Labour backbencher of the year

As the parliamentary year draws to a close who has impressed you the most from the backbenches?

For example, what about...

Ian Lucas (Wrexham) - hard working, thoughtful MP who gets parliamentarians a good name.
Emily Thornberry (Islington South) - made a name for herself as an independent thinker
Jon Cruddas (Daggenham) - won the arguments but lost the contest.
David Chaytor (Bury North) - a passionate advocate for the comprehensive ideal in education.
Rosie Cooper (West Lancs) - solid, local campaigner.

Below is a list of 10 possible contenders - vote for your favourite. Alternatively you can always let me know who I have missed off and why.

PS - my vote goes to Jon Cruddas.
