    Default Shadow Chancellor

    Hi,

    What is "Shadow Chancellor"?

    The shadow chancellor will use his party conference speech to insist he will not give in to demands from Tories including Lord Tebbit for tax promises.

    In this instance, George Osborne. The Chancellor of the Exchequer at the moment is Gordon Brown - he is the member of the government who controls national finances (sets taxes, and so on). The Shadow Chancellor is the member of the opposition who aspires to do the same if his party [I say 'his', though it could be 'her' - I'm just not sure if there's ever been one] ever comes to power.
