Does the UK need a Mary Poppins?

Or a Nanny Mcphee?

How about a Nanny Ogg?

Or do we go nuclear and need a Grandma Weatherwax?

Politically speaking of course!

Brigitte Nyborg should be world president!

Vote for nanny ogg here

I'm gunning for Michelle Obama! wine grin

Or Mistress Weather Wax. (Bows respectfully).

We have Batman and even he isn't helping!

YABU to call Granny a Grandma grin

I actually think Ridcully, with Lancre's witches keeping a careful eye. Would be a better pairing than Johnson and SAGE!

Weather wax and her give of bees to sting them all out of the building!

Only Paw Patrol can save us now.

I'm fairly sure that's Mistress Weatherwax to you.
And the answer is yes. And it needs to happen yesterday.

mbosnz Sat 17-Oct-20 22:44:54

I am very respectful to the Mistress Weatherwax. . . Tiffany?! Are you around? You could be most useful! Or could we have the cheese please? As our Prime Minister. . .

Not Tiffany! (As much as I love her). We'll be overrun with Feegles. Mistress Weatherwax all the way.

mbosnz Sat 17-Oct-20 22:55:34

Mistress Weatherwax was the bees knees and every other part of the bee's anatomy.

I think feegles could be veerah useful in the current situation, if ye ken'?

Granny Weatherwax in charge of overall strategy and Vimes in charge of day to day logistics would be a pretty unbeatable combination.

UnderperformingSeal Sat 17-Oct-20 23:02:52

Sam Vimes for PM if you ask me. Although sometimes I think we could really do with Havelock Vetinari for a month or two, the virus wouldn't stand a chance.

FraughtwithGin Sat 17-Oct-20 23:03:57

Julie Andrews or HM The Queen, because both of them are sensible and stand no nonsense!

IAintentDead Sat 17-Oct-20 23:04:10

Granny Weatherwax all the way

(and the right spelling had already gone)

StealthPolarBear Sat 17-Oct-20 23:04:44

Tbh even postman pat would be preferable to what we've got

Igmum Sat 17-Oct-20 23:05:13

Yes, the Weatherwax-Vimes-Vetinari triumvirate! Why did no-one think of this before? We are saved grin

MinesAPintOfTea Sat 17-Oct-20 23:05:33

There's a lot to be said for a responsible and intelligent patrician about now. The Low King would also be an improvement.

@mbosnz I don’t think you mean “gunning for” Michelle Obama, at least I hope you don’t.

cariadlet Sat 17-Oct-20 23:06:41

The rule breaking would certainly stop pretty sharpish with Vetinari in charge.
