According to the Daily Mail "senior Tory sources" have refused to deny that Ken Clarke is about to return to the shadow cabinet; possibly opposite Peter Mandelson. An article in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph got the speculation going again. Most Tory members would be glad to see the former Chancellor and three-times-rejected leadership candidate back on the frontbench. But in our survey of 1,816 party members there was even more support for David Davis returning – and support for George Osborne continuing as Shadow Chancellor:
The Cabinet and the Customs Union. Davis could join Johnson and Fox in resigning. Gove might well stay. And watch Williamson.
Is the Home Office blunderingly incompetent, or deliberately obstructive? Bad news: it’s a combination of both.
