The Green Party is today launching its new opposition frontbench – despite the fact that the party no longer has any TDs or Senators.

Instead, the party plans to provide opposition to the government on Twitter and Facebook rather than in the Dáil, according to today’s Sunday Times.

The party has chosen 16 grassroots members to be in the party’s frontbench and “shadow” the coalition government.

That got us thinking: since the party can now basically choose anyone it wants to be its frontbench, who would YOU choose if you had the power to appoint a Cabinet?

Michael O’Leary as Minister for Enterprise? Fintan O’Toole as Minister for Social Protection? Gráinne Seoige in the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht?
