With so many Tory MPs proving themselves so utterly unqualified to be Prime Minister that Alexander ‘Boris’ Johnson is the favourite to take over running the Conservative Party and with it the UK government, Liam Gallagher has now thrown his hat into the ring.

Noting that much of the debate so far, ever since Theresa May announced she was quitting, has been about how much cocaine each PM hopeful has taken (although perhaps misunderstanding which way they’re moving the scales), Gallagher tweeted yesterday: “My name is Liam Gallagher. I have four beautiful children, I have dabbled in drugs over the years, I’ve had many number ones, now send me the keys to Number Ten. I’ll sort this pile of shit out”.

“ParLIAMent, c’mon, you know”, he added, delivering the most compelling political argument heard in the UK for more than a decade.

Asked what he would do if he was made PM of this United Kingdom, he said that his first move would be to “Get Oasis back together”. Adding that he’d “make it law”, so to force his brother Noel’s involvement.

I’m not sure Liam himself is going to have time to be performing with Oasis if he’s in charge of the country though. It would be unfortunate if he ended up in prison for breaking a law that he himself had pushed through. Still, it wouldn’t be the daftest thing that’s happened in British politics in recent years.
