So it's goodbye to Vernon Coaker. The Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary scored a big promotion in the Ed Miliband reshuffle and is now Shadow Defence Secretary.

His departure was expected and, sadly, his travels around the province are at an end.

His replacement, Ivan Lewis , is looking forward to deploying his religion to tell one of the oldest jokes in the book. We will find out soon if Ivan is a Catholic Jew, or a Protestant Jew.
