Labour voters don’t want rich tax dodgers or Etonians as MPs – no-one wants SpAds

workers in the commonsA YouGov poll for the Times revealed today what we always suspected. No party’s voters want a SpAd as their MP. Not Labour voters, Tories, Lib Dems, nor Ukippers. Especially not Ukippers. Not just SpAds actually but anyone who’s “never had a ‘real’ job outside the worlds of national politics/think tanks/journalism/local government before becoming an MP“. Which would exclude Cameron, Clegg, Ed Miliband and an embarrassing proportion of the Shadow Cabinet.

A majority of Labour voters and Ukippers don’t want old Etonians or wealthy tax dodgers either – though Tories and Lib Dems are relatively relaxed about these things. And very few people are particularly bothered about sexual or financial peccadillos, youthful indiscretions or other ‘skeletons’ for which the Daily Mail is so keen on scouring politicians’ closets.


So let’s hear it for more workers in the Commons!  More detailed results below.

    It’s now a career for the careerist and the people who have either not tried or failed in the private sector. Reeves stated I could have carried on in banking but I wanted to make a difference, yes I bet.

    Little wonder the majority of the people in the UK do not bother voting and why so many MPs did not want PR to come in.
