Sky news are just breaking it, Beeb can't confirm yet....

FabulousBakerGirl Tue 02-Jun-09 13:12:25

seems true

Not leaving the Cabinet? So that means someone else must be on the move too, to free up a job for her to take.

I like how she's left it until just a few days before she would inevitably be sacked in a post-election reshuffle. I wonder who'll be the new Home Sec...

Martha Kearney is giving HH a bit of a grilling on R4 at the mo.

fav quote so far "Sounds like the wheels are coming off for this Government"

who is actually running the country atm?

Yeah, she'll step down at the next election probably, just like so many of them. Making sure their snouts are still stuck in the trough as they get huge payouts and pensions.

Wonder if it will be enough to keep her hubby stocked up on dirty films.

I am grin or maybe DS2 is.

Oooohhhh are there going to be claims in the smellygraph tomorrow about her then and she is just jumping before it comes out that between her and he horrid hubby they have kept Anne Summers afloat for the past few years?

FabulousBakerGirl Tue 02-Jun-09 13:30:01

Stepping down at the next election is not quite the same.

hmm

Its all a bit off a mess really.Wonder if Alisdair Darling will be forced to resign due to his expenses claims?Two other lab mps have gone also,citing family commitments.

daftpunk Tue 02-Jun-09 13:35:50

FBG..i'm sure you'd both do a great job!...just pass your expenses through me first ok...

FabulousBakerGirl Tue 02-Jun-09 13:45:46

I don't need any expenses. Just enough to make a daily cake. grin

daftpunk Tue 02-Jun-09 13:49:28

is the cake in the shape of a castle (with moat)...and will you ever actually live in it?

FabulousBakerGirl Tue 02-Jun-09 14:02:01

I can do one in the shape on a mini and my DS will scoff it live in it. grin

daftpunk Tue 02-Jun-09 14:07:35

expenses passed.....you can have your cake.. and eat it...

FabulousBakerGirl Tue 02-Jun-09 14:12:33

Thank you grin

I can't see her being given another job in the cabinet. i hope not anyway she always comes across as being a bit thick.
