What job might Lord Hill get in the new European Commission?
David Cameron has been quite clear that he wants Britain to have a big economic portfolio.
According to the prime minister's spokesman, when Mr Cameron met the new Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker on Thursday, he "underlined his preference for securing an economic portfolio that would enable the British Commissioner to play a pivotal role tackling Europe's lack of competitiveness".
The problem is that it is not entirely clear what an "economic portfolio" means.
The list is traditionally understood to include trade, competition, internal market and services, and economic and monetary affairs.
Cameron's reshuffle will be bigger than thought
David Cameron is preparing to carry out a far wider reshuffle of his government than had previously been thought.
Several sources in Whitehall have told me to expect substantial changes when the prime minister reshapes the team that he will lead in to the election.
Strikes present an opportunity for both unions and politicians
Perhaps your school was closed and you were forced to take a day off to look after the kids. Maybe your rubbish was not collected or your phone call not answered at the local council.
Perhaps the museum you planned to visit was shut or you struggled to cross the road because there was no one with a lollypop sign to help you.
Who will be Britain's next European Commissioner?

Hints of defeat in UK battle against Juncker
David Cameron was clear. Despite being at odds with many EU leaders, he would continue to oppose the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker as the new head of the European Commission.
It was essential, the prime minister said, that Europe's elected heads of government chose the new boss of the EU's executive body and not the European Parliament.
Passports make for toxic politics
If you look at the numbers, you can put the delay in passport applications into some sort of context.
The Passport Office processes 5.7 million new or renewed passports each year. At any one time, it is dealing with just under half a million applications.
Reshuffle fever on hold for now
We have had the European elections, the Queen has delivered her Speech and the Newark by-election is out of the way.
So it is time for we denizens of Westminster to turn our minds to the annual parlour game that is the government reshuffle.
Nick Clegg alters stance on MEP powers
This morning on the Today programme, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg made very clear that he was opposed to the European Parliament deciding the next president of the European Commission.
He said: "I have long been very firm in my view that it would set a bad precedent - never mind for Britain - for Europe if you set a precedent that, from now on in, the president of this very important body, the European Commission, in effect becomes a choice entirely made by the European Parliament.
