I've just seen BBC News: Clarke in Tory front bench return. After several weeks worth of speculation it's not that big a surprise and it's by all means a good move.
Ken Clarke is still one of the biggest beasts and most experienced MPs in the party and his energy, experience and talents will be well deployed against Peter Mandelson. Often some of the best appointments are the controversial ones and this is no exception. It's time to put past issues aside, as the new front bench have, and focus on the real issue of getting rid of Labour so as to make this country great again.
