Naked women day - all women must walk around naked once a week. Or maybe just topless. I'll put that to debate.

Everybody pays their tax to Scamp. Not for debate.

I'd make airfares more like busfares.

I'd send a different chill out album every single day to KJI in North Korea, to try and get him to be a bit less crazy.

That would probably take me a day.

Day two, we'd move on to the usual stuff; famine, war, problem solving, etc etc.

Yeah that's a better idea...

maybe after we've finished that we could get the whole world to take part in silent sudoku and then all get together and bake fairy cakes.

Or, everyone pays a bit too much attention to Charlie H and we'll just start attacking each other.

Either way, topless day is still the best suggestion so far.

I'd delegate all of my work and responsibilities to Bahtaboy and Norm.

We'd end up with a drug and booze fuelled orgy that ends with everyone beating the crap out of each other. Sounds like a good day out to me and one I wouldn't want to waste by having to run the world.

I'd start by banning all religion and the Daily Mail. That should end a whole load of misery and conflict.

Whilst the knee-jerk reaction is to agree. The truth is that religion gives a huge amount of people a lot of happiness, reason, pride and guidance. I honestly think it's the case of the better the devil you know.

The Daily Mail is needed. Who else will report news like this

Wouldn't it be amazing if a situation like that arose and he unzipped and pulled out a monster, sticks two fingers up at her and tucks it back away again.
