Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet reshuffle and the role of social media

Ruth Tarrant

8th January 2016

The shadow cabinet reshuffle is fascinating for a number of reasons: the announcements of sackings, resignations and appointments on Twitter, the huge media interest in the shadow cabinet, the lengthy 3 day process, and the short amount of time between Corbyn's initial appointments following his appointment as Labour Leader in September 2015 and his first reshuffle. You can find the latest details on the members of the Labour shadow cabinet here, in the exercise dubbed "The Night of the Blunt Knives" by many in the press.
