Vince Cable tops poll for best performing MP

Iain Dale, that paragon of impartial and erudite words of wisdom on UK politics (occasionally, when he’s not being an unthinking Tory loyalist obviously), has published the results of his poll on which MPs have performed best in the last month.

The poll was open to readers of his website who (as Iain acknowledges) are a rather Conservative leaning bunch overall. All of which makes Vince Cable’s result in topping the poll all the more impressive – beating David Cameron into second place.

Overall this is how the Liberal Democrat MPs performed (the scores are average marks):

1. Vince Cable
10. Chris Huhne
21. Nick Clegg
25. Norman Baker
35. David Laws
37. Norman Lamb
46. Julia Goldsworthy
51. Lynne Featherstone
53. Steve Webb
56. Ed Davey
58. Sarah Teather
62. Susan Kramer
66. Don Foster
68. Lord McNally
70. Nick Harvey
71. Simon Hughes
73. Lembit Opik
74. Michael Moore
77. Paul Burstow
78. David Howarth
80. Danny Alexander
83. Paul Holmes
85. Andrew Stunell
86. Alistair Carmichael

Oh, and:

94. Gordon Brown
