Junior Ministers Appointed

Congratulations to local MPs Bridget Prentice and Joan Ruddock on their appointment to Gordon Brown’s government.

Bridget remains in the Ministry of Justice where she’s been Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for a while now, and Joan returns to government as one of the Parliamentary Under Secretary of States in Defra – all those questions about bees paid off!

What with Harriet and Tessa in more senior positions we can’t complain that this corner of South East London is under represented in the government.

    “we can’t complain that this corner of South East London is under represented in the government” – oh yes we can! There are now more privately educated folks in Cabinet (9 out of 22) than there were under Blair – that, to me, says that the working class of south-east London is now more under-represented than they were last week!

    Hum… slightly different point to the one I was making. But, like you I would hope to see working people represented in government, and by the Labour Party.

    Slightly tangentially I see that Matthew Taylor is thinking about how to get more middle class parents to keep their kids in state schools.

    “slightly different point to the one I was making” – err, yes, that’s because I was pissed when I wrote my comment and that’s why I sounded like a stark-raving mad ultra-leftist.

    The dangers of alcohol… which why there’s a strategy whether that’ll help with the ultra-leftist thing I can’t say.
