Shuffles and a Windsor visit

Very shocked to see that one J Hunt has been promoted to Health  don't think he covered himself with glory at DCMS but fear that competency is not the criteria here. New DCMS boss is Maria Miller a woman who presented herself as member of the public in Tory election broadcast so we can worry about this too as she takes action (or not) following the prolonged Leveson  press enquiry.
Anna Soubry MP (conservative)  in the news as a health minister saying Euthanasia should be looked at  tend to agree with her - in fact I worked with Anna about 30 years ago when she was employed by Central news as a TV reporter. She presented live from Wick (in Scotland) into ITN news broadcast using very early fly away SNG.

We went to Windsor for afternoon tea today - don't think I'd visited before it was quite pleasant and got loads of bargains at the local Lakeland shop - including a chipmaker at better than half price.
