Lobbyists prepare for second coming of Iain Duncan Smith

Lobbyists have been advised that Iain Duncan-Smith will definitely make  a comeback should the Tories win the election.

At a packed Fishburn Hedges beakfast event this morning, the authoritiative Peter Riddell said the main question mark hanging over a Cameron cabinet concerned the role that the self-styled quiet man of British politics would get in it.

The Times chief political commentator reckoned that IDS may well get his own ‘social justice and cohesion’ department. Failing that IDS  will get a seat in the cabinet and a ‘roving brief’, said Riddell.

So, if you see a bunch of lobbyists hanging out with IDS over the next few weeks, you know why!

Meanwhile Fishburn has produced a guide to winning over rookie MPs managing the transition. It advises that in the first few weeks new MPs will appreciate ‘any practical help that you can provide…’.

Like selecting a good restaurant, perhaps…?!
