The Guardian is reportingÂ thatÂ Kenneth Clarke is fighting to keep his cabinet post.
This would appear to be a response to the a story in The Sunday Telegraph, which had a Tory MP on the rightÂ sayingÂ
â€œKen must accept he has had his day and it is time to move on. We must send out to voters a coherent and tough message on law and order and we are not doing that at the moment.Â It is not for nothing Ken is sometimes known as the sixth Liberal Democrat in the cabinet.â€
Stories like the one in today’s Daily Mail won’t help Ken Clarke’s cause either.
Or will the man who became an MP a year before George Osborne was born still be in the cabinet post reshuffle as Justice Secretary?
Ladbrokes have opened betting opportunties on whether Ken Clarke, and some other Cabinet Ministers will still be in the cabinet on the 1st of October.
