Cabinet reshuffles are a great opportunity to see just how on-the-ball government websites really are. How long will it take for the website to reflect any ministerial changes? And is it an indication of the real status of the web in each department? I’ll certainly be looking at sites like the Home Office and FCO to see when they get details of their new secretaries of state up there. With the reshuffle coming a few days earlier than expected, and the departures of Charles Clarke and Jack Straw coming as quite a surprise, you have to assume that the various web teams won’t have been too well prepared. Given it’s a Friday, there’s a risk they may not be able to react until next week… and that isn’t good.
