I'm curious to hear from both sides, who people think is going to be able to lead the UK through Brexit now. I really don't know personally.
Are all leave voters backing Boris? Would you like Farage to be involved somehow?
How about if you voted to remain? Is there anyone you trust to take the reigns at this stage?

Sorry OP but hahaha, a dream team?

Jesus and Santa Claus, maybe with Ghandi and Nelson Mandela....

"Dream"?? I think you meant fucking nightmare... or are you a goady journalist from a goady paper?

it was meant to be tongue in cheek.

I am genuinely intrigued but now thinking my title is going to put off serious answers.

And since Farage has been a nasty racist/fascist since he was at school, then definitely not!

May for PM
Osborne for Chancellor
Boris for the backbenches
Corbyn for an off-grid organic mung bean growing commune
Farage for retirement

OP I do understand your concerns and actually we're all bloods worried about who will get us through this bloody mess!

Most people don't think this is a very lighthearted issue op. I am watching the (many) reports of racist abuse unleashed by this debacle on the news right now. Not funny at all.

Theresa May - at least she hasn't compared the EU to nazis.
Nicola Sturgeon - first one out of the blocks on Friday, the only one who seems to have a plan.
Sadiq Khan because .... I'll have to think of a reason later.
Frances O'grady - yes I know, not even an MP.
Emma Peel to kick some ass.
That's it.

Osborne's ruled himself out.

Javid is the only one I have any respect for.

I don't think anyone can lead us through Brexit - it's more a matter if sitting back and seeing what EU is willing to let us have, we have no negotiating power at all, and the longer we leave it the more pissed off the EU will become, and the more damage will be done to EU and "U"K economies

I didn't mean to offend giddy, I have a dry sense of humour. I initially wanted to direct the question only at 'leave' voters, I am curious to know if they are all backing UKIP as I suspect not. I am hearing more and more left-wingers saying they have voted to leave, so curious also to know who they were hoping was going to take charge.
I then realised I was interested in hearing both sides, as a remain voter myself, I am not sure who I would pick (aside from fantasy options like ghandi and mandela).

Javid is the only one I have any respect for.

Based on what!?shock I am one of his constituents and he has done bugger all for the town so why do you think he will do any better for the whole country. He is only in politics for himself and his career.

ManonLescaut Tue 28-Jun-16 20:32:23

Based on the fact that he's Remain, the fact that he was a managing director at Deutsche Bank, so he actually understands trade and economics when Boris really doesn't. He doesn't rule out a Remain PM. After the Brexit vote Osborne was hiding. Javid was one giving statements trying to keep people calm about the economy, despite the fact that he did warn that Leave would be economically disastrous. And he can't possibly be worse than Johnson, who was a shite mayor.

May claims to be Remain but she's not 100%, she wants to leave the ECHR, but hadn't twigged that we couldn't do that unless we left the EU. That's quite a big mistake for a Home Secretary to make. Now we're leaving the EU, we may end leaving the ECHR. She has some pretty dodgy policies - her proposed racist 'right to rent' scheme, and agenda on data surveillance, to name but two.

If I could have anyone, it would be Nicola Sturgeon.

PigletWasPoohsFriend Tue 28-Jun-16 20:36:16

Daniel Hannan would be quite good.

He is a leaver but hasn't gone in for the hysteria of some of the others.

I have yet to meet a person Heidi Alexander had not got on side, within about 5 mins of meeting her. She can lead thousands strong rally or open a tiny park in Catford and still make everyone present feel valued.

ocelot41 Tue 28-Jun-16 20:38:38

Failing Heidi, please can I have Danaerys Targaryen?

queensansastark Tue 28-Jun-16 20:39:07

Game of Thrones - Brexit style...

Theresa May, Merkel and Clinton to steady it and make sure it doesn't all get out of hand.

Destinysdaughter Tue 28-Jun-16 20:39:22

Pooh and Piglet since everyone on FB seems to think they have the answer to unity!😁

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Tue 28-Jun-16 20:42:20

I want a temporary national coalition government led by William Hague, who can come out of retirement for it, and Hilary Benn.
Negotiations to be conducted by Theresa May and Ed Balls who are hard as nails in different ways.

Showmethewaytogohome Tue 28-Jun-16 20:44:46

The X-men

Failing that the Moomins

Wish we could have Nicola Sturgeon fighting for us all! She's been the only one with any direction or leadership!

Since that's not possible, I prefer Theresa May for PM.
Definitely NOT George Osborn for chancellor. He has all the wrong instincts for this situation. Can we draft Mervyn King? We need some one clever, and appropriately educated for the job.

I'd like to see Alan Johnson involved in the negotiations. I like posh English boys, but from experience, they are terrible negotiators (so are the Dutch btw). We are much better off with barrow boys from Essex, or ex Union negotiators like Johnson.
