Tara Hamilton-Miller fails to mention two female twits but names all the men.

I shall have to go round and spank some sense into her.

She's not gone back far enough. In the 1970s, Sir Gerald Nabarro was a Tory twit famous for sporting a handlebar moustache and for owning nine cars each with personalised number plates. And how can any such list omit Sir Nicholas Fairbairn, who was cut off mid-flight by Mr Deputy Speaker when attempting a graphic description of the homosexual act during a Commons debate, or Alan Clark for getting his penis out in the hallway of his mistress's flat after feeling neglected during a party.

Neil Hamilton and David Waddington.

Seems to me Tory twits stand out by their very rarity.

You could never distinguish Labour twits from all their same-coloured bretheren.

Nor would there be enough paper and ink to list them. Perhaps Labout NON-twits ? Frank Field comes to mind ....

To show I'm not prejudiced, how about the deeply unattractive David Mellor, and the deeply pink Chris Patten ?

Piper Labour twit par excellence makes an appearance without even a hint of self-knowledge.
