The only person who has really been a victim of speculation is Francis Maude. There's a diary piece in The Observer today speculating that he will be replaced by either Chris Grayling, George Osborne or Andrew Mackay.
I've had my differences with Francis but if I was David Cameron I would think long and hard before moving him. He's bounced back well from the failure of the 21st Century Party project and has instituted some much needed reforms in the wider Party. He is a good lightning rod too. The Party's finances are in good shape, the move to Millbank has been smooth and he's organised a successful Spring Forum. We've had far too many 'eighteen month' Party Chairmen over the years. Maybe it's about time that this one was left to get on with his job, without constantly looking over his shoulder to see who is wielding a knife.
