I’m so glad to have been able to raise the tone of the Lib Dem blogosphere with this poll. You certainly won’t catch me dumbing-down in 2007 - at least any more than I did in 2006.

I cannot understand how it can possibly be that Lembit does not feature. Are Liberal Democrats living in denial?

Why were you so gender-exclusive?

Any chance of a "sexiest Lib Dem of neither conventional gender" competition?

John Thurso MP, nice looking chap, but a dead ringer for Lord Lucan. Except much less dead.

The Guardian's Backbencher ran a "political hotty" column for ages - with Thruso nowhere featured.

I think Jeremy Purvis MSP won the day then - he must be gutted....

If you're talking about Stephen Tall then yes, agreed. I wonder if he realises how big his gay following is. :P
