No place for Jess. Disappointed about that, but otherwise, fucking brilliant. Just shows you how much talent as been there languishing on the back benches while Coryn was filling the front bench with dross like Burgon, Abbott, and Lavery.

Lisa Nandy's earned a place at the top table and is a popular figure but from what I've heard from her on foreign affairs she has a lot of homework to do. My first pick from the old gang wouldn't be Rachel Reeves either given the erratic anti-immigrant rhetoric she indulged in post-Brexit. But she has a competent reputation, very bright and a safe pair of hands to shadow Gove. Overall Keir's done good to bring in new faces and hopefully can find posts for Cooper and Lammy for eg once the ship's secured. I have little idea who Thomas-Symonds and Torfaen are but I've been reading complimentary stuff from those who know them.
Torfaen is the Welsh constituency that Thomas-Symonds represents. He only has a majority of about 3,500 there, so the Tories might fancy their chance of taking him down at the next GE. Although I suspect most seats which survived the clusterfuck last December will probably remain Labour, unless Starmer majorly messes things up.

Yeah, I think so. He's from Torfaen as well as representing it. Not every politician comes from an area like that, fairly bleak (and at the moment, very hard hit by Coronavirus), though I don't know his family background. He ought to be able to build a higher profile in his new role to help him see off any "decapitation" stuff.

Love that bit about Burgon having been to Oxbridge "as the establishment demands", like that means he can't talk stupid rubbish. I mean, you never hear anybody call Chris Grayling (Oxbridge) thick, do you?
If the last 10 years or so has taught us anything is that going to Oxford or Cambridge does not automiatically guarantee intelligence.

I've heard of the place but I could have sworn a Mr Torfaen was appointed last night. I saved all my booze for the weekend and it shows.

Nick Brown is the Andrei Gromyko and will probably be around in the next decade.
