It’s an emergency! So says Caroline Lucas, who has called for an all-female cabinet to step in and block a no-deal Brexit. The Green party MP said her planned national unity government would hit the ‘pause button’ on Brexit while the likes of Emily Thornberry, Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson, Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon and Tory MP Justine Greening stepped in to clear up the mess.

‘In my experience, women tend to be less tribal, they tend to find it easier to establish trust more quickly,’ according to Lucas. Fortunately, in the interests of gender equality, there is likely to be one place for a man at the Cabinet table:  Dominic Grieve. Mr S. has tried his hand at seeing what Lucas’s dream anti-Brexit Cabinet might look like. Captions in the comments.
