How about we go completely left field and don't have an MP?

And let's be honest, a former PM would be ideal. Certainly not the previous two, and Blair is too toxic.

So that leaves us with Major and Brown. Two relatively steady hands.

I like this idea.

Caroline Lucas calls for emergency female cabinet to block no-deal Brexit
Being all women would be a nice bit of symbolism. But you can't really have the "top 10" because some of those will be on frontbenches. This has to happen, as far as possible, away from whips. And I think it would be helpful for this "Cabinet" to be led by somebody without ambitions to high office. So Margaret Beckett makes more sense than Emily Thornberry.

Because Lucas, Soubry, Swinson, Lady Hermon, Kirsty Blackman and co are going to suddenly think "You know what, we actually all agree on the major issues!" And hundreds of backbenchers are going to say- "We never realised before but we all agree too! You gals knock up a budget, sure we'll vote for it!"

Abbott seems like one of these people who knows a couple of bits of history that she shoehorns into everything.
