POLL: Should Labour bring Alan Johnson back?

Former cabinet minister David Blunkett has said that Ed Miliband should bring back some “oldies” to his top team, specifically the former postman turned politician Alan Johnson.

Johnson quit his role as shadow chancellor in 2010 and has been on the backbenches ever since.

But is it now the time to bring him back? Could Labour benefit from having someone with a more ‘ordinary’ background in the cabinet, or would it be too much like a return to the past? Let us know by voting in our poll.
