Wicked Whispers

Betsan Powys | 11:41 UK time, Thursday, 10 December 2009

Just back from watching Carwyn Jones taking the official oath.

More of that in a moment - the smart senior judge and a biro that didn't work - but already the rumours are spreading as to who he might appoint to his cabinet is at work.

Ieuan Wyn Jones has already accepted his new position in the cabinet. It is, of course, the same as the old one.

So what are the whispers? Jane Hutt not only stays in the cabinet but gets a Business and Finance portfolio ... Leighton Andrews gets Education while Jane Davidson and Edwina Hart stay where they are.

As I say - whisperings and rumours and no more. The suggestion from the Jones camp was that this round of changes would be written on a 'clean sheet of paper' - more a fresh start then, than a reshuffle.

If so, the whispers - even though they are only that - are a surprise.
