Just look at America, and forget the whole thing.

A PM putting the country first? Unthinkable. Fuhrer May is attempting to grab as much power as possible, so she can ignore parliamentary review - I did like the dissection of the Brexit Act by that QC fella, fingers crossed a few Tories grow a spine and vote it down, as it will remove any last semblance of democratic process from govmt mechanics.

I think its about time she retired. And then they wrap the whole monarchy thing up for good.

Not sure about that, Aaron. Lord knows I am no monarchist but having a figurehead such as our present queen at least allows us to dicker around with various totally useless PMs.

But I agree with you totally about Mrs Maggie May (sorry, Theresa May). I'd have even preferred Giles Brandreth as PM. Anybody in fact - except the liars and self-seekers we seem to be constantly lumbered with.

How about, just for once, we get a PM who actually puts the country before themselves? And who actually will do anything to see this country thrive in the next few years even if that means going against 'party lines' and seeing themselves lose office?

Time for a little truth and honesty to make a refreshing comeback into British politics?

Very interesting question!  I can't help thinking that Britain should choose a President in the same way they choose their president in Iceland.

Instead of electing a career politician the only thing the Icelandics ask is that it should be a good person... and one who actually has the increasing welfare of the country at heart.

So, in the last forty odd years or so, they have notably elected as President a woman who taught French and worked with experimental theatre...and a man who specialised in research into pagan burials in Iceland...and a lawyer...and a man who was a lecturer in political science.

We couldn't do better than that. So I'd like to see absolutely anybody as president. Except a politician!

To go back to the original question I would suggest that whoever is picked as a presidential candidate should have lived and worked in a country that was a republic at the time.

Ah, you obviously missed the stir his video "Don't Stay in School" caused. He laments what useless things schools teach rather than things to actually equip people for life. Have a look on YouTube for the original and then some of the reaction videos - I won't post a link because, as so often, comments can be a bit ripe, particularly when some miss the point that the title refers to subjects rather than pupils.

Yes, I did miss out on that. The lyrics are really relevant and strong and I commend this song to the house. ;)

He can be the Minister for Education in Jeremy's cabinet if he can beat this guy at the general election

John Glen. Member of Parliament for Salisbury.
Its up to you!

 Birmingham-based political junkie and party hack, Labour member and activist and a Councillor for the City of Birmingham, representing Acocks Green ward.says  "John Glen MP is an inhuman, insensitive ba****d."

David Brown, AKA Dave from Boyinaband.
How refreshing it would be to have someone who isn't afraid to look at things anew and make some useful changes.

I'd vote for Richard Branson, I think he'd make an excellent president and John Humphries as vice president.

OOPS! John Humphries is Welsh is he not?  'Fraid he isnt eligible, unless he becomes naturalised.

I thought it would be OK as he was only the vice president.
OK - I hadn't thought about his nationality!
