Who can lead the UK out of recession?

While Gordon Brown has very much enjoyed the backing of many UK voters for the last few months, with a number highlighting his substantial economic experience and skill at manipulating situations, serious concerns are starting to emerge about his ability to take the UK out of the recession. If this is the case, and Gordon Brown is left wanting, who will take over the reins and pull the UK through?

While David Cameron is very inexperienced in the field of economics, and his shadow chancellor George Osborne has the theoretical knowledge but not the experience, some are starting to suggest a need for change in the UK government. The truth is that David Cameron would struggle but he has sufficient strength in depth in the Tory party as we saw with the emergence of Ken Clarke back onto the front benches. Many believe that the Tory party is positioning itself to take over from the current Labour government when the election is called in 2010.

While Ken Clarke has been something of a thorn in the side of the Tory leadership regarding his views on Europe there is no doubting that he has the knowledge and experience in the world of economics and bringing him back to the front benches could prove to be a master stroke. The time for change would appear to be getting closer but what will be the catalyst for the UK voters to step up to the mark?
