So: How would you vote in a referendum to boost the Cabinet from its current 15 to 39 members to ensure every constituency can have one? Because, as the outrage over what counties got Cabinet ministers rumbles on, no one wants to comment on the enormous elephant on roller skates that is gliding and pirouetting gracefully through the middle of the debate, but that's what we're talking about, isn't it?

Consider the row: it's certainly true that if you look at a map of where the 15 members of the Cabinet come from you will see a glaring, desolate wasteland bereft of senior ministerial representation all along the west coast.
