Coronavirus has demonstrated why UK Government reform is needed. For it's difficult to argue that amongst a population of nearly 70 million, Matt Hancock is the most qualified to make health decisions.

Under our current system, the Prime Minister appoints cabinet members who head up various departments such as the Health sector. This enables a system of cronyism and back-scratching where too often those least capable are handed positions of responsibility.

Instead, the heads of departments could be directly elected by an informed public whose knowledge of what the role entails would be taught in school.

These heads would be fully separate from MPs whose roles would be solely to represent their constituents - not head departments they are unqualified for.

I reckon that if we put someone who knows about health in charge of health we'd all benefit.
