What do the British really think of the Prime Minister? Polls can give us an idea – and we’re keeping track of every one on May2015 — but we can do more than just rely on the numbers.

Gogglebox, the Channel 4 show now in its fifth season, offers another, very different insight into public opinion.

Private Eye recently summarised the election as “David Cameron’s posh but Ed Miliband’s weird”. Do voters agree? Is David Cameron just a posh boy? Here’s our first video on the PM – we’ll have ones on all four major party leaders.
