    Working in conjunction with UK Politics- and by agreement of Ray for a trial, the MHOC's newest forum game- Name That Politician!

    Each week, we will be bringing you pictures of 10 different MPs in the House of Commons. All we need you to do with your skills is to
    1. Name them
    2. What party do they come from?
    3. What constituency were they elected in?

    Are you a party animal, or maybe a political expert. Test your knowledge with these 10 photos. Then probably Monday or Tuesday next week we will reveal the results.

    Once you think you know who they are, post your results below. Some are easy, but some are slightly more difficult. Good luck and enjoy!

    The photos of the politicians are attached, and should be in numerical order. The pictures are numbered- but if there is any issues, let me know!

    Note: For political experts, which we likely have many within this house, some should be a walk in the park, but there will be others which will be considerably more difficult!

    If you did get those with your knowledge, well done- but we will never know. + Their constituencies. [But if you have to google them, don't bother]

    I didn't know all of their constituencies so I didn't add them in. I know most of them though, other than Prentis and Donaldson.

    I am taking a guess that you live in Banbury as identifying a Conservative MP who was elected in 2015, has not done TV interviews, has not been on the radio, nor has held a high-profile position i, or out of politics is impressive.

    You have identified Ian Duncan Smith as Sajid Javid; I thought a Labour supporter would be able to identify the minister responsible for the benefit cuts Labour opposes.

    No not at all, it's just a usergroup that was set up I think for promoting the May general election but that doesn't really do anything since then and that you could just join, seemed like quite a few other MHoCers were joining it so I joined
