Forget Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, you have just been elected the US president. But would you do? To contribute to this assignment hit the green button below.

If I were the president of the United States, I would:

* Bring shades and leather to the presidency.

* Arrest all the previous living presidents for war crimes.

* Pull out of Afghanistan.

* Stop unleashing my flying murder robots on wedding parties in Pakistan and Yemen.

* Kick big business out of Government.

* Have Hugo Chavez over to the White House for hamburgers.

* Apologise for the CIA-backed overthrow of numerous democratically-elected governments since the end of World War II.

* Slash military spending and peacefully explore space for a fraction of the cost.

* Use the rest of that enormous budget to bring about universal health care and lift 47 million Americans out of poverty.

* Dismantle the prison industrial complex and abolish capital punishment.

* End the war on drugs.

* Demand that All Hail The Chief be played every time I went down the pub.
