    I was just passing comment is all, not a negative comment or a positive one. Just a musing. I hope this shadow cabinet does well and wish it success!

    I find more perculiar DFID not going back to the Foreign Office, but then again I think leaving the commonwealth is bad enough without also giving Joe the ability to illegally cut foreign aid again, supposing there were no changes moving into government.

    I made the decision to give other members a chance to be on the Shadow Cabinet.

    A Shadow Cabinet with members who have proven themselves to be incompetent is not a good Shadow Cabinet.

    Out of curiosity, which members do you think this is, and, assuming based on your statement you think you could do better, why?

    Looks to be a strong shadow cabinet. Wellzi is a bit of a surprise at Defence and ID but I'm sure he'll do as good a job as everyone else. I look forward to you scrutinising the Government and voting for all of our great legislation

    I'm going to take that as a compliment. A very, very dodgy compliment.

    It's a shame, I mean it's not like everyone doesn't know my opinion on Foreign Aid.

    We never left the Commonwealth, just threatened to
