Reshuffle kremlinology

One for Labour kremlinologists, this, but the return of Peter Mandelson and Nick Brown to the Cabinet at the same time is significant. These two were the main protagonists in the briefing war that was fought between the Blair-Brown camps in the ‘94 leadership battle and afterwards. Bringing them both back into the Cabinet together could be seen as the ultimate healing gesture by Gordon - which is I suspect how it will be seen within the PLP.

More on the reshuffle later, and in tomorrow's Journal column.

Clearly the last throw of the dice by Brown to bring back two reject politicians,one of which has already been sacked from the cabinet twice.
