Official: Third of Britons believe Family Guy is BNP front

According to an article in The Telegraph the voucher website MyVoucherCodes did a survey of over a 1,000 people to see how recognisable politicians actually were.

The result should make UK politicians sit up a wee bit.

The very non-politician Alex Ried, the cross dressing cage fighter of Big Brother and Katie Price fame beat the best known politican in the recognition stakes.  Alex had a recognition rate of 84%, while Gordon Brown (Labour Party) came in at 81%.

David Cameron (Conservative Party) had a 73% recognition rate while Nick Clegg (Liberal Democratic Party) had a recognition rate of 41% - but as Peter Jones (Dragons' Den).

The funniest bit to the whole piece?  A third of people surveyed thought that Peter Griffen (the hilariously idiotic dad from 'Family Guy') was the leader of the BNP, instead of Nick Griffin. (see picture above)

Sometimes, my estimation of people goes up.

I wonder how a similar poll would wok out for our politicians and local celebs on this side of the pond?
