Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Comment has tended to be Scottish v English members of cabinet. I have not noticed any discussion of the distribution of cabinet posts between English regions.

I was surprised how marked the northern (particularly north western) bias was, when I worked the situation out.

The cabinet, compared to Blair's last, is slightly less Scottish and slightly more northern English. The members who left the cabinet were Blair (North East), Prescott (Yorkshire and the Humber), Reid (Scotland), Jowell (London), Armstrong (North East), Beckett (East Midlands), Hewett (East Midlands), Lord Falconer (East Midlands) and Baroness Amos (London).
