Deputy prime minister Chris Fearne refused steadfastly to be drawn into speculation over what he would have done about the 17 Black and Panama Papers revelations if he were prime minister.

He also declined to say whether he would have Konrad Mizzi on his Cabinet if he were at Castille, saying there was no point speculating hypothetically: “There is no vacancy for prime minister”.
