Bollocks to that I say. They didn't ask me!

SantaStuckinmyhoover Tue 04-Jan-11 20:16:09

or me...wink

ItsGrimUpNorth Tue 04-Jan-11 20:18:39

Ha ha ha. He's not done anything yet. Wait until this time next year.

frozenfestiveflo Tue 04-Jan-11 21:23:52

what a load of bollocks!

Not surprised Red Ed scored only 9 percent,
he has the charisma of an alley cat! grin

Gordon Brown and Anne Widdecombe were joint third.

Do we really need to continue with the credibility of this survey?

TCOB Tue 04-Jan-11 21:38:15

I fucking hate DC enough to cancel out all the positive votes grin

LadyBlaBlah Tue 04-Jan-11 21:39:33

although this is a fairly robust survey

wink

I see Vodafone voted vigorously for the Tories as their preferred party on the economy...

LadyBlaBlah Tue 04-Jan-11 21:41:43

I once imagined having sex with David Cameron

I have never been the same since.

Labour are going to do very well in the polls until at least 2014. It won't mean much.

This one doesn't mean much either - but it is always fun to wind up socialists.

Quite seriously, though, I do think EdM is going to have to develop some sort of identifiable personality if he is to get anywhere at all. If he keeps up the "earnest student politician" vibe, he will just continue to be ignored.

krisskross Tue 04-Jan-11 21:43:49

couldnt actually win an election outright though could he? despite his party being 13 years in opposition

LadyBlaBlah Tue 04-Jan-11 21:45:57

And David Cameron will always win the "most popular politcian" vote because he is the most famous. It don't mean much wink

As Krisskross rather timely points out, if he is that popular he should have won the election.

longfingernails Tue 04-Jan-11 21:48:02

No. A lot of the failure to win a majority was his own fault - though he has definitely made the best fist of it since.

However, you have to bear in mind at all times the mammoth power of the BBC at the which is always at the left's disposal.

Just today, for instance, Alan Johnson, the Shadow Chancellor, said on the Today programme that Labour would eliminate the structural deficit by 2015 (thereby agreeing with the coalition plan). He then reversed himself and said he got it totally wrong.

What would the BBC have done if Osborne had made such a monumental cockup? Yet it isn't even on the front page of their website.

TCOB Tue 04-Jan-11 21:48:57

Kriss - I'm glad you mentioned that - the fact that he hasn't even got a mandate to run the country does rather seem to have been swept under the carpet. It's considered a little unpatriotic to criticise, I think - after all WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!

Maisiethemorningsidecat Tue 04-Jan-11 21:49:40

Tony Blair <spit> was very popular in his day too...

longfingernails Tue 04-Jan-11 21:52:41

Tony Blair never lost a general election.

Yet every Labour member I know detests him as a "sellout" or something. Ed Miliband seems determined to forget every election winning strategy Tony Blair devised.

ItsGrimUpNorth Tue 04-Jan-11 21:57:08

Always fun to wind up socialists? Just because one doesn't vote Tory does not make one a socialist. More ignorance from LFN.

mycounty Tue 04-Jan-11 21:58:09

Ladyblabla. You point out voting intentions and not who is the most popular politician as we speak.

As far as looks and charisma are concerned David does come out tops, followed IMO by Clegg,Miliband and then the two ugly sisters,
Brown and Widdecombe.

Ms. Widdecombe although not aethestically pleasing, is still a virgin and has very high morals, not wanting her knickers pulled down by any old geezer. In fact she will sue any paper that says she is not a virgin. Unlike Casanova Clegg, who reports he has slept with at least 15 and at least one of those women was sober when he carried out the deadly deed, of the beast with two backs!

I feel therefore that Cameron is also morally superior as he has stayed with the same women for donkeys years.

No, I'm not surprised he is the most popular.

That picture of him looks like it was taken at Madame Tussauds...
