Labour’s reshuffle

October 6, 2008

Obviously, the return of Peter Mandelson stands out.  It is very easy to be critical of this man, especially considering his role in the rollout of spin in politics.  However, I also recall Michael Portillo once commenting that when Mr Mandelson responded to MP correspondence in his ministerial capacity, it was always clear that he had clearly had an input into the letter’s content, rather than just signing off what Civil Servants had written.

Clearly been a success for New Labour in the past.  Am I worried?  No!
