In the ongoing game of political musical chairs, we have now ended up with a May (Theresa, PM) and a Hammond (Philip, Chancellor) at the top of the government. Clarkson (Jeremy, television presenter) isn’t sure this is such a good idea.
“People called May are usually useless but…” he joked, winding up his long-time Top Gear and now Grand Tour co-presenter James May. And he’s not sure chucking a Hammond in will help either.
Hammond (of the Richard variety) is ready and raring, however.
Presumably as chancellor I get help with the harder sums. So that's me and May sorted. Just need to think of a job for Jeremy. Erm…..
Mr May meanwhile has decided that he should give (Theresa) May a call and let her know how May’s Britain works, which includes banning pubs from serving food in pretentious cereal bowls and outlawing using the word “basically” at the beginning of a sentence. Then he got back to the important business of watching Trainspotting Live.
