Reshuffle reactions: your essential guide

Much reaction on the blogs and elsewhere to yesterday’s Lib Dem shadow cabinet announcements. Here are the links:

* Home Affairs for Huhne on Peter Welch’s Eastern/European blog.

* Clegg keeps Compo! on Martin Land’s New Model Army blog.

* Steve Webb given environment role on David Nikel’s The Golden Side of the Moon

* Great role for Chris Huhne on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog.

* A strong team astrologically on John’s Liberal Revolution blog.

* The New Shadow Cabinet – The Scottish Perspective on Stephen Glenn’s Linlithgow Journal

* All change please on The Bombastic Bedouin.

* Shadow Cabinet reshuffle on Lynne Featherstone MP’s Parliament and Haringey diary

* Congratulations to our local MPs on Mary Reid’s blog.

* Norman Baker on Rob Parsons’ A comfortable place blog.

* Nick Clegg elected and the reshuffle on Anders Hanson’s blog.

* Nick Clegg names his first Shadow Cabinet on Jonathan Calder’s Liberal England blog.

* Shadow Cabinet. Who’s up, who’s down (and who should be) on James Graham’s Quaequam Blog!

There’s also generous amounts of coverage of the new Lib Dem team on The Guardian website here, with profiles of many of the party’s leading lights.

There’s also a typically thoughtful piece by Peter Riddell – ‘Nick Clegg should take a leaf out of Paddy Ashdown’s book – cut the waffle’ – in The Times.

  • There’s been good press coverage of the reshuffle – pretty much all of the quality nationals plus the Mail and BBC.

    I’m slightly perplexed by Michael Moore being described by the Mail as a ‘leading light of the Lib Dem left’ though!

  • God, I must apologise; until he was shuffled off this mortal coil, I’d never heard of Michael Moore. If you had asked me the name of our Foreign Affairs spokes, I would have assumed Ming had kept it!
