Come-back Ken?

Rumours abound that Rushcliffe MP Ken Clarke may be invited back to the front bench by David Cameron.

The Tory 'big-beast' is tipped to be Leader of the Commons - with responsibility for organising Government business.

It is really a position that can be as important or insignificant as the holder makes it.

Speculation has been fuelled by numerous recent television appearances which have seen the former Chancellor talking on the world financial crisis.

There have also been references at party conference to his sturdy economic record including specific praise from shadow foreign secretary William Hague in his speech today.
