Simon Dickson‘s twitter feed has been invaluable today:
The new department’s url has indeed been registered http://www.ja.net/services/whois/lookup.php?query=decc.gov.uk&output=nice by the lovely Daniel De Cruz. But still nothing there yet.
The detail of the new Cabinet is on the Number Ten website.
A facebook update suggested that perhaps Tom Watson MP, our blogging e-Minister, was being re-shuffled. No official word yet, but Jeremy Gould managed to track down one blogging chap for The Telegraph who mentions him in the last paragraph. It says that he will be working on Government strategy. We don’t think this necessarily means that he is no longer the Minister of all things ‘e’, but who knows.
The new Minister for Technology, Telecoms and Broadcasting: Stephen Carter has an interesting history that seems quite apt in this day of financial chaos. Who knows how this will work out, but it will be worth watching. I wonder if the social tools he uses extend beyond golf now.
I don’t pretend to understand politics or politicians – but I am quite into my comms 😉 – so this appointment probably holds the most interest.
