While I think making Vince Cable Chancellor of the Exchequor would be an intriguing move, it behoves on James Graham BA(Hons) – Theology and Religious Studies – to point out that “biblical prophets” rarely end up in control of things.
Moses died before the Israelites reached Jerusalem. John the Baptist ended up on a platter. That bloke Jesus didn’t exactly get hold of the levers of power either (unless that’s how he managed to move that bloody big stone in front of his tomb). Prophets rarely profit.
I posted a petition on the Number 10 website yesterday proposing just this. They have seen fit not to publish it. Can’t think why…
I didn’t know you were a fellow theologian, James! My undergrad degree is also in theology and religious studies, though to my shame I got fed up of being poor and went off to do a law conversion course after that for largely pecuniary reasons.
