Gordon 'to sacky' Wacky Jacqui

Reshuffling off on Monday

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Jacqui Smith will leave the Cabinet on Monday, it was reported today.

Citing "impeccable sources", Sky News said the Home Secretary will be a casualty of the expenses row.

Revelations that she had claimed for her husband's pay-per-view porn kicked off the scandal over MPs dodgy expenses back in March. It later emerged she claimed second home expenses on her constituency house while living with her sister in London.

According to the BBC she will defend her skinny 2,716 majority in Redditch at the next election.

Smith is now reportedly expected to feature in a cull of senior ministers next week, following the expected Labour massacre in the European and local elections on Thursday. The Chancellor Alistair Darling is also seen as vulnerable following an embarrassing apology over "mistakes" in his expenses claims.

Smith's tenure as the first woman Home Secretary has been torrid. She's been almost continually dogged by controversy and cockups, including 42 days detention, ID cards, the reclassification of cannabis, the Interception Modernisation Programme, prisoner data loss, etc, etc, ad nauseum... ®
