anyone else share my middle aged crush?

FannyFifer Wed 28-Jan-15 14:12:45

I may or may not think he is a bit of a hottie. wink

He's gorgeous!

Mrsbird311 Wed 28-Jan-15 14:33:59

Very easy on the eye

Hahaha! But yeah, knocks the spots off our Dave and Ed.... <shudder>

It's understandable, he's an attractive man. I fancy António Horta Osório, the CEO of Lloyd's. I usually fancy musicians.

FabULouse Andy burnham does have lovely eyes, always looks as though he's wearing false lashes (in a good way).

Agree he is very like Antonio Banderas. Wouldn't it be nice to have a hottie as PM instead of Pilsbury Dough Boy-alike DC. In fact, scrap the hottie part, let's hope for ABC (Anyone But Cameron).

I prefer his finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis.
I do have a thing for bald men with high cheekbones in a well fitting suitgrin

holdyourown Wed 28-Jan-15 15:04:34

ooh getdownshep I had not noticed Mr Varoufakis before! I have googled him and can see where you are coming from there.

squoosh Wed 28-Jan-15 15:06:01

Varoufakis looks like a Greek Jean Claude Van Damme. No thanks.

FannyFifer Wed 28-Jan-15 15:08:18

Ooooooh I think I like Yanis even better.

holdyourown Wed 28-Jan-15 15:12:24

Surely a greek Jean Claude Van Damme is a good thing? grin

squoosh Wed 28-Jan-15 15:13:52

Well yes it certainly could be a good thing if one's tastes run to kickboxing tough guys! grin

Maddaddam Wed 28-Jan-15 15:17:33

Oh yes absolutely! Cute, left-wing, activist-type. Am hoping for a Syrizra-stype party to emerge here now. More politicians like him would cheer up our UK election campaign no end. In various ways.

Jon Snow interviewed Yannis on channel 4 news, even he seemed quite taken with him!
I think unfortunately he has a gorgeous wifeenvy

MissJudithArabesque Wed 28-Jan-15 22:18:25

I used to fancy Gen. Sir Michael Rose (led UN Forces into Bosnia 20 yrs ago or so, as I recall). Whatever floats your boat! wink

Blankiefan Wed 28-Jan-15 22:30:46

It's good to be interested in politics... grin

Blankiefan Wed 28-Jan-15 22:31:49

Oooooh.... Yanis.....

Medoc Wed 28-Jan-15 22:58:14

Yannis looks like Will Self crossed with Jason Statham!

I heard Euclid Tsakalatos on R4 this morning, and he had a lovely voice (sorry- I'm sure his mother is v proud of him for other reasons this week!)

I'm so glad you started this thread on political hotties holdyourown as I can now confess my long-standing crush on Argentina's Finance Minister, Axel Kicillof. He can apply some fiscal stimulus to me any time grin

trufflehunterthebadger Thu 29-Jan-15 00:27:46

Haha, one of the detectives from another station came into my office the other day, i had never actually seen him in the flesh before, just knew the name from email. I thought "mmmm he's fit but he is quite old"

Then i realised that i am no spring chicken and the reason i think he's fit is because i also am "quite old"

trufflehunterthebadger Thu 29-Jan-15 00:29:36

Oh my goodness ilkely [fans self and forms orderly queue behind fellow mnetter]

EmperorZing Thu 29-Jan-15 10:11:14

Another vote here for Axel. Nice!

I have form for slightly odd crushes though, the most recent one is in a mid-50s guy the office who does a stern-but-twinkly look which I have to try hard not to flutter to.
