    Its Easier to combine certain departments . I.e Housing , Transport, DEFRA and Cimate Change. And we don't have enough MPs to form a complete a Full Shadow Cabinet

    We have enough members but we're not appointing them for the sake of appointing.

    Yes. In real life we could probably cull more departments and beaurocrats by merging further. See some of my old cabinets as an example if you can find them.

    As Shadow for infrastructure I shall work closely with the shadow chancellor to pay for my policies and I'm sure my combination of love for the market and pragmatism will both please and infuriate my enemies across the benches.

    Personally I think you should be in the Privy, but then I am just a lowly Liberal.

    Well thank you, a term's worth of good bills and I can't be right as well as honourable?

    You have a lot on your plate, assuming the Government and the Official Opposition view these as important priorities, as the Greens do.

    I'm not a supporter of Corbyn. Personally I feel as if he will turn Labour into a protest party.

    And he is neither right nor honourable, nor is he honest or straight talking, not off to a very good start it seems.
