Samantha Cameron vs Sarah Brown, who do we like best?

We were discussing this at playgroup this morning, interested in what mnetters think. Both seem quite sympathetic to me, though SC is very posh. Do we care anyway, do we vote for someone because of what their wife is like? Or are Brown and Cameron's family lives totally irrelevant?

i wouldn't let their wives influence my vote
do people vote for a 'person' not the 'party?

That's what I'm wondering, I suspect they do more than they admit.

Sarah Brown is a good person, who never touts her wares, mostly only works for charity, unlike Sam Cameron parading her Smithson handbags.

"Sarah Brown is a good person, who never touts her wares, mostly only works for charity, unlike Sam Cameron parading her Smithson handbags."

I doubt old tight knickers Brown would stand for his wife spending lots of money on nice clothes, Dullwitch . Besides a. I don't give a flying about the Prime Minesterial spouse as long as they arn't an embarrassment (think CB here) and b. someones handbag choice should be the last thing to influence the voting public.

So if someone does some work OTHER than for charity they are a less good person?!

Sarah Brown works for a PR firm that she OWNS. She may do PR for charities, but she gets paid very well for it, thank you very much.,

Not that that has anything to do with anything, but let's not set up Sarah Brown as some sort of saint and Sam Cameron as a scarlet handbag-carrier. They both seem like nice, genuine, hardworking busy women and mothers. You should vote for one of their husbands, not for them, but the fact that their husbands chose them (and vv) probably reflects quite well on both men.

For the record Sarah Brown handed her share in her PR firm over to her partner for almost nothing.

However, the fact that Sarah married Gordon does not lend much in her favour.

I agree that you are voting for David or Gordon, not their wives. But, I do think the personal choices people make reveal something of their character. So, for politicians, I do think it relevant to look at their personal lives.

I don't know enough about either Sarah or Sam to have an opinion really.

I'd rather shag Samantha, for what it's worth.

I couldn't pick SC out of a line up and I would struggle to recognise SB.

Don't know much about either of them tbh.

Well then , continuing in Unquietdad's line of thought, who would you rather shag , Dave (uurgh) or Gordon?
He might be grumpy, but i'd opt for Gordon.

Deffo shag DC rather than yucky GB. Brown looks as though he is missionary position only - quick in and out and off to tax some more poor suckers. At least with DC you'd probably get dinner and a nice hotel too.

And that's David Cameron NOT a certain poster on MN with the same initials...

You're so so right Callisto,GB's favourite fantasy is OBVIOUSLY nothing sexual at all, he prob lies awake at night, dreaming of ways to get more taxes from the British public ,rather than Eva Green.
Still couldn't do it with DC though

Sarah Brown used to look at me sniffily when we got into the lift together at a job where I ran the communications and she was mates with the chief executive.

I am sure she is a lovely human being, but the sniffiness put me off.
