13.06 Baroness Cathy Ashton (cuurently Leader of the Lords) tipped to replace Mandelson in Brussels.
11.49 Margaret Beckett to the Cabinet Office (so someone says in the comments!)
11.41 John McDonell on Sky saying "I'm not into criticising personalities, but Mandelson's a ****" or words to that effect.
11.32 Jeff Rooker (DEFRA Minister in the Lords) is to leave the government.
11.22 Ed Miliband to head up a new department of Energy & Climate Change. Benn to remain at Defra.
11.18 A correspondent emails to suggest that it might be Lord Mandelson of Notting Hill!
11.07 The Labour spin on this reshuffle is that the Tories will be "nervous" about this reshuffle and will be terrified by Mandelson. You've got to laugh, haven't you? Draper was on Sky earlier saying that this spelled the end of the Tory Party and is a masterstroke by the PM. I wonder if the electorate will be as welcoming of the appointment.
10.57 How on earth is Gordon Brown conducting a reshuffle, when he is live on Sky News with the dreadful Michael Winner in Luton?!
10.27 Caroline Flint may go to the Cabinet Office.
10.21 Opps, forgot to say Nick Brown is tipped to be the new Chief Whip.
10.19 Des Browne to leave government of his own volition.
10.17 Looks like my friend Mr McNulty is going to miss out.
10.16 Boulton speculating that Margaret Beckett will replace Mandelson as Britain's European Commissioner. This would mean a by election.
10.15 Geoff Hoon to Transport. Doubt whether he will be very pleased by that.
10.09 Ben Brogan reports that Damian McBride will leave his job as Brown's spokesman. Is he copping it for the Ruth Kelly debacle?
10.05 Jon Cruddas tipped to replace Caroline Flint at Housing - the job he turned down last year.
10.00 Mandelson replaces Hutton at Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform - an eye catching, not to say astonishing move. Has there ever been a politician who has come back to the Cabinet after two resignations?
