There was good news for our columnist Owen Jones in the disclosure of MPs' most borrowed books from the House of Commons library; his Chavs makes the Top 10. Also included on the hot list, more worryingly, were How to be an MP and How Parliament Works.

A Freedom of Information Act requested by the Telegraph revealed that Paul Flynn's How to be an MP was in fact the most withdrawn book in 2012, borrowed on 19 occasions.

Since our politicians are evidently in the mood for some self-improvement, which other books do you think they might take a glance at? Take our poll below.
