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.
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?
