Jo Swinson and Duncan Hames named as rising stars

The New Statesman was selected its "20 under 40" rising stars in the Commons, and there are two Liberal Democrats among them.

Jo Swinson:
Her dedication to issues outside the mainstream - such as a recently launched campaign about body image, not forgetting those Easter eggs - suggests that she is not simply a ruthless careerist. Last year, Red magazine named her as one of Britain's most influential young female politicians, noting that "she is renowned for speaking up on national issues that other MPs shy away from".
And her husband Duncan Hames, who gets a much shorter profile - apparently he is "hugely ambitious".
