    Very interesting...I strongly agree with 2-6 (Not fussed on Boris)

    I think Brown did some good but was ultimately a better chancellor than PM

    But Peter Bone WTF?????

    he's a far right nut that wants to bring back hanging and blasphemy laws
    I agree with your point on Brown.

    I probably should have mentioned I only like Bone for the "Mrs Bone says....". Other than that he's horrible. But Mrs Bone makes me chuckle.

    Daniel Hannan - Highly intelligent, principled and logical in his arguments.

    Ruth Davidson - Despite her relative inexperience, she is one of the best - if not the best - politician in Holyrood. Down to earth and a very capable speaker. In future years she will be remembered as the person who "de-toxified" the Tories in Scotland.

    Rory Stewart - Always gives very well reasoned arguments in any debate he takes part in. Has used his considerable experience in the Middle East to great effect in recent debates in the Commons.

    Nick Clegg - He knew that going into Coalition could be a death blow for the Lib Dems, but he understood that we needed a strong Government. He put country before party and I have a lot of respect for that.

    Jim Murphy - Great public speaker who faced down considerable intimidation by nationalists but came out fighting for the union in towns across Scotland.

    George Galloway - Although I totally disagree with most of his views he is one of the best speakers I've ever seen. He tore down the arguments of the SNP and fought for his beliefs with a real tenaciously which must be respected.

    1- Caroline Lucas. I love the Green Party and that she is a very active MP- protesting on issues such as TTIP, fracking etc.
    2- John Bercow. I love that the Conservative party hate him, and that he quit his job on the shadow cabinet because of Iain Duncan Smith's three line whip on voting against allowing gay couples to adopt. I love his amazing sense in ties, and think he's a brilliant speaker.
    3- Nicola Sturgeon. I think she's a brilliant woman, and will be good and strong as SNP leader.
    4- Lord Peter Hennessy. He came to my college a few weeks ago, and was a lovely man, full of knowledge on the modern prime ministers.

    michael gove - a true revolutionary. we need people to go against the grain, bring in new ideas and do things that are radically different that do not just please people for the sake of it. we cannot just plod along on the same path if we want to see different results, and he knows it.

    jim murphy - honest. he said Labour can't solve all the problems, isn't perfect, and doesn't just sell his party for votes and keeping a job, and he genuinely listens to people. a good person

    Dennis Skinner - hard-working, principled, tenacious attack dog who has always fought for the downtrodden. Tremendous man.

    John Bercow - best Speaker ever, potentially.

    Caroline Lucas - like Skinner, a servant of her constituents who holds interesting radical views.

    Tim Farron - not a fan of his party but he's a very decent man who has stayed true to his principles, and is considered to be a good local MP from what I've heard.

    Andy Burnham - intelligent man who I agree with on a lot of things, but is also a very human speaker who has a good connection with the ordinary folk.

    Gary Streeter - local backbench Tory - I disagree with the Tories on a lot of things but Streeter is probably one of the best local MPs in the country. Far removed from the 'career politicians' people dislike so much.

    Leanne Wood - puts Wales first and actively supports free movement - admitted it was a good thing.

    Nicola Sturgeon - great performances in the debates and willing to give as good as she gets.

    Ed Miliband - more left wing than that disgrace Blair and hopefully he sticks to his democratic socialism line.

    Nigel Farage - although I disagree with his solutions, he's opened up numerous debates and he's a great orator.

    Daniel Hannan - although a Conservative, he comes across extremely principled and articulate with his points.

    Steven Woolfe - if UKIP is to have any future at all after Farage then this guy will have to become the leader.

    Most liked politicians

    1. Nick Clegg - he stopped a lot of pretty awful Conservative policies

    2. Ed Miliband - I loved how he wasn't as smooth talking as all the other politiceans. A sign of true personality and good values at heart

    3. Michael Gove - Although I don't agree with a lot of his policies, he delivers his message in a very clear and direct manner. Not afraid to shy away in a diplomatic way.

