    Are you mad? I hope she lasts the full five years. It's hilarious.

    Not as hilarious as the next GE will be.

    Won't be surprised if it's a proper hung parliament with Labour and the Tories trying to bribe the minor parties into coalition.

Penny Mordaunt, perhaps, given the context? She was called as SoS for Defence too, but ID is more likely.
    Sounds like Penny.

    That's giving me an idea. Anyone fancy setting up a political party?

    Policy 1 - make all top live football free to watch for all. And cut price ground admission.

    Not sure I will like your policy on cycling....

    You haven't heard my policy on it yet.

    Remember, this is just to get in, it's not what we're going to deliver.

    OK, Football:
    1. Ground admission to be a max of £20
    2. Football is within IR35 and all players must be employed by the clubs on PAYE.
    3. Every club in the top division must have at least 5 UK players, with at least 2 on the pitch at any time. Not allowed more than 1 foreign player in any position.
    4. Only the captain (plus any player questioned by the ref) is allowed to approach the ref.
    5. Goal-line technology to be used.
    6. Clubs to receive bonuses if their UK players end up playing in internationals.

    Cycling:
    1. Bikes to be fitted with bells
    2. Bikes to be fitted with lights which do not flash, but that point downwards
    3. Cycling proficiency test to be mandatory
    4. Fines for failure to indicate, look or obey the law.
    5. "Sportiv" races to be banned, all races should contribute to those directly affected by them.
    6. Cycle clothing should not be black.

    Rugby & cricket to be re-introduced at all schools.

    There's a start.
