Grant Shapps to be sacked in cabinet reshuffle?

In the Independent, Jane Merrick and Mark Leftly forecast that David Cameron will carry out a "ruthless' cabinet reshuffle this week:
Senior ministers who are thought to be nervous about their position include Andrew Lansley, the Leader of the Commons; the Chief Whip, Sir George Young; the Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson; Ken Clarke, the Minister without Portfolio; and the Tory chairman, Grant Shapps. 
Despite their bitter row, Theresa May, the Home Secretary, and the Education Secretary, Michael Gove, are unlikely to be moved or demoted, because such a switch-around would risk escalating tensions between their supporters and trigger a fresh round of bloodletting.
If have seen no speculation anywhere about a reshuffle of Liberal Democrat ministers.
