Is a reshuffle on the cards?
Unfortunately the group hug the nation seems to be giving itself over the Olympics at the moment can't erase the memory of last week's worse than expected GDP figures and the continued murmurings about the Chancellor George Osborne and his handling of the economy.

To mull all this over, I spoke to Gaby Hinsliff, former Political Editor of the Observer and now political editor at large of Grazia magazine.
First I asked her about the Olympics and the contrasting impact of the Games on two Conservative politicians - one a household name, the other a backbencher who rarely makes the headlines.
