A little more political intrigue for you. A reliable source at the heart of the ongoing electoral battle tells me of widespread rumours about the make-up of the next cabinet, should the seemingly inevitable happen and Labour win a third term. Apparently, when considering the make up of his next cabinet, our Great Leader Tony Blair is keen to make a swap at the top of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the official government home of architecture. While the future of the current incumbent Tessa Jowell is unclear, there are strong indications that the position might well be taken up by rising Welsh star Kim Howells.

The MP for Pontypridd, a former communist and leading figure in the miners' strike in the early 1980s, is seen as an intelligent minister and one who already knows the department, having previously held the tourism brief. Those in the know largely agree that he would be a positive addition for the department and probably a supporter of architecture. Remember, you heard it here first.
