Hunstanton beach was windswept, a bit cold and beautiful this afternoon. Fresh air was blasted into my family’s bodies. The dog loved it.
And one of the conversations was a variation on the theme of ‘who should be leading the left?’ The variation was that my wife and I dropped the requirement that an ideal cabinet should be made up of those in parliament. Who, we mused had the necessary talent from wherever they came? A few rules were made. The people we chose had to be able communicators as well as being capable. And we tried to form a cabinet. We did not get far.
