I'm told Gordon Brown called Caroline Flint in to see him this morning. Was it to ask her to join the Cabinet? No doubt we'll soon know. I was at university with Caroline. We had an, er, frosty relationship. She wasn't quite as glam then as she is now. Nice to see a UEA girl doing good, though! If she is indeed promoted to the Cabinet I think she will the the first Cabinet Minister to have graduated from there. Up to now, Selina Scott is UEA's most famous graduate I think...
UPDATE 4pm: It's James Purnell. I knew I shouldn't have taken a punt!
Caroline Flint is glam?
Maybe if you've got your beer goggles on.
She has a gap between her teeth you could drive a bus through and she talks out of the side of her mouth like a London cabbie.
Rough, rough, rough....
Is she the one who turned you.
Dr Germ got her phd from UEA ... most of "The Fast Show" ... Ian McEwan ... elite women at the Beeb (Jane Root, Jenny Abramsky). Be proud!
Baroness Amos? and Lord Strathclyde is in the shadow cabinet.
there is already one UEA graduate in the shadow cabinet, Lord Strathclyde...
There have been one or two suggestions that she might be due for something. As the woman who destroyed the English Pub she would be fitting addition to this bossy booted administration.
I have to admit I probably would let Flint snog me on a first date but she has severe competition from the younger up and coming
“Her nipples were still up and full, pointing out at him like angry missiles.” , from “ A Kept Woman” via the Sun
Broon could rehabilitate Galloway, he's available, for a while.
Can't get any Respect now or something.
Caroline Flint's default position for relationships is "frosty". Nadine (Who I love) has had words with her of late and Flint is by any account, a piece of work. Did she not have the faint glimmer of a feathery moustache, and did she not say of one colleague recently, "I'll piss you out of the window"
Is she brainy enough for the DWP?
Don't know about UEA graduates, but is she the first with a degree in film studies.
Ye gods, not only do they give out crap degrees, but noe they let the recipients into the Cabinet.
The elocution lessons didn't really work, did they? Personally, I thought her cockney twang was at least more honest.
God help us,she is 'orrible.
She is 'orroble. Any relation to Larry?
Surely the fragrant Mrs Cooper-Balls will slide gracefully along the Cabinet Table to take Hain's still-warm seat?
re UAE alumni.
Dont forget "Dr. Rihab Rashid Taha al-Azawi (born 1957) is an Iraqi microbiologist who worked in Saddam Hussein's biological weapons program. A 1999 report commissioned by the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) named her as one of the world's most dangerous women.  (pdf; p. 20) She was nicknamed "Dr. Germ" by UN weapons inspectors. Dr Taha has admitted producing germ warfare agents, but said they had been destroyed. "
She got her PhD at UEA in 1984 and is responsible for many thousands of deaths in Iraq.
Of course Selina Scott was famous for her prowess on the pool table in Union House... Balls all over the place, I heard.
It's Purnell, not the ghastly Flint
Listening to her is like being nagged by the wife .
still a cabinet vacancy at Culture then. Purnell will not be best pleased about this as he will have found CMS far more to his liking than dowdy old work and pensions
Is it just a coincidence that this all happened on the day that the government announced plans to let police hold terror suspects for up to 42 days without charge?
Maybe they are trying to sneak it through while the MSM is excited about hain...
Has Purnell got the Welsh Secretary job as well? He is, after all, an expert at being in two places at once.
Purnell has not been appointed Secretary of State for Wales, according to Gallery News
Ah, but couldn't Flint be the new Culture Secretary? A nice irony, at least.
Caroline Flint does NOT have a sense of humour.
Not at all. Dour and moody.
She's so annoying - especially when she wears her 'puritanical' hat.
Ms Flint for Housing. Should have stuck to your guns Iain.
Flint replaces Cooper at Housing
Never trust anyone who speaks quicker and louder when they sense anyone else wants to speak, or whose default sentence always manages to put the word "and" together at least twice.
Oh and mingers with attitude are to completely swerved at all cost.
Voila, that is Flint. Horrible woman.
Iain, I hardly think that the over sensitive Ms Flint is 'doing well'.
She is a junior cabinet minister appointed in the dying phases of a corrupt and discredited government.
She is the political equivalent of a recently emerged zit on the body dying from gangerine!
And as for glam - only a gay man could consider this fish wife glam!
