I've just been looking through the list of new Select Committee chairmen. There are certainly a few surprises.
Paul Goodman on ConHome reckons that many of them are establishment figures who will not be very keen on standing up to Number Ten. I'm not sure I totally agree with that. I think Select Committees in general will come into their own in his parliament and while some chairmen will be more vocal than others, there will be a real impetus for them to display their independence and teeth.
I was astonished by Andrew Tyrie's margin of victory over the pre vote favourite Michael Fallon for the Treasury Committee chairmanship. Fallon has been a superb deputy chairman of the Committee but Tyrie's high profile campaign and his reputation for indepence seems to have swung it for him.
As I thought, Stephen Dorrell got the Health committee, although I am still bemused as to why. Nadine Dorries did brilliantly to come a good second, ahead of Sir Paul Beresford and Peter Bone.
But why, oh why, did any Conservative vote for the oleaginous Keith Vaz? Surely to goodness anyone could see that Alun Michael would have been a better choice. To lose to Vaz must be the absolute nadir of Alun Michael's political career.
And how on earth Margaret Hodge won the Public Accounts Committee chairmanship is anyone's guess. Actualy it's not. The Labour whips went to work and helped her pull through.
And now we come to the elections for the committees themselves. These elections never end, do they?
