A Cabinet That Knows It’s Stuff

So there has been a Cabinet reshuffle, and Gove has been demoted – you could hear the cheers of parents and teachers up and down the country at that one! I would like to hope he has packed all his stupid ideas into the cardboard box along with the droopy spider plant and framed family snap from his desk, but what if his replacement is even more annoying?!

I know it seems unlikely that that is possible, but these days I would not be surprised. I am just waiting for them to introduce factories for children to be dropped off at shortly after birth because us parents are deemed to be doing such a terrible job.

When reshuffling, always make sure you remove the jokers...

You know what I would like to see in the Cabinet? People who know something of what they are in charge of. So many politicians seem to have made a career of it lately, with little or no experience of other jobs.

I would like to see a former state school teacher as Education Minister and a NHS doctor in charge of health for example.

Stick someone who has been at the hard end of the benefits system in charge of sorting that out, and pop a trained negotiator into Defence.

As for Prime Minister? Well, they have to be multi-skilled multi-taskers, able to answer several questions at once while handling a budget, stopping fights and keeping everything tidy. A Mum should manage it even after a shoddy nights sleep…..

Who would you like to see in charge?

    It sounds like very good news that Gove has gone, but I’m just slightly concerned that all the crazy ideas/ policies were not his, but Tory policies, so they will still exist. It seems so sensible to just put someone who has worked as a teacher in charge of education and someone who has worked as a doctor in charge of health. Sensible, so they can’t do it.

    I agree with Sarah. As much as it seems like wonderful news that Gove has been demoted (and I cheered along with others) I can’t help but think they were Tory policies which shall continue to try and be forced through. However, here is hoping not!

    Also, it does seem sensible to put people with experience into roles. If, for example, you are ill, you go and see your GP. And even if you do see a student doctor, they are supervised by a qualified one. It just doesn’t make sense!

    Having someone in charge who actually knows a bit about whatever they’re in charge of makes perfect sense! But we’re not running the country are we? and common sense never seems to come into the decision making process!

    I thought they had announced his replacement and that they were worse. I had actually got my head around who he was – he certainly made a big impression. Wonder if any of his crazy ideas stick though.Love your idea of someone knowing what they are doing actually doing the job.

    Are you suggesting that they use logic and common sense when choosing the cabinet? It should definitely be handed over to the mums of the world – it work better and cost half as much – and the laundry wold be done and the dinner o the table!

    I agree, before someone is made a minister, they should have spent some time in a related profession. It’s absolutely beyond me how someone who’s never worked in education can decide decisions that concern children’s future too such an extend and I also don’t know how someone who has never served in the army can send countries into war.
