It's Friday: Who's in charge today?
Harriet Harman's brief spell in Downing Street, whether it delighted or upset you, is over for now.
Her office says that she's now on leave. Downing Street has just told us that Lord Mandelson has since taken over the day-to-day running of the government. The slight problem with that, you might think, is that Lord Mandelson isn't yet actually back from his own holidays or even in the country.
But a spokesperson said: 'the prime minister is in charge if any urgent issues arise".
While the PM, as we know, is taking his short break in the UK, some MPs are off to much more exotic destinations. The top prize among those listed in today's Mirror has to go to Nigel Evans, Conservative MP for the Ribble Valley.
Reportedly, he hopes to watch a friend blast off into space at Cape Canaveral.
Update 1508: Now, I hope that cabinet ministers all have their mobiles and smartphones turned on. We've just had another "clarification" on who's really in charge of the government today.
Apparently, it's a job share! A No 10 spokesperson has just updated us saying that Lord Mandelson hasn't in fact taken over the day-to-day running of things yet, and it is in fact a "number of senior ministers who are all helping out".
They are all, apparently, available via mobiles and BlackBerries. So until Monday - when Lord Mandelson returns from Corfu - it seems no one person is in charge.
PS: For those who have been asking, colleagues who have more knowledge of these things tell me the image above is of the space shuttle Endeavour on 8 August, 2007.
