Shadow Cabinet ranking – Burnham reigns supreme

11th April, 2012 11:47 am

Andy Burnham reigns supreme at the top of the shadow cabinet league table for the third successive month. The NHS Reform Bill may now be the NHS Reform Act, but that doesn’t seem to have dented his popularity as far as LabourList readers are concerned. Elsewhere at the top there has been some minor movement, but it’s a shuffling of the most popular names, rather than any fundamental change in fortunes. Down at the bottom, Liam Byrne is still rooted to the bottom of the table – he may be leaving the shadow cabinet soon of course. Meanwhile Caroline Flint has shot up 7 places in the table – perhaps off the back of her work campaigning in the South East.
