The Independent reports:

Ukip’s only MP, Douglas Carswell, is the least friendly and trustworthy in the House of Commons, a social media survey has found.

The newly appointed Shadow Health Secretary, Diane Abbott, was the most patronising, the same survey found.

Artios, an artificial intelligence company, ‘blind tested’ 1,000 UK adults with social media content from an equal cross section of political parties.

The highest rating for trustworthiness was only 14 per cent for a post by Prime Minister David Cameron. Lib Dem MP Greg Mudholland scored as the most friendly.

Labour MP Stella Creasy was found to be the most approachable with 11 per cent of women and 8 per cent of men agreeing.

On on on wider level, the survey found that left-wing politicians were considered more “friendly” than those on the right.
