Hoon for chop in reshuffle? Please?

From today's Sunday Torygraph. Please let it be true....except for the replacement they're touting.

"Geoff Hoon, the Defence Secretary, is one of those being considered for Work and Pensions. If that happens, Patricia Hewitt could become Britain's first female Defence Secretary, having long been tipped for a move from Trade and Industry."
Hewitt - bit like putting Herod in charge of child care. The only one who would look after Defence is the current Health Secretary - which is why he wont get the job.
Hewitt voted for a reduction in the age of consent for homosexuals.

So, it's fine to bugger your mates once you're 16 is it?

Im leaving before they make it compulsory.

Awful woman. Born in Australia, so a damn foreigner to boot.!
A damned Colonial......and probably descended from a crim! And here was I thinking that Aussies were, in our glorious military tradition, supposed to be cannon-fodder rather than leaders.

Didn't realise she'd been a nurse........ 8)

Yep. Worked in 2 Para med centre apparently.
Reckon you've hit the nail on the head, ET. She looks like a 2 Para med centre pin-up.

She has also worked for Age Concern and Liberty - really useful experience for a potential Defence Secretary.
Oh Well that's all settled then, the Defence of the Realm will be perfectly safe in her hands.....ahem

Nurse I think its time for my lithium! :roll:
Her Age Concern experience will come in handy for MCP implementation. After all, the MoD's obviously deeply concerned about getting rid of most people of a certain age. And, purely coincidentally, pension entitlement. :twisted:

Mrs C is the sole recipient of my contents, thank you. When she allows it, and only on the word of command, that is. 8)
