Brown's Cabinet Making: Last Chance to Predict

Fishburn Hedges (which has a drag and drop 'game' as well as their own view) and Iain Dale (bizarre) did theirs before some of the structural clues emerged. Progressive magazine is still open for champagne lovers to bid for a bottle with a superior prediction.

Lord Goldsmith, Patricia Hewitt, Valerie Amos, John Reid, Margaret Beckett, Charlie Falconer, Margaret Hodge

Those decisively IN are:
Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman, Ed Balls, Jack Straw, David Miliband, Alistair Darling, Hilary Benn, Alan Johnson, Yvette Cooper, Nick Brown, Douglas Alexander, Des Browne

May SURVIVE or even PROSPER or take a clunking:
