I was glad to see that my team romped home with a win of about 250 seats, so dragging myself down to the church hall half an hour before closing time was worth after all.
To some extent these results have fuelled the Cabinet reshuffle that was being geared up before. I heaved a sigh of relief on hearing that Jack Straw was leaving Foreign; he was pretty weak and quite rubbish in that post. Then the shock of course that Margaret Beckett takes over. That Straw was never going to be taken serious on Iran is one thing, but Beckett?! I expect this will become so ridiculous that it should be possible for the Tories to cut a positive profile on world affairs; essential for any comeback. Another plus is the elevation of EU affairs to a proper Cabinet level post. The bad news is that the first Secretary of State for Europe will be none other than Geoff Hoon. 'nuff said.
