Best MP? is running an online poll to find "Britain's best MP". Ludicrously, they've short listed Lib Dems, three Labour, and then myself - the token Tory.

See the short list at Only some sort of warped Guardianista would think it a fair and proportional sample of our legislators.

That aside, should one really be encouraging readers of this blog to vote for me? In 2009, I'm not sure "best MP" is an accolade one should aspire to.

What counts is how my constituents vote in 2010. Not how everyone else might vote on in the last week of 2009.
