That shiny new Labour shadow cabinet in full

So, Labour has its new Shadow Cabinet. The trouble is that it's remarkably similar to Gordon Brown's last lot of ministers. In fact, every single one of them was a minister under Brown.

And what's more:

  • they all voted for ID cards;
  • of those who were MPs at the time, all but two voted to go to war in Iraq;
  • of the eight Welsh MPs who stood, none got elected;
  • but eight (out of 19) come from the area between Leeds and Sheffield;
  • the nearest Shadow Cabinet member to Cornwall is John Denham from Southampton (more than 150 miles away)
