Or just shiggled about a bit?
From Lord Falconer and Goldsmith to Jack Straw and Baroness Scotland? Blimey.
I suspect that Baroness Scotland shouldn’t get too comfy. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the Attorney General role was split shortly, with an independent chief prosecutor role and a government legal advisor role. After all, Brown has made a first stab at getting rid of the appearance of impropriety by relieving civil servants of having to obey the Prime Minister’s special advisors. But it will be interesting to see how the Baroness does, having had a fairly quiet spell as Minister for the Criminal Justice System and Law Reform since 2003.
Jack Straw? Um.
