All hail Lucozade, sweet nectar of the hangover gods.

I spent last night rediscovering the simple pleasures of Medcalf on Exmouth Market, and between sips of my new favourite drink, Leffe Brune, got onto a topic which seems to be in the news a fair bit lately. To wit: Blair, when will he go, who will take his place and who will make up the new cabinet. El Gordo is still the consensus choice for next PM, but he will look extremely cowardly if he doesn't agree to a leadership contest with other interested Labour contenders. Balls, Beckett and Milliband should all get prominent cabinet roles, but as for the others... I reckon that we need to see some new faces pronto if Labour is to avoid extreme voter apathy. However, what are the chances of that happening? I don't think Labour realise just how old and tired they've become, and we can resign ourselves to a reshuffling of the usual pack of suspects.

As such, now seems as good a time as any to resurrect the BBC's Fantasy Football-style Dream Cabinet widget from last September... This would've come in handy last night down the pub, come to think of it. Anyway, enjoy! And let me know who your best picks are, Labour or otherwise.

Sorry, Lady M, But most of the candidates for both leader and deputy leader of the Labour Party are all tainted by their poor records in office and their failure to oppose the Iraq War. For many left- leaning people, surely it is time they considered switching to another political party.

Hi. Leffe Brune's a good beer but in EC1 there are far better options right under your nose. I live in Clerkenwell and write Stonch's Beer Blog. Click my name to get to my profile, then click the link to the blog. Cheers.
