Housing minister promoted to cabinet

Click to see ‘Housing minister promoted to cabinet’ in a variety of different sizesGordon Brown has opened his premiership by promoting the housing minister to the cabinet. And local authorities will be free to participate in house building, albeit in partnership with others.

It’s long overdue. Housing affects us all and Thatcher’s legacy — right to buy and a ban on new local authority building — has created a shortage of social housing tolerated for too long.

As his theme Gordon chose Reef’s Place Your Hands; a vast improvement on James Blunt, but I’m not sure. There are religious overtones and the lyric — ‘put your hands up, put your hands up’ — could be misinterpreted.
