Or rather shadow ministers.

So Alan Johnson resigns as shadow Chancellor.

Ed Balls moves in, relinquishing the Home Office shadow.

And Yvette Cooper takes over the Home Office shadow, relinquishing the Foreign Office shadow to Douglas Alexander

Hmm, clever thing that Milliband did there, passing the Home Office from Balls to Cooper, from husband to wife. That way, the new shadow minister has a decent chance of getting up to speed a bit quicker.

And the fallout of that is that Byrne gets DWP. Nasty.
