US Poet Laureate

The USA has a new Poet Laureate - it's Kay Ryan, not a writer who was widely tipped for the post, but a very interesting choice. I wonder whether the UK's next Poet Laureate will be someone similarly below-the-radar (admittedly, my relative though diminishing ignorance of the US poetry scene meant that whoever was chosen had a good chance of being below my radar).
