Cabinet reshuffle

The changes in Government made by Gordon Brown have brought a whole new generation of Labour ministers to the top table many of whom are likely to play a significant role in the years to come.

The appointment of David Milliband as Foreign Secretary was an inspired appointment and someone who has already proven in his previous job to be immensely talented. With many difficult issues to tackle in the Foreign Office, I've no doubt he will prove to be a first-class Foreign Secretary. Likewise Jacqui Smith in the Home Office is an excellent appointment and has proved to be extremely competent in previous positions, she has first-class communication skills and given the events in London earlier today she is in for many challenges ahead given the serious national security issues we face as a nation.

In terms of other new Cabinet Ministers the likes of Andy Burnham, Ed Milliband, Ed Balls and James Purnell takes the average age of the Cabinet down considerably and helps to revitalise the Government. With all the changes made it will hopefully assist in our renewal under Gordon Brown.
