Which Lib Dem shadow cabinet job should Charles get?

by Stephen Tall on October 23, 2007

Both leadership contenders have stated they want to see former Lib Dem leader Charles Kennedy make a return to the party’s shadow cabinet:

* Chris Huhne – “The party needs Charles to come back in a key, front-line role as soon as possible. He is far too big a talent to sit on the subs’ bench.”

* Nick Clegg’s campaign manager, Danny Alexander: “We’re all huge fans of Charles and extremely keen to see him return to the front bench as soon as he’s ready.”

The question is what job should he get? (Doubtless a cue for Tory trolls to leave side-splittingly hilarious comments.) And will there be space around the shadow cabinet table also for Ming Campbell?
