The ideal Labour Shadow Cabinet

Have you ever wanted to pick your own Cabinet or Shadow Cabinet? Probably not, but it’s something I did a couple of months back for the Labour Party. I recently found my list again and while I can’t say I’d definitely create the same list today, it’s most definitely a list with a huge amount of talent.
