Ghost Cabinet

One dark night, some leading anti-government bloggers decided that it would be a good idea to form a crack unit to provide firm government opposition. They decided to form a Ghost Cabinet. This team is to be organised like a Cabinet. The initial appointments are all popular bloggers with a strong interest or expertise in the given policy area. Freed from usual constraints such as collective responsibility or needing to win an election or grab a headline, these ghosts eschew normal political conventions by presenting ideas that will actually improve the country.Each ghost vows to haunt the relevant government minister on a regular basis. Further, ghosts offer alternative policies in monthly "blue moon thinking" slots and may occasionally host a guest ghost. I am delighted to have been asked to be the Ghost Attorney General and will take on the name of the Ghost of the Common Law! It is being launched tomorrow at http://ghostcabinet.blogspot.com/. Please add a link to your own site if it is of interest.

I like your graphic. Is it expensive to rent a barrister ghost?
