Liam Byrne has survived the chop in one of Ed’s more sensible decisions. He’s lost his policy role though, with that going to former Blair Political Secretary and David Miliband running mate Jon Cruddas:
- Jon Cruddas is to become Coordinator of the Labour Party Policy Review.
- Ed Miliband will recommend to the National Policy Forum that Angela Eagle becomes its new chair.
- Owen Smith is to replace Peter Hain as Shadow Secretary of State for Wales.
- Andrew Adonis will advise the Policy Review on areas of Labour’s industrial strategy.
Guido is still trying to work out who Owen Smith is…
