As requested in conjunction with the other thread, please post your six favourite U.K. politicians (alive and in office today) so MPs, MEPs, Mayors, etc.

Last time the ‘least favourite’ thread was far more popular which is to be expected. I think the results of that thread were very interesting and revealing, so hopefully this will be too.


1: Gerald Batten- has helped turn UKIP I not a more nationalist and radical party and save it from the brink.

2: Jeremy Corbyn: Is worth it just for keeping us out of any worthless wars in the Middle East. Principled and anti establishment but just like Donald Trump is slowly being hijacked by the establishment.

3: Ken Clarke: A relic of a time when liberals weren’t completely insane. Completely disagree with his views though I think he’s a good bloke.


4: Philip Davies: one of the few last decent Tories

5: Nadine Dorries: same

6: Dianne Abbot: Hilarious. Is often able to turn your average normie into a raging EDL type, not because they’re ‘waycist’ but because she is rabidly anti white and is thick as mince.

1) Michael Gove - One of the few politicians that still has a vision of what he wants the country to be and the ability to probably achieve it.

2) Rory Stewart - Fantastically talented and a severely underrated politician.

3) Lord Hague - A fantastic orator and statesman, became leader a decade too early.

4) Margaret Hodge - A wonderful Chair of the public accounts committee who tore many folks a new one and somebody who calls out Momentum for what they are.

5) Lord Willets - A brilliant Secretary of State, very intelligent and creative and somebody who should have been promoted.

6) Graham Brady - A man with one of the most difficult tasks in our age (keeping the link between front and back benches functional) and doing a pretty great job.

For a non Zionist you sure like zionists.

Michael Goves vision for the country is basically the status quo and a whole lot of foreign interventions. So more immigration and unpopular and costly wars to boot. Yay. I’d rather Diane Abbot run the country than that man. At least some of what she wants is popular

I wouldn't oppose anyone else's opinions when Corbyn's on your list.
The man's clueless and simply unelectable. It's scary to think about what could happen if he acquired any sort of power.

1. Stella Creasy - She's a really effective opposition politician. She knows how to use obscure parliamentary rules to get stuff done, like funding for Northern Irish women to have abortions in England/Scotland. Her amendments are amazing.

2. Justine Greening - She has some really interesting stuff to say about social mobility, and has done loads of amazing work (look up her 'Social Mobility Pledge') on this since leaving the Cabinet. She's Conservative without being an ideologue.

3. Jess Phillips - She's honest, pragmatic and non-tribalist, and just what the Labour Party needs at the moment. Like Justine Greening, and unlike most of the Corbynites, she's not an ideologue.

4. Heidi Allen - I'm a fan of lots of things she's done. For example, she spoke about her own abortion in the House of Commons, defending reproductive rights and forcing some of her more regressive colleagues to recognise the reality of it.

5. Sarah Wollaston - As a former doctor, she's been the most effective chair that the Commons Health select committee has ever had. She's been great at holding the government to account.

6. Lisa Nandy - She has done some really important work on towns, and the challenges that people living in towns face.

Also have to add Luciana Berger in - amazing work on mental health and standing up to Antisemitism in the Labour Party.

Never got these objections, they dont want to be treated differently to Britain and dont want a border down the Irish Sea, but pick and choose when coming to basic human rights for women to do what they want with their bodies (within reason)

It's really the fault of the politicians there - a large majority of Northern Irish people want the abortion laws reformed (some polls suggest that only 29% want to keep things the way they are). But the two main parties, Sinn Fein and the DUP, are opposed to any reform, which pretty much makes it impossible.

I think many just vote for the DUP because there is no alternative that will guarantee them staying in the union despite these backward policies - a centre unionist party would be great though dont think it will change with deep rooted history behind it - hope this changes asap - in 2018, women shouldnt have to travel over the Irish Sea to get an abortion
