This is a question Worst Person for the Job

In a week where it emerges that the new Health Secretary is a fan of the hocus-pocus that is homeopathy, tell us about people who are spectacularly out of their depth in a job. Have you ever found yourself wallowing in your own incompetence? Tell us. (Note: "Name of football manager/politician - nuff said" does not constitute an answer)

Sadly I was too young at the time to remember it first hand
but family legend is that he used a broom and some agile shuffling, and not a small amount of skill. My Dad had his own broom, but lacked the other two attributes.
