So its all over. The humiliation has ended. Only the second whitewash ever. At least, Freddie is reported to have a plan to win the Ashes back in 2009.
There's been a lot of talk about plans in this Ashes series - and the BBC sports reporter on the spot, Nick Bryant came up with the ultimate plan on BBC News this morning. He told us that after losing the last series in England, the Aussies went home, sat down and came up with the master plan that won the Ashes back. According to Nick, this master plan was to "score a lot of runs and then take 20 England wickets". That was some plan! This has given me ideas for how we Tories can win at the next Assembly Elections. We should try to win as many seats as possible. I think Mike German came up with something similar last week.
If Duncan Fletcher were to resign as a result of our humiliation, we would need a man with tactical awareness, vision and most importantly, the ability to come up with a good plan. Step forward Nick Bryant, the obvious candidate to take over.
