McNulty given responsiblility for community safety?
So as predicted by Iain Dale yesterday, the Sun is claiming Tony McNulty's scalp over the foreign priosner's fiasco. McNulty was the man in charge of the Immigration and Deportation brief which failed to protect the public safety from foreign prisoners convicted of murder, rape etcetra etcetra (you read the news, you know).
McNulty has not been fired though, he's just done a job swap with Liam Byrne, so now he's the Police Minister. Yes, that's right, he's now in charge of the Police and - consequently - in charge of ensuring public safety.
Joined up government at its best! It was sublime, then it was ridiculous, then it became absurd and now it's just plain weird.
