Harriet, I'm a laydee, Harperson has been elected to the position of deupty leader of the Labour Party. This means that there will be at least one member of the cabinet who has already demonstrated sufficient incompetence at the task of government that even New Labour felt that she had to be fired. So the question remains- how many more people previously judged to be incompetent, even by the government, will win a place in Gordon Brown's first cabinet? I'm guessing there will be at least three, long time Gordon crony Nick Brown, whose handling of the Fott & Mouth crisis cost this country billions and wrecked the livelihoods of tens of thousands of farmers. and also Beverley Hughes the Home Office minister who was forced out over a 2004 immigration scandal and is being tipped for an inexplicable comeback.
