LEO Varadkar, Minister for Social Protection. It has a certain ring to it. In the Labour Party, that ring would be an alarm bell.

Be careful what you wish for. Labour wants everything on the table in this year's cabinet reshuffle. The junior coalition party wants the rejig to not just be limited to personnel changes within the portfolios held by the respective partners agreed when they entered Government.

On that occasion, Fine Gael got 10 positions and the Labour Party five, plus a Super Junior who sits at the cabinet table. And a party associate was appointed as Attorney General.
