    MP for some consistuency in Cornwall so I can have a nice second home on the Cornish seaside with a moat, claiming expenses for every pasty, cocktail and prostitute I buy.

    Jokes aside, I like the idea of foreign secretary or a role to do with sport, culture or tourism.

    No, but judging by the recent trend of chancellors, you do have to be completely incompetent in basic economics and be devoid of financial accountability.

    Meh.

    If you've been in the Home Office more than a fortnight, and you haven't demolished the notion of the databse state and ID cards, then you are a waste of space, just like the rest.

    Combine that with his betrayal of Gary McKinnon, and I'm completely unconvinced by his political leanings.

    I imagine Chancellor would be reasonably interesting, although you'd have to take a lot of flak and whatnot, so maybe something like Foreign Secretary instead

    I know that and I didn't say I wanted to hold all of them besides James Callaghan is the only person to date to have served in all four positions
