The last thing Gordon Brown can afford is to dither over the reshuffle. I hear he will, indeed, name a new Work and Pensions Secretary today - so the story by the evening news is one of him taking the initiative. The DWP moves at a glacial speed, but welfare reform will be a major electoral issue. If I were Brown, I'd look beyond the inner circle (ie, Ed Miliband and wee Dougie) and promote a sure hand like John Denham. Blair never got reshuffles right. Let's see if Brown does better.
