Just wondered. A little bit political...
a) how did you vote last time (if at all?)
b) how will you vote this time (if at all)?
c) what to you is the deciding issue of this election?
d) if you had to make love (not war) with one politician (past, present, senior or backbench?) who would it be?

a) can't remember
b) labour
c) the fact that my MP voted against the war and can be relied upon to vote against the government on things I disapprove of but with them on things I approve of, plus tax credits and working family credits, which let's face it would never have happened after the tories
d)Does he have to be a British politician?

Take a wild stab in the dark

That should have read under the tories. D'you remember how they used to say childcare is a private matter, nothing to do with government?

Re d) no, i was personally thinking of Bill Clinton. He looks like he knows what to do.

Caligula Tue 12-Apr-05 18:43:03

Oh easy then. Che Guevara, natch!

mummytosteven Tue 12-Apr-05 18:43:18

a)I didn't
b)probably Labour
c)NHS and Education.
d)JFK for similar reasons vp!

Caligula Tue 12-Apr-05 18:44:44

Ooh, you'd catch something from JFK M2S, he was such a raging Satyriac!

mummytosteven Tue 12-Apr-05 18:45:31

have to use a condom and a femidom then caligula to be on the safe side

victoriapeckham Tue 12-Apr-05 18:45:44

I think JFK would have been a disappointment. He had chronic back problems for a start and was a taker, i reckon, not a giver, partly the age he lived in.

a) Labour
b) Labour (best of a very bad bunch)
c) family- and working mother-friendly stuff.
d) shudder

victoriapeckham Tue 12-Apr-05 18:51:28

Also Alistair Campbell - who i ve met a few times - is well worth one.

Caligula Tue 12-Apr-05 18:52:13


That's the best PR I've ever heard him get!

JoolsToo Tue 12-Apr-05 18:52:58

have you no standards?!

anonymouschap Tue 12-Apr-05 18:55:03

making sure the tories don't get in
erm, pass - i honestly can't think of any attractive, interesting mp's who have ever engaged my attention

Caligula Tue 12-Apr-05 18:55:07

JT you haven't told us who your preferred politician is for a bit of the other?

victoriapeckham Tue 12-Apr-05 19:00:32

If I had to swing to the right, I'd straddle the Tory's minister for the countryside James Gray, who is very tall, funny and self deprecating. he's better in the flesh

snafu Tue 12-Apr-05 19:03:06

a) labour
b) labour, for want of a truly viable alternative
c) the prospect of having to chew both my arms off if the Tories get in - other than that the NHS and family stuff is big for me
d) I would happily give Campbell one

hoxtonchick Tue 12-Apr-05 19:05:36

i am at one with snafu .

bakedpotato Tue 12-Apr-05 19:05:56

a/ Labour
b/ Lib dem
c/ Iraq
d/ this is shameful, but always had a thing for Ian Lang
(he's the one on top, btw)

RudyDudy Tue 12-Apr-05 19:08:21

a) labour
b) labour
c) the thought of what would happen to the NHS and schools under the tories makes my blood run cold
d) really struggling....does Josh Lyman count???

bakedpotato Tue 12-Apr-05 19:09:18

I messed that up a bit

victoriapeckham Tue 12-Apr-05 19:14:57

Sometimes I like to be taken firmly in the Centre. This is me talking about hot issues \{\with Mmmmathew Taylor}

victoriapeckham Tue 12-Apr-05 19:16:56

So did I. here

motherinferior Tue 12-Apr-05 19:21:36

A to c with Snafu. D, well, I've fancied a bizarre collection of Labour MPs in my time but I reckon it would have to be Clinton, much as it galls me to admit it. I don't even fancy him, but I'm perfectly aware that anyone whoever meets him is, well, gagging for it in about 30 seconds.
