    How good is your MP?

    An interesting idea, having a ranking system to grade MPs on their openness and effectiveness :-

    All MPs should be accountable to their constituents - does the panel think that this
    could be an workable way of achieving this?

    A neat listing. Here's a plot.

    The parties are
    • blue Conservative
    • smudge DUP
    • orange Independent
    • red Labour
    • green Liberal Democrat
    • purpleScottish National Party

    The way to read it is to see whether the upward curve is convex or concave. Convex means a bias toward worse ratings - more of the MPs in that party get bad ratings - and concave is the reverse. Better MPs in that party on average.

    Only Labour is concave / better MPs, by the look of it.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.

    SNP and Lib Dems look good (area under the curve and all that) but what I did notice is that almost all of the last fifty or so are Conservative.
