Guess Who The New Deputy Prime Minister Is?

Good to see Vince there but I doubt if the Lib Dems are daft enough to take the ultimate poison chalice.

I only hope George is smart enough to realise he's a lot less smart than Vince is. Going on past performance, not.

Is that the reason William Haig has been walking around with a face like a ripped dap

Rather like the title for Geoffrey Howe, Hestletine and Prescott, it's more a 'important figure in the government with an oversight of domestic issues' post. If Cameron falls under a passing bus tomorrow, Hague would be in pole position to take over as PM, since he is (to all intents and purposes) deputy leader of the largest party in the coalition/whatever arrangement the Lib Dems come to.

While I can see the merits of Ashdown's name being mentioned in the context of defence -

a) the Lib Dems need to confirm they're on board
b) his experience suggests that he'd be better off in some foreign affairs post
c) the Tory party is likely to want Fox or another senior Tory in that post, and DC would face some bother in parachuting Ashdown in as Sec of State (even if Ashdown is properly qualified to parachute onto main building).

(Edit - don't f'ing have finger trouble & press 'submit' before you've finished typing, Archi...)

Granted, he'd possibly be good with his military experience, but not sure that this'd go down well with the Tories, and, more to the point has it actually been confirmed? Whet memorial question - is there a link for that?

Nothing yet - reckon however this source is providing RUMOUR!!

Saying that, may be the Tories are learning the Labour tricks quick. Brief everything unofficially first, see the reaction and change accordingly........

OK so Osbourne isnt as sharp as Vince Cable, but having Cable as an advisor is pretty good for us all. Cable is about the most acute economist of all parties.

Daily Mail reporting that;

Nick Clegg will be Leader of House with charge of pushing through voting reforms, as well as Dep PM.

Paddy to be a National Security Advisor

Vince to be Chief Secretary to the Treasury

Just been confirmed on sky that Nick Clegg is indeed Deputy PM!

What a pity he will now have to move out his grace and favour abode.

My sympathy knows no bounds :twisted:
