is this the most anonymous cabinet minister ever?

Is this the most anonymous cabinet minister ever?
Picture editors always struggle to illustrate stories about Whitehall. The Times did a decent job this morning with this shot of some bureaucratic types strolling past a Whitehall street-sign. The caption says “thousands of civil servants” may be losing their jobs. But hang on a minute. Is that just a faceless paper-pusher checking his blackberry? Or a cabinet minister? Take a bow Michael Moore, secretary of state for Scotland. You’ve had your 15 minutes of fame.
