New Shadow Cabinet - more like a walk-in closet!

Here's the line-up for the new shadow cabinet. I thought Shaun Woodward failed to make the grade, yet he's back on the front bench. He can't be that good, surely?

Leader of the Opposition: Ed Miliband
Deputy Leader and Shadow Secretary of State for International Development: Harriet Harman
Shadow Chancellor: Alan Johnson
Shadow Foreign Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities: Yvette Cooper
Shadow Home Secretary: Ed Balls
Chief Whip: Rosie Winterton
Shadow Education Secretary: Andy Burnham
Shadow Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary (with responsibility for political and constitutional reform): Sadiq Khan
Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary: Douglas Alexander
Shadow Business Secretary: John Denham
Shadow Health Secretary: John Healey
Shadow Secretary Communities and Local Government Secretary: Caroline Flint
Shadow Defence Secretary: Jim Murphy
Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary: Meg Hillier
Shadow Commons Leader: Hilary Benn
Shadow Transport Secretary: Maria Eagle
Shadow Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Secretary: Mary Creagh
Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury: Angela Eagle
Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary: Shaun Woodward
Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland: Ann McKechin
Shadow Welsh Secretary: Peter Hain
Shadow Culture, Media and Sport Secretary: Ivan Lewis
Shadow Lords Leader: Baroness Royall of Blaisdon
Shadow Olympics Minister: Tessa Jowell
Shadow Cabinet Office Minister: Liam Byrne
Lords Chief Whip: Lord Bassam of Brighton
Shadow Attorney-General: Baroness Scotland

And Jim Murphy's at defence. Ideal for spotting drones.
