- Superb reshuffle analysis from Tim Hames in The Times (neither a columnist nor a paper that I normally find myself in agreement with):
"This reckless reshuffle has thus imperilled the Prime Minister to an extent that five Conservative leaders and a few overseas dictators never managed. It steers me, at least, to ponder a personally painful question: 'Has Mr Blair become a menace to Blairism?'"Read the whole thing. Top notch.
