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.

Quote of the Day

John McDonnell tells the Gallery/Lobby lunch what the priest told him to do…

‘He persuaded me to do this. He said you need to soften your image. So do Mumsnet and do this…. I’m trying to soften my image.’
