BRITONS have asked Kate Bush to be their supreme leader.
As the country continued its death spiral, researchers at the Institute for Studies found that the Hounds of Love singer is the most popular choice to run the government.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “According to our poll, Kate Bush is well in the lead, followed by David Attenborough although he’s probably a bit old.
“Kate Bush is quite reclusive though, so we need to find out where she lives and then find out if she’s up for it.
“She’ll know what to do about all the shit that’s going on, she’s sold millions of albums compared to Boris Johnson’s album sales of zero. We could have Sade as her second-in-command, because Sade would bring a mellow, calming influence.”
Other popular choices include Alan Bennett, Professor Brian Cox and Yoda.
Mary Fisher, from Swindon, said: “We need an elected council of wise elders who are neither right or left but simply for the good of the country.
“Either that or we need a new album by The Smiths.”
