ALAN JOHNSON MP

Alan Johnson was moved to Education in the May reshuffle.

He has been tipped as a possible successor to Tony Blair and has said that he would be "interested" in being deputy Prime Minister "when there is a vacancy".

Earlier this week he claimed it was an "incredible thing to say" that Labour might lose the next election despite the party's slump in the opinion polls.


OLIVER LETWIN MP

Oliver Letwin MP

Title: Conservative, Head of Policy

Oliver Letwin was made chairman of the Conservative Party's policy unit under David Cameron last year and he oversees all on-going policy review groups.

Previously he held senior posts as shadow chancellor and shadow home secretary.


CHARLES KENNEDY MP

Charles Kennedy MP

Title: Former Leader of the Liberal Democrats

Charles Kennedy resigned as the leader of the Liberal Democrats in January.

As leader he was an outspoken opponent of the war in Iraq and was one of the leaders of the anti war march in London.

Polling earlier this year showed that the majority of people questioned thought that the Liberal Democrats would be worse off without Charles Kennedy as leader.


GERMAINE GREER

Title: Writer and broadcaster

Germaine Greer is an Australian writer, academic and broadcaster.

Her first and most famous work is The Female Eunuch, which examined attitudes toward women and called for an end to sexual repression, making her a leading feminist.
