Next up in this year’s ConHome awards is ‘Parliamentarian of the Year’, where our readers chose which Conservative MP they felt had been most effective this year.

This year’s nominees highlight how there are many different ways for an MP to make an impact, from single-issue campaigning to procedural warfare.

The candidates were:

Dominic Grieve: For his effective wielding of parliamentary procedure in pursuit of blocking Brexit

Johnny Mercer: For his campaigning on behalf of ex-servicemen

Tracey Crouch: For her stand over fixed-odds betting terminals

Sir Graham Brady: For his handling of the farrago surrounding the effort to no-confidence the Prime Minister

Another category with a clear winner: Johnny Mercer takes 40 per cent of the vote. In addition to his work on behalf of veterans, his decision to oppose the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal presumably won’t have harmed his standing with our panel.

Beyond that Brady took over a quarter of the vote, Crouch another fifth, and Grieve just 14 per cent.

Here are the results in full:
