There has been much talk lately of what job Charles Kennedy should be given in the shadow cabinet. This has been fuelled by both Nick and Chris heavily indicating that they would like to see Charles back on the front bench.
My position for a long time has been that Charles should be put in charge of constitutional affairs. As one of Britain’s most popular and widely respected politicians, I feel that he is the only person who is capable of dragging the subject up the political agenda. The media like him, the public like him.
I am pleased to see that many people are now touting Charles for this role on the pages of LDV. Therefore, I have launched a facebook group, calling on the new leader to put Charles in this position. I hope that many people will choose to join and show their support.
