BBC NEWS | Politics | Glenys Kinnock to join government

Glenys Kinnock is to join the government as Minister for Europe in a surprise appointment.

The wife of former Labour leader Neil Kinnock is to be elevated to the House of Lords to enable her to take on the role vacated by Caroline Flint.

She has the experience - well, she's been an MEP for 15 years, which I suppose counts as something.

But it's a very bizarre move from a PR point of view.
