UK gets new E-minister

With industry experience? Shurely shome...

E-minister Douglas Alexander has been shunted to the Cabinet Office as part of the Government's reshuffle following yesterday's resignation of Transport Minister Stephen Byers.

Alexander has been replaced by Stephen Timms, MP for East Ham.

The former schools minister worked for 15 years in the computing and telecoms industry, first for Logica and then for Ovum, where he managed its telecoms reports.

According to his biog he's well into IT. And he likes rambling.
