Out of the Shadows

The word on the street is that, on his giving up as Mayor of London, Boris Johnson is to be made Foreign Secretary. Name the present one without looking it up. I bet you can't.

2016 is also said to be the year in which Diane Abbott is to be made Shadow Foreign Secretary, as a supporter of Jeremy Corbyn's Leadership candidacy ought to have been in the first place.

All this, and the Tooting by-election, too. Resulting in the return to the House of Commons of Ken Livingstone, doubtless followed in short order by his entry into the Shadow Cabinet.

With Abbott in place to preclude the great grudge match between him and Johnson, whom might he Shadow, and why?
