Mumsnetters' secret political crushes
"I reckon Clegg would be a trier."
"I think he'd be fun & respectful. I think he'd say nice things - perhaps comment on how well I was doing. I like that."
"I think he would be quite gentle and considerate, and I have a soft spot for the geeky type."
"I actually developed a bit of a crush on David Cameron after meeting him a few times. I think he comes across a lot better in real life."
"Less mimsy than the other three party leaders, who would earnestly set out their plans for the evening, explaining how they had been costed and why their proposed strategy was right for you. Farage would just chuck you on the bed and get stuck in, and he'd take you to the pub afterwards."
"I suspect Boris is the only one who knows how to have fun."
"I think he'd talk dirty in cod Latin: 'bigus willius'."
"He's intelligent, funny and normal, and I bet he'd be very giving."
"Alan Johnson. Alan Johnson. Alan Johnson a thousand times!"
"The view from dadworld: Theresa May would be utter filth."
"George Osborne. I know, I know - but I had a dream about him once, and it was good."
"George Osborne looks like he has a dirty mouth."
"He's gorgeous, and the only politician who sounds like a normal person."
"Hot, hot, hot, and hawt."
"Zac Goldsmith - apparently insanely charismatic in the flesh. So to speak."
"Gordon Brown would DEFINITELY be masterful. Ooh."
"When he did that referendum speech last year <swoons>... It's the passion and cragginess."
Iain Duncan Smith
"Random factoid: apparently Iain Duncan Smith smells amazing."
"I've met Andy Burnham and so would."
"Andy Burnham's eyelashes are delicious."
"It pains me to say it, but Tony Blair. I met him once and he was nice, chatty, funny and massively charismatic. He was also very tanned and wearing an open-necked white shirt... I am going to hell."
"Bit craggy, bit of a secret private life. I bet he goes out with that beige mac with nothing underneath."
From further afield...
"Has anyone mentioned the president of Ecuador yet?"
"I know a lesbian who met Clinton and would have headed off upstairs with him in a moment."
"Hans Linde looks like he'd go. Being Swedish, he'd make you decent coffee afterwards too. And he'd have an amazing shower/wetroom and probably a home sauna."
"Obama goes without saying."
