Jobs for the boys, or the boys for the job?

Gordon Brown has announced something of a surprise cabinet reshuffle today which has seen a number of new posts created and the return of some old faces. There is a feeling that the PM is looking to create something of a war cabinet to ensure Britain gets through the current crisis in one piece. But is it a case of jobs for the boys or the boys for the job?

While the likes of Peter Mandelson and Margaret Beckett return to the front line it is the introduction of Ed Miliband, the brother of David Miliband, which has caught the eye of many in political circles. Ed Miliband is now in charge of the Department of Energy and Climate Change which will oversee the future of the UK energy market, price increases and how the UK consumer can be insulated from the massive price increases we have seen of late.

Even though the new department seems like a good idea on paper, in reality this area of business has been covered by a number of other departments over the years with limited success. Are we seeing yet another waste of money on a new empire within an empire or will the UK consumer actually see a return on the investment of tax payer's money?
