Labours Shadow Cabinet Announced

Forrest Gump has announced his Shadow Cabinet, appointing Alan Johnson as Shadow Chancellor in a surprise move either aimed at keeping those tainted with the smell of Gordon Brown away from the finances, or Ed Miliband has branched out in to saving marriages by giving Cooper and Balls roughly equal jobs.

The big disappointment being Milibland giving a job to that self-serving overly smug twat Peter Hain.

      Well Caroline and Eric make a good couple!

      I was a big fan of Alan Johnson until his dreadful, crass mishandling of the Professor Nutt affair. I mean you have to give credit to anyone who can rise from being a postie to become a minister of the Crown. Regrettably, he revealed a complete lack of integrity in teh way hea dealt with David Nutt and the cannabis issue.

      I’ll be interested to see how Ed Balls does shadowing Theresa May. He may prove to be a progressive in this role.

      It’s a pity he couldn’t get rid of Harriet.

      What’s your problem with Peter Hain? There are many Labourites much worse than him! At least he’s not one of the bland, robotic clones.
