Hold the Front Page: LibDems Reshuffle Team for 'Snap Election'
The LibDems believe that Gordon Brown might call a snap election in October. Ming Campbell has therefore reshuffled his team. It's interesting that Steve Webb has been appointed to write the manifesto. Webb is one of the more left wing and cerebral LibDem MPs. Ed Davey swaps positions with Norman Lamb, who becomes Health Spokesman, while Davey becomes Ming's Chief of Staff. Susan Kramer moved to becomes DTI spokesman, while Lynne Featherstone joins the front bench top team at International Affairs.
