Radlett’s MP Oliver Dowden said he is “delighted” after being promoted during this week’s Cabinet reshuffle.

The Hertsmere representative has been made Parliamentary Secretary at the Cabinet Office and will report to the department’s minister David Lidington MP.

Mr Dowden, who only became Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Defence Secretary last July, will now be being responsible for cross-government policy implementation.

The Tory MP said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as Minister for Implementation at the Cabinet Office.

“It’s an honour to be able to serve Hertsmere and the country by helping to ensure that the government delivers on the things that matter to people.

“Of course I will continue to work as our area’s local MP, representing the people of Hertsmere.”

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
