Nice to see Quentin getting his compensation for crossing the House and sitting next to Gillian.

He'll be getting a place in The House of Lords next.

Nevermind, both have one thing in common - they won't be MPs after the next election will they Phil!

Oh, and who could have dreamt up Gillian ending up in the same Department as her fellow fitness freak Caroline Flint hey under good old Milibanana?

What do you think Phil?

Does going from a job sitting in on Cabinet Meetings to one outside the Cabinet still mean demotion these day?

Or has Gordon just put all his rebels in one place so he can keep an eye on them?
