All together now.

'There's only one David Miliband'

The idea that there might be two + Ed is frankly disturbing.

30-40 really is a list of horrors...

Gosh ! Nick Clegg is on top of Ian Paisley. And Clegg has almost caught up with Boris Johnson. Crikey !

"Nick Clegg is on top of Ian Paisley"

Now that would be some gossip....

Nigel Farage, is he still going? I thought he had disappeared of the face of the earth with the rest of wekip

Its good to see Yvette Cooper does not make the list. Any list she might be top of would make pretty frightening reading.

How come Douglas Alexander managed a score? We have neither seen or heard from the man since his sister got into difficulties over dodgy donations!

Chris Paul said...

Nick Clegg is the highest climber is he? But way below Huhne and with the same climb in places as your little salamander Ken Livingstone.

Sorry, Chris . Livingstone has gone DOWN 6 places and declined significantly in percentage share