    4. Vince Cable - he did a pretty good job as business secretary. Boosted apprenticeships and R&D in Space crafts

    5. Chuka Umunna - He's gonna take the Labour party in the right direction

    6. Liz Kendall - just cus' shes hawt. Although I have no idea why shes running for leader of the labour party - she doesn't have that fierce and fiery personality needed. Far too bubbly.

    7. Nigel Farage - Entertaining character and a good speaker

    Most disliked politicians


    1. Alex Salmond/Nichola Sturgeon - single handedly wiped out Labour's chance of getting the Tories out by gloating about how they'll write Labour's check book. Thanks a lot.

    2. David Cameron - Far too interventionist. Why does he feel the need to block porn and invoke full scale surveillence?! Also, I feel a lot of his policies are more ideologically driven than fact

    3. Grant Shapps - Always comes across as sterile and too media trained.

    4. Natalie Bennett - annoying whiney voice and brings out failed policies that have been tried and tested abroad. She has no knowledge of failed extreme progressive tax rates in France.

    5. Leanne Wood - How has she even got that high up in the party? Very poor speaker and comes across as a second rate school teacher.

    Same as the last thread, only that it's MPs, MEPs and lords that you like instead of dislike.

    an explanation why would be nice.

    1: Nick Clegg: I think he is a truly decent politician and it's a shame that so many people have fallen for the Labour Press offices attempts to discredit him. He comes across very well on his LBC show and talk shows IE the free speech one and the leaders live debates.

    2: Paddy Ashdown (pants down!): helped bring about the lib dems as a contender un British politics. Excellent on QT.

    3: Ken Clarke: for treating the euro sceptics with the contempt they deserve. Is also an excellent minister.

    4: Dominic Grieve: a superb minister and a protected of the HR act from lunatics in the party.

    5: Evan Harris (dr death) ex MP: for his militant secularism and championing of science.

    6: Godfrey Bloom: Purely for the comedy factor and cos he shows that Ukip likes to be PC too.
    (Warning; Scotland Biased lol)

    1. Alex Salmond- Well spoken, down to earth and cares about the people of Scotland.

    2. Nicola Sturgeon- Brought the SNP from 6 to 56 seats. Down to earth, recognises peoples issues, will fight for them.

    3. Patrick Harvie - Leader of Scottish Greens, knows what he is talking about, much more well spoken than Natalie Bennett. Just like him basically.

    4. Caroline Lucas - Important in getting the greens message across

    5. Humza Yousaf - Just a lad

    6. Ed Miliband - Don't really know why he is on this list...ran out of people really. He would have made a good leader imo as the media were very unfair.

    lol Labour didnt lose because the SNP took the seats. They lost because England didn't vote for them. Even if they retained all scottish seats we still would have a tory majority. England voted tories not Scotland.

    The Tories played the politics of fear - claiming if you voted for Labour, you'd get an SNP coalition. The SNP didn't help things with comments like this:

    Yeah as you said the Tories led the fear campaign and the vast majority of english people bought it, not the SNPs fault labour couldn't provide a better campaign. What I see in that video is proof of why labour lost so many seats in Scotland. They have lost touch with the people and their budgets and policies were not progressive enough. What Salmond meant by that (the joke) was that if you vote SNP you will get a party that will pressure Labour on their budget, regardless of a coalition or not. Same goes for pressuring the Tories on their budget.

    I'm going to go with my pre-election top 6 bc I feel like (almost) everyone I liked lost their seats. (Lib Dem voter). :cry2::cry2:

    1. Nick Clegg
    2. Caroline Lucas
    3. Vince Cable
    4. Jo Swinson
    5. Danny Alexander
    6. (Don't know if I can say this because she's an MSP but she was in the debates so it counts) Nicola Sturgeon.

    Good things to come out of the election: Ed Balls, George Galloway and Nigel Farage going away to a dark corner and (hopefully) dying quietly.
