Mini-Government Reshuffle Pencilled In for Next Thursday

The FT say Wednesday, Sky say otherwise , but the reshuffle speculation is reaching fever pitch before the summer break. A Downing Street source explains it well: “there are two very good rules with reshuffle speculation. 1. If you hear if from a journalist it is almost certainly b****ks. 2. If you hear from an MP it is undoubtedly b****ks, unless, in this case, that MP is called David and he lives in No.10.”  Bloggers, on the other hand…

Guido hears that, provided that the plan does not change, Claire Perry has less than a week to clear her desk – the mini-reshuffle is ‘pencilled in’ to the grid for Thursday 18 July. It may have been pencilled in, but with the hype growing it could well be brought forward.

You can read all of Guido’s speculation about the minor-movements from over the last few weeks here. There are no big changes expected, but plenty of deckchairs rearranged and deadwood shifted from the lower rungs of government. The ladies will do particularly well.
