David Miliband to bounce back as next shadow chancellor?
William Hill have cut their odds about David Miliband succeeding Alan Johnson as Ed Miliband's Shadow Chancellor from 25/1 to 20/1.
This comes as some political punters are speculating that there is a longer term plan to return David Miliband to front-line politics in the role when the next Shadow Cabinet elections take place.
"The theory is that Miliband senior will be parachuted in to the job when he has been persuaded to return to front-line politics," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
"But we remain to be convinced."
