Fantasy Government Game

While we idle away the hours to finding out who, what or how our next Government will look like, why not indulge in some fantasy football type team selections based on the current crop of politicians throughout the UK, not necessarily Westminster.

I will kick off with Nicola Sturgeon as PM and Jacob RM as Minister for Housing.

Can I add Diane Abbott as Chancellor of the Exchequer?

Why bringk back Berko... Alec Shelbrooke is deaf, so will make an excellent speaker, he can just let them have their temper tantrums then put them to bed for a nap.

Found it online but when I downloaded it, it came thorough corrupted as Government Grand Call of Assassins Kombat, and I seem to have shot everyone.

Speaking of the USA, I had thought that no one could ever make Clouseau seem wise, suave and a master of finessed strategy.

If you look through a lot of their old films and TV programmes you will find some recent manifesto material. They were either way ahead of their time or manifesto material is ridiculously funny, I'll go with the latter.

Shami Chakrabarti Minister of Defence.

Honestly none of the above. None of this crop of politicians are fit to be in government.

What went wrong?

Boris Johnson is PM. Five years ago it was an insane proposition. Now........

Corbyn? Insane proposition. Now.........

What went wrong?

Brexit went wrong.
