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?
