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.
