PM Tony Blair is still umming and ahhing about who should take the role of eminister following his post-election winning cabinet reshuffle.

He's already rebranded the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) as the catchy Department for Productivity, Energy and Industry (DPEI, pronounced dippy).

Former energy minister Mike O'Brien - who was only in his former job eight months - was also responsible for e-commerce. He's how been awarded the rather grand title of "solicitor general" and been replaced by Malcolm Wicks. Whether or not the new minister of state for energy is also landed with eminister's job is still unclear.

A Dippy spokeswoman was unable to improve El Reg's productivity and tell us when the identity of the new eminister would be revealed. She did tell us, though, that an announcement was expected "shortly". Can't wait. ®
