Here are my guesses as to Ian Gorst's line up - to be announced today, along with a friend who has also given me his opinions. We'll see who is closest!
Home Affairs - Bailhache (we both agree)
Treasury - Ian la Marquand or John Le Fondre (we both agree)
Economic Development - Lyndon Farnham or Patrick Ryan
He suggests that I should not discount Len Norman who is current Assistant Minister - though he may now be wary of the 'Jackson Factor'
Social Security - Francis le Gresley (we both agree)
Housing - Paul Routier
He suggests that Andrew Green may want to retain this and Jackie Hilton may have a go for this one too.
Health - Sarah Ferguson or Anne Pryke (we agree)
Education - James Reed
He has a feeling this could be contested by John Le Fondre who may have a go at this if he fails Treasury either as Minister or Assistant Minister
Planning - Rob Duhamel or John Young?
He notes that Rob Duhamel has said he would like to retain - but he could well choose John Young as Assistant Minister but it is unlikely that another newbie will be offered the main role - not after Freddie Cohen.
TTS - No ideas at all. Philip Rondel is the only name I can think off, largely because of his concern with main drains! But he also has recycling experience.
He has a sneaky suspicion that Patrick Ryan may have a pop at this if he doesn't make Economic Development, Philip Rondel may be nominated but with the Michael Jackson experience in mind turn it down. That said, it's about time Alan Breckon stepped up to something.
PPC - Chairman - Alan Breckon or Roy le Hérissier
He hopes Roy gets it. He has however been there before. He made a good job of it but Juliette Gallichan may well want to hang on to it. I do note that Juliette Gallichan did say in September that she wanted to step down.
So we'll see later today. In the meantime, if you have any guesses, post a comment here. I'll be commenting on the actual choices made tomorrow.
