I have just cast my vote for Vince Cable in the Channel 4 News Political Impact Awards
Here are my reasons:
He's a petrolhead who wanted to take an Aston Martin to his desert island
He loves bees
He was one of the few non-Scottish Lib Dem MPs (Simon Hughes, Paul Holmes and Greg Mulholland among them) who came up to help in the Livingston by-election, stayed for two days and worked so hard. He was polite and friendly to everybody and behaved like a normal person and not an important shadow cabinet member.
He's a massive Strictly Come Dancing fan - and when he was acting leader ditched going to the Federal Executive in favour of going to the recording of the Strictly Christmas Special.
The Stalin to Mr Bean comment - worth seeing again
And, of course, he's the only person who has actually been talking sense about the economy for quite a long time.
