Return of the Hush Puppy bruiser
Former Chancellor Kenneth Clarke will return to the Conservative front bench as part of a major reshuffle on Monday, BBC News has learned. Tory leader David Cameron has given the role of shadow business secretary to his former party leadership rival. The move will see Mr Clarke, 68, take on fellow returning big-hitter Lord Mandelson, in setting out how to help firms through the economic turmoil.
