The UK is three people better off with news that David Miliband is joining Louise Mensch and Piers Moron in America. But in a reverse of those old balloon debates from school I wonder which other seven folks would you really want to join Miliband D on a one way flight to New York? It is a hard choice in assembling any such list but for what it is worth my top 7 to leave would be:
1. Abu Qatada
2. Heather Frost (and children)
3. Hugh Grant
4. Sir Alex Ferguson
5. Vince Cable
6. Polly Toynbee
7. Cherie Blair ( aka the wicked witch)
The more I think about the more I could pack a whole plane with such folk but having to choose a top 7 there you go. Disagree?
PS. Do you think I should have asked Mr Grant's permission before I published this article?
