Metro on Auckland MPs

A month or so ago, Magazine got five (unnamed) press gallery members to rank the MPs. They now have a blog, so the article is now online.

Now I actually disagree with a fair few of their rankings (esp their love affair with the minor party MPs), but for those interested, here are their rankings:

  1. Helen Clark 8.5
  2. Phil Goff 8.2
  3. Sue Bradford 8.0
  4. John Key 7.8
  5. David Cunliffe 7.0
  6. Hone Harawira 6.8
  7. Pita Sharples 6.8
  8. Keith Locke 6.4
  9. Chris Carter 6.0
  10. Murray McCully 5.8
  11. Maryan Street 5.8
  12. Judith Collins 5.6
  13. Jackie Blue 5.2
  14. Nanaia Mahuta 5.2
  15. Jonathan Coleman 5.0
  16. Paula Bennett 4.6
  17. Tau Henare 4.6
  18. Mark Gosche 4.2
  19. Paul Hutchison 4.2
  20. Ross Robertson 4.2
  21. Lockwood Smith 4.0
  22. Pansy Wong 4.0
  23. Wayne Mapp 3.8
  24. Maurice Williamson 3.8
  25. Rodney Hide 3.6
  26. Clem Simich 3.6
  27. George Hawkins 3.2
  28. Lynne Pillay 3.0
  29. Richard Worth 3.0
  30. Darien Fenton 2.6
  31. Ann Hartley 2.4
  32. Allan Peachey 2.3
  33. Dave Heroera 1.7
  34. Ashraf Choudary 1.3
  35. Judith Tizard 1.0
  36. Taito Philip Field 0.6

The means and median scores are:

  • , 4.1 mean, 3.7 median
  • 4.5 mean, 4.2 median
  • Third Parties 6.3 mean, 6.8 median

As I said, I don’t agree with a fair number of the ratings.  Rodney Hide below Ross Robertson is just insane, for example.
