A Glaring Omission

Gordon Brown needs a new Cabinet of Talents, writes Louisa Coward, so let's start with a cross-dressing stand-up comedian [Eddie Izzard].

And what about Lee Evans as Minister for Energy? Al Murray's pub landlord as Health Secretary? Ali G might knock up a respectable medallion from the Privy Seal and I've no doubt Brüno would enjoy the office of Chief Whip. If I could stretch to resurrection, Bernard Manning as Minister for Women and Equality? Alistair McGowan as - well, anyone he fancies really - that is his game.

It might be a bit of a shambles but at least we could all be chuckling while Rome burns.

A shambles? I think the word you are looking for is 'improvement' ... even more so considering Manning is dead. There may be teething problems, but a reshuffle could always put Al Murray in charge of Foreign Policy instead.

There is one flaw, though. Louisa still has that one-eyed living disaster area in charge. You know, the one who lies his arse off for a living.

As much as I love Eddie, he is an exceptionaly funny man, knowledgable, erudite, he has actually had 'proper jobs' and I am sure he would be an exceptional MP.
Unfortunately he is Pro-European conglomerate through and through.

and that's why I'd never vote for him.
