Could Westminister be turning into Jurassic Park?

With Peter Mandelson, now Business secretary, and Alan Milburn looking into social mobility for the government, there is talk of the Conservative Party bringing back Ken Clarke.

The footage takes a look at the pros and cons of that internal debate within the Conservative party.

According to Danny Finkelstein in the footage:

I think also worrying in this race is how little people actually know who the political figures are. Where some very senior political figres in the Conservative party like Liam Fox or George Osborne even haven’t actually got a very big public profile, and there are few people party leaders can call on who the public pay any attention to or even know who they are, and Ken Clarke and Peter Mandelson are among those people.
