MHP Communications has identified the top ten MPs from 2010’s new parliamentary intake who will make it to the frontbenches and be the loudest and most listened to in 2011.
Based on their performance since the General Election in making their voice heard in the House of Commons, securing early promotion to party position and achieving media coverage with their campaigns, MHP predicts that these MPs from the ‘Class of 2010’ will be the ones who will most impress in the coming year:
There was a lot of hype and anticipation about certain parliamentary candidates in the run-up to the General Election but the last eight months have shown who are actually the rising stars that party leaders will be taking notice of.
These are the new MPs that we will be seeing more of in the media and it surely won’t be long before ambitious new MPs like Nick Boles MP and Chuka Umunna MP become front benchers.
These MPs will also be driving through their own policy agendas in 2011. Stella Creasy MP has impressed with her campaign on the issue of loan sharking, and after getting a taste for the profile boost that even an unsuccessful Private Members Bill can provide, we are sure that Rebecca Harris MP will be considering her next move.
Some of our ‘Top Ten for 2011’ will already be familiar faces whilst others will, until now, have only been known to those in Westminster circles. However, whether in-house or in consultancy, these will be the MPs who public affairs professionals will want to speak to in 2011 because of their strength as campaigners and ability to influence the policy agenda.
