    It's odd with polls on this site, the last choice seems to get deleted.

    Sorry thought he was included - can it be amended? Suppose Red Joe should be included too.

    Just hit the add option button.

    There should always be a blank option beneath your last option.

    How can Brian Cowen's performance as "spokesperson" be judged in isolation from his performance as Minister (which is a completely different position)?

    It would be unfair to judge the other spokespeople on a ministerial basis as they have no experience.

    Well, no experience of being Minister for Finance. But then, no one has experience of that before the attain the position.

    Also, they don't have several hundred civil servants working for them, preparing briefing material, policy documents and speeches.

    So why include Cowen at all?

    It would be unfair not to include him.
