So for example if you a Tory who is your favourite Labour politician, if you are Labour your favourite Tory, if you are Lib Dem your favourite Tory/Labour politician ect. ect.

Personally I like William Hague, Liam Fox, Eric Pickles, Tim Farron, Paddy Ashdown and John Major.


Be interesting to see everyone else's opinion, and we can leave behind bloody mindedness for a second.

Boris Johnson and Theresa May would have to be my favorite tories, and Simon Danczuck for labour.
Don't think I could think of a lib dem or green politician that I'm very fond of

I actually don't mind Nigel Farage, and I dont think he personally is racist, but I think his party attracts the "wrong type of people" There's being "anti immigration" and there's being "racist" And his party attracts both types of people.

Bristol UKIP are absolutely terrible for this... (See their twitter. It is abhorrent) Though Im side tracking there a bit. Farage, an OK kinda guy. People in his party, no.

Surprised about Mandelson. Always came across as a bit of a sleezeball to me. But did well pushing Labour to the centre at a time when it was their only chance.

Enoch Powell voted Labour and I quite like him. One of the greatest politicians to ever live in the 20th century.

Tory here..

Labour - Margaret Hodge (does a great job on the public accounts committee tearing people to shreds)
Lib Dem - Danny Alexander (the unsung hero, i'd happily see him cross the benches)
Ukip - None
Green - None
SNP - Salmond (hate what the guy stands for but he's a class apart from today's Westminster leaders)

I'm Labour.

In the Tories I like Kenneth Clarke, John Major and John Bercow.
Can't really think of anyone from Lib Dems/Greens/SNP/Plaid etc.

I quite like Clegg, I think he did a very good thing going into government with the Tories and helped moderate them.

In terms of Labour I quite like Keith Vaz

Love Nigel Farage. Regardless of his policies, he's a very good charismatic politician who seems more genuine that the likes of milliband.

As much as I can't abide the SNP, I have a big respect for Sturgeon too. She's a strong politician. Id put her with the ranks of Merkel in that she genuinely believes what she says. I think she's a great politician.

Not a touch on TM though. Love her.

Keith Vaz is amongst my most hated- he tried to ban the Satanic Versus/ he is enemy of freedom. Of speech.

I also like John Bercow, Chris Bryant, And Esther Mcvey

Those saying they don't mind Farage as a character. He's MEANT to come across that way. He is a populist. His basis is appealing to people through personality instead of politics. Unfortunately people are blinded by this, therefore don't actually notice he has no set values of his own, one differing from any other party (except of course, Brexit).
