Vadera departure a black-eye for Hoon?

Lady Vadera is leaving the Government, Sky is reporting, and there is a hint of another job she might be moving to.

She recently emerged as a favourite to take the British EU Commissioner role, which has not had a solid incumbent since Lord Mandelson came back into UK politics.

If she is leaving to take it up, it'll be a black eye for Geoff Hoon who has apparently been aching to assume the role.

When he left the cabinet he was given some advisory positions concerning NATO and the EU which were seen as priming for the Commissioner's job.
