Meg Hillier appointed Climate brief

Hackney South and Shoreditch MP, Meg Hillier, is the new Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary. According to my sources (Wikipedia), Meg went to private school and studied PPE at Oxford (quelle surprise). The bete noire of politicians, They Work For You, reckons Meg Hillier has voted “moderately against the policy to Stop climate change”. Not quite the “big beast” appointment I was hoping for. This may not  be a bad thing though. The Energy and Climate Change post allows scope for bright young sparks to make their mark – well, a certain Ed Miliband did OK.

Business Green has a summary of the appointment. For a full list of the new Shadow Cabinet, check out Luke Akehurst’s blog.
