Who is the most incompetent Labour minister? asks Iain. That's a tough one, they've all been pretty shocking in their own little ways. The problem of course is distinguishing between sheer incompetence and sleazy tales. Poor old Ruth Kelly does seem quite out of her depth, and there was of course Estelle Morris who conceded herself that she was not up to the job (a rare moment of honesty).
Surely though John Reid has to take the prize? After all, he's managed to float around Whitehall over the past ten years leaving departments in bigger messes than when he was brought in to "fix" them. John Harvey-Jones he clearly ain't!
