Shuffling the Same Deck

Tony has rearranged the contents of his cabinet. Nothing significant to report. Expect more of the same.

The media try to make a lot of the anti-war sentiment as a cause for Labour's reduced majority. The only problem with this is that the Tories supported the war and did not make it an election issue. Michael Howard tried a few times to say he would not have supported it had he known there were no WMD, but in fact this is unlikely.

Everyone except George Galloway wanted to get rid of Saddam and if Coalition troops had been able to get in and get out in a few weeks, nobody would have said anything. People aren't opposed to the war per se, they are opposed to still having troops in Iraq so long after the fact.
