We shouldn't be picking spinners because they can bat a bit. we should pick spinners who can take wickets.

Part-time batting spinners have been Englands downfall at times -

Mo
Dawson
Ansari

pick a spinner who can do the job and let Stokes, Woakes and Bairstow shore up the middle order.

Or maybe  a better bet is to let Stokes leach and Bairstow shore up the middle order

I think you might be getting Leach confused with someone else. As far as I know he's in the Tufnell and Malcolm school of tail end batting!

If anything, Leach is a pre-Mitchell Johnson Jimmy Anderson.  No ability, but tons of gumption.

Think Ali still has some life in him but needs to play more county and less 20 20.

Stick to batting 7. I am sure he had an injury around the time they went out to Australia.
