New DWP secretary

Peter Hain is the new Work and Pensions minister. This is quite surprising, but then not many were tipped for this position anyway. Hain dropped out second in the leadership race. His new role is certainly a bigger task than his previous one, with visionary pension and welfare reform under way. It will be interesting how DWP will position itself vis-à-vis the Treasury.
