Since Juncker came to power, the whole European Commission has been a hive of activity. Well not the whole Commission, according to whispers that have wound their way to Heard in Europe.
A number of former spokespeople have found themselves somewhat at a loose end since the transition. Not all “spokes” got a plum reassignment to a cabinet. Some got absolutely no reassignment at all.
