Experience Required

So, the line-up for tonight's Question Time panel includes Hilary Armstrong, the Cabinet Minister for Social Exclusion. It got me thinking about what sort of experience you need to have in order to get that job.

It's a ridiculous Cabinet position and smacks of classic New Labour speak. I wonder if Cameron will have a Cabinet Minister for Social Responsibility. Can we please stop this nonsense.

Surely it should be entitled "Minister for social inclusion?"

Read her resume - her father was an MP and the Newcastle Machine looked after her.

Her husband runs a front group to make money out of privatising local govt.

She was an incompetent Chief Whip but has the Newcastle Machine
