Other Shadow positions

Some junior shadow ministerial positions and personal secretary appointments have now been announced.

The dozen named today are: Rachel Reeves, Johnny Reynolds, Tom Greatrex, Luciana Berger and Gloria De Piero, who have been given junior positions; also some longer serving MPs including Diane Abbott, Wayne David, Andy Slaughter, Karen Buck and Alison Sebeck have been given roles and Chuka Umunna and Anne McGuire have been appointed as private parliamentary secretaries (PPS) to Ed Miliband.

This means that, apart from Ed-M's own brother who has opted to step down from front-line politics, all the unsuccessful party leadership contenders have now been given jobs on the Labour front benches.

It seems that Phil Woolas can now be added to the above list; though as Political Betting shows, this looks like a bad choice, especially for the Home Office shadow team!
