Who Would You Want as President/Dictator?

#1
Let's not beat about the bush, this once great country of ours is in shit state!
So, how do we sort it out? Should we remain a democratic monarchy or have a revolution (army led, of course) and install a president/chairman/dictator?
The age and experience of all we Old & Bolders should enable us to make some pithy, witty or relevant suggestions.

For starters I suggest an autocracy and nominate Lord Havelock Vetinari as Patrician. For those unenlightened among us here's his biography:

I suggest Her Majesty The Queen, but letting her serve as a Benign Dictator, a job she'd do extremely well.

Seconded. Her maj has a wealth of experience which I am sure would help us out, and I am sure she'd love to tell our elected rulers where to get off!

Only trouble is, would she want the hassle at her age?
She's done an awful lot for us in her reign, and might just want to retire and put her feet up!

He only has one policy - being rude to Kerry Katona. Can't we have Auld-Yin instead? At least we'll get plenty to read.

Anyone that is rude to Kerry Katatonic is ok with me. I suppose that opens the floodgates.

I always thought he was very Anti-Army. Goes on about our soldiers 'attacking shepherds', etc.

There are better Jocks, imho.

(Agree re K K though - she would be amongst the first against the wall!)

That's the way he rolls. But he is very popular with the members of the Army. Someone has to take out the naughty shepherds.

1) Her Maj. - a good job so far.
2) The Scarey One - one big giggle with endless brews and a tidy Britain.
3) Baroness Thatcher
4) Tebbit
5) My Dad - life in the UK would then be homo free, single Malts at 18:00 and Lee Enfields for all sensible church going Scots and endless reruns of Laurel and Hardy, Dad's Army and Tom & Jerry.

.. off thread, but definitely NOT!
1) RSM PB
2) Any veggies, tree huggers or top deckers.
3) My ex.
4) My sister - Attila isn't Right wing enough for her.
5) Any daytime tv presenters - except Carol and Sian off BBC1 news. Naturally, all their duties must be done naked.
. and finally, me 'cos I can't be arssed

..............Someone has to take out the naughty shepherds.
"I'm not a spy, I'm a shepherd."

"Ah ha. So you're a ......" (go on, I'll let you fill it in) ;-)

I vote for Eccles as President ("I'm a highly skilled technician!")

And Bluebottle as VP.

Oh - Major Bloodnock as CGS and/or Defence Secretary

Could the 'Ying Tong Song' become our National Anthem?

Except during Advent, when obviously we'd have to walk backwards for Christmas.

Keep the monarchy. But benign dictator list would include such people as;

1. Dawkins.
2. The Monty Python cast.
3. Gordon Brown.










OK, OK. The last one was just to make the first two sound better.

Mmm.. just backpedalling eh!
Surely some error here, malign moron more like!

Given that anybody with the ambition to be dictator is almost by definition unlikely to be benign, I think it's time to give the reins of power BACK to the hereditary Royal Family. Since HM the Q is probably a bit old for running the whole thing single handed, the traditional solution is to give the rest of the family roles:
Phil the Greek - the Foreign Office
Charlie - Ministry of Agriculture, Hunting, Shooting and Fishing, plus town planning
Wills - Defence
Harry - the Home Office.
Andrew - Industry and Bungs
Princess Anne Sport, Art and all the other crap.
There are plenty of Minor Royals to fill in anything I've missed, but we could probably manage without them.

Of all the Royals , I think Princess Anne could be an interesting choice .
Amongst civvies , I'd have that loon on LBC James Whale or possibly Kelvin McKenzie .
