Monday's are often stressful. First day back after a nice weekend, not really wanting to get up on a cold February morning. So I wonder whether Edward Davey will be bounding out of bed with enthusiasm or hiding under the covers this morning.
It's his first day in a new job, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. There's a lot of work to do too and it doesn't look like it's going to be easy. As a key member of the "greenest government ever" I'm sure Mr Davey will be working as hard as possible to create green jobs for our economy, support renewable energy developments and prevent catastrophic climate change. It's not often that your job includes "saving the world" as one of the aims-maybe more should.
I hope Mr Davey gets lots done and I hope all of the rest of the cabinet support him and the coalition's aims to better the environment. All eyes will be on the newest member of the cabinet this week but after the news has moved on it will be interesting to see if promises are kept and targets are met.
Good luck Mr Davey, I hope you have a good first day at work!
