Was also made the party's General Election Coordinator. Was credited with his part of the Autumn 2007 Conservative revival that effectively saw off the prospect of an early General Election with policy announcements to reduce the number of people paying inheritance tax. The summer of 2008 saw him involved in some controversy after visiting the yacht of a wealthy Russian businessman. His initial response to the 2008 banking crisis was somewhat muted, his performances improved as the 2009 recession deepened.
