Hello everyone.
Welcome to the People's Republic of Mumsnet. The republic is currently without a government, so we'll need to start getting organised.

I invite you to put yourself forward for any given position, taking care to elaborate on why you consider yourself suitable for the role.

I've currently appointed myself as Republic Designer, a temporary role that expires as soon as a President is elected.

Positions we will need to fill:
Vice President
Minister of Culture
Minister of External Affairs
Minister of Women
Minister of Snacks

Feel free to make your case for a role, propose new roles, and explore what other things we may need to put in place to become a well respected republic with international clout.

I think you are being incredibly discriminatory for not having a Minister of Men seeing as they are the minority here! wink

DH always calls me minister for home affairs. I would like to be minister for wine affairs though!

Baggsy Minister extraordinaire for chocolate and swearage.

Just thought I'd leave this here, in case you're interested:

Any need for an 'all-purpose battle axe' at all?

MongerTruffle Fri 09-Feb-18 18:28:25

But yeah, I'd be happy to be the Minister for External Affairs.

I could be Minister for Culture as I have made my own yoghurt in the past.

DGRossetti Fri 09-Feb-18 18:30:57

Minister for wine ?

AdoraBell Fri 09-Feb-18 18:32:18

Minister of Snacks would suit me 😊

Ladies, Gentlemen, distinguished guests,
I would formally like to introduce myself to you as your new Minister of MIL navigation I have one therefore I am qualified.

(Looks left, looks right, takes a bow)

I'd like to be Head of the Department for Whimsy and Caprice please (--as Toby is advised to refer to on the West Wing--)

I think it sounds rather lovely in an enigmatic, floaty, beguiling sort of way.

What an excellent point. Scrap the Minister for Women, we need a Minister for Men and any poster who would like to identify as a man.

GlitterUnicornsAndAllThatJazz Fri 09-Feb-18 18:35:41

You've used three adjectives when one would suffice. This strikes me as whimsical enough for you to merit the role.

Can I be the Minister for Gin Related Shenanigans, please?

FuzzyCustard Fri 09-Feb-18 19:19:57

I'd like to be Minister for Kittens please. I am sure that is a VERY important post.

GlitterUnicornsAndAllThatJazz Fri 09-Feb-18 19:21:25

Whats your experience?

DontCallMeCharlotte Fri 09-Feb-18 19:23:49

May I be Minister of Ag & Fish (we have an allotment and a pond)?

DontCallMeCharlotte Fri 09-Feb-18 19:25:09

If QueenoftheSilverDollar12 can remember her experience than she's not worthy of the post.

CrispyWanton Fri 09-Feb-18 19:25:27

Don't we need a Minister for LTB? grin

Gilead Fri 09-Feb-18 19:26:19

I just want to hold a gavel please!

GlitterUnicornsAndAllThatJazz Fri 09-Feb-18 19:26:28

Ah yes, with B standing for both bastard and bitch for inclusiveness.

GlitterUnicornsAndAllThatJazz Fri 09-Feb-18 19:27:05

Minister for Snap Judgments?

DamsonGin Fri 09-Feb-18 19:27:36

Can I be Minister for Happy Cats?
