation of his ideas did not work and some are going to be scrapped.

  32. 32
    Andrew says:

    Nice to see a bit of history in the making.

    Chris Grayling is the first non-lawyer to be Lord Chancellor since 1558.

    In those days it if it was not a lawyer it was a churchman. Mr G is a television producer and perhaps his trade fills in for the Law and the Church these days.

  33. 33
    Andrew says:

    No, it’s correct. I expect she’ll chop wood at Chequers and polish up the Cameron family silver too.

  34. 34
    Andrew says:

    AG no change. Maria Miller for women, equalities, and navel fluff.

  35. 35
    Sad soul says:

    No, Oliver Heald is a good MP

  36. 36
    Mdm La Farge says:

    Should have been the other way around

  37. 37
    Soapsuds and bubbles says:

    Stop whinging Di, at least you managed to dislodge your opposite number in that lot across the floor.

    All you need now is a new diet and you’ll be right up against that famous wall of yours.

  38. 38
    Soapsuds and bubbles says:

    and since he hasn’t a hope in hell of changing the climate,his salary should be halved.

  39. 39
    Soapsuds and bubbles says:

    Has E2R commented yet on “Her” new guvmint?

  40. 40
    Buster says:

    Did anyone expect anything sensible from Clegaron?

  41. 41
    Nan Taylor says:

    Right? Honourable? The c*nts are rarely right – none of the thieving c*nts are honourable. Pompous fekkin arsewipes.

    Anyway, they are totally pointless. The EU runs the show now.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
