Alan Johnson announced he’s resigning as Shadow Chancellor for family reasons. Reading between the lines, could it be because he knows nothing about economics, frequently clashes with Ed Miliband and is just a little bit shit? Let’s hope Ed picks someone a bit more suited to the role next time, who’ll really go for the coalition’s jugular.
Edit (by Owen, not Salman): Miliband’s picking Ed Balls, which could be good. He was pretty effective at attacking the Coalition’s economic policy when he was standing for leader, and given his support for control orders, it’s an added bonus that he won’t have the Home Office brief any more.
