Tory Death Rattle/ReShuffle: BBC Radio Manchester Gaffe?

Some interesting exchanges in the comments at Mr Dale's "live" reshuffle blog:

It's kind of off, BBC Manchester is reporting that Osborne has been demoted to energy spokesman, with Hague moved to shadow chancellor? Who gets to be Foreign spokesman?
Bad day for Eton, what ho!

Good Reshuffle, missing only DD, but that was to be expected really.
Paul Halsall, either your good self or the people at BBC Manchester are obviously on some mind altering substance!

As far as I know I am not on any mind altering substance, but BBC Radio Manchester made precisely that claim in their 12 noon bulletin.

I just listened now, and they did not repeat the claim!

Obviously the drowning man Osborne did not go to Eton. Too much of an oik? Or no good at Maths and Economics? Meanwhile (13:30) at least one person at Conservative Home has a good sense of humour.
