An old expression that I’ve just made up is that the best ideas are those you nick from someone else. This blogpost is one of them.
There is a hashtag on twitter called #FantasyCaretakerGovernment where people have been choosing their fantasy cabinet if Boris Johnson loses a vote of confidence in the House of Commons. Jeremy Corbyn’s handlers have laughably suggested Magic Grandpa himself to lead the country. As soon as I stopped laughing and then crying, I decided to choose my own leaders.
There are no politicians in my top team. I’ve just gone for people I really like who largely seem to be good people and clever. They make me feel better, too.
Here then, is my fantasy cabinet. Got to be better than Johnson v Corbyn, hasn’t it?
