Clarke axed in Cabinet reshuffle

Thank god. The only problem is the even more rubbish Reid has replaced him. Surprised Kelly stayed, and very surprised that Straw has taken the bullet for Blair's foreign policy cock-ups.

EDIT: I was premature, Kelly has gone, replaced by Alan Johnston. Prescott loses his department, which goes to Ruth Kelly. Margaret Beckett becomes the first female Foreign Sectretary, which will be very interesting, especially with Ms Rice.
