Calling All Politicos: Pick your fantasy NI Executive

For most reading  this blog this will be the type of transfers you’ll be interested in. For just a few minutes imagine you’re the First Minister and you get to choose an Executive. Choices must be from within the current Assembly and sure we will use the new departments,

  • Department for Communities
  • Department for the Economy
  • Department of Education
  • Department of Health
  • Department for Infrastructure
  • Department of Justice
  • Department of Finance
  • Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs.

My picks would be

  • Department for Communities- Alex Attwood
  • Department for the Economy- Máirtín Ó Muilleoir
  • Department of Education- Chris Hazzard
  • Department of Health- Jim Wells
  • Department for Infrastructure- Arlene Foster
  • Department of Justice- Brenda Hale
  • Department of Finance- Simon Hamilton
  • Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs-Colum Eastwood.
