Sky Trumped

Sky are handing out top trumps cards at the Labour party conference featuring 30 politicians rated for their Year Elected, Majority, Charisma, Looks and Parliamentary Skills. That leaves a lot of cheesed off politicians who have not even made the pack – never mind getting a rating.

The campaigners at the Taxpayers Alliance have also produced a Political Trumps pack, with 52 cards doubling as a normal pack of cards as well – with Lembit and Boris as the Jokers of course.

The Taxpayers Alliance version rates politicians for Years per Department, Media Skills, Integrity, Scandal Avoidance, Private Sector and Front-Bench Experience. Revealingly different metrics from the Sky pack – where the ratings were made by Lobby hacks.

Guido has packs to give away to the three best entries in his competition for a limerick that wittily sums up Gordon’s speech from yesterday. Entries in the comments please.

If you don’t win you can always order a pack here.
