    I rather like Gove, actually. It's a shame that today's image-concerned culture seems to disregard this man because he appears slightly "odd". One of the politicians I respect most is Priti Patel. Historically speaking, I admire Pitt the Younger and Disraeli.
    I don't think it's down to looks as to why people don't like him, it's more down to his outdated policies.

    It's embarrassing how many people like Boris just because he's "funny". Truly a testament to how easy it is to manipulate the British electorate...

    Aneurin Bevan, purely because he was the architect of the NHS.

    Wants to reintroduce capital punishment in a 21st century democracy? ****ing mentalist.
    I'm not particularly bothered one way or the other about that, but aside from that she certainly gave Cameron and his brand of "Tory modernisation" a fright, which is a plus in my books.

    I'm aware that most people think old is bad, but this does not detract from the viability of his policies one iota.

    Lets be clear that I said outdated not old. An old policy can still be relevant, an outdated policy however would suggest otherwise.

    Nigel Farage. Only politician now who seems to have principles and a backbone.
    He has nothing of the sort. He's a slime ball.

    I quite like Vince Cable.

    BJ has the best personality, but is just about worthy to be called a politician.

    I might have a deviant, abnormal sense of humour as I have never found this man amusing, nor did I get his political appeal.

    Clegg's really rather good. I'm not saying Miliband as we have not seen enough of him yet.

    Nigel Farage. He is in the UKIP party and I fully support UKIP. He wants to buy us out of the EU and ban immigration for 5 years, who wouldn't want that?
    the EU is good, so much of our trade goes to the EU

    If British MEPs are taken into account then Sir Graham Watson MEP.

    Not sure out of the current lot. Historically, Disraeli and Lloyd George. I think perhaps Clegg is given more stick than he deserves, but I'm not sure I would go so far as to call him my favourite.
