"Which MP would you rather have sex with?"
Not the one claiming Alzheimer's.
Forget the tribal allegiances of politics, the truth is the UK's Members of Parliament can't stop checking each other out, with Sexymp.co.uk being one of the most popular sites accessed on the Parliamentary Network. For those unfamiliar with it, the site presents two photos and asks the user "Which MP would you rather have sex …
Scientifically, it's been shown that people tend to be attracted to those similar to themself. One study showed that men are more attracted to women who remind them of their mothers (something I'd rather I hadn't known, tbh). Given that most visitors to the site are probably Caucasian, there's probably a bias there. But I expect most would choose Will Smith over Eric Pickles or Zhang Ziyi over Theresa May (who'd probably want to film the event for GCHQ). So I don't think this is too much cause for alarm. So long as it doesn't affect how someone votes it's not a problem.
And if you are voting for your MP based on attractiveness, you might want to have a good think about that..
"And if you are voting for your MP based on attractiveness, you might want to have a good think about that.."
Er, isn't that exactly what the party spin machines and media circus tried to get us to do?
I'll have to 'fess up to being ever-so-slightly influenced by that myself, as I think Ed Miliband bears an unsettling resemblance to a young Oswald Mosley. That, plus Labour's appalling record on civil liberties, persuaded me to steer well clear.
Didn't make any difference here, though :-(

Well my 19 month old is completely endeavoured with this picture of a little girl on the wall of the dining room - which happens to be mother at the same age, but he refuses to believe it.
Yup; a classic PJ line:
“No one has ever had a fantasy about being tied to a bed and sexually ravished by someone dressed as a liberal”
from one of the collected essays in 'Give War a Chance: Eyewitness Accounts of Mankind's Struggle Against Tyranny, Injustice, and Alcohol-Free Beer'.
By coincidence, my current bedtime reading. Apparently out-of-print, though.
("Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys” also seems apposite ; )
A smile improves a picture
One of the listed MPs in the mens list is a woman, (wrong flag ticked)
William Hague is quite popular
My MP is quite high (top 150 men)
Some of those featured would be 100x better than Ed Millipede for his ex job.
And I am still trying to work out which of the women would be the most fun.*
Top 20 17 Conservatives!!!!!!!!!!!
Some of the middle ranking ones are much nicer looking than some of the higher ranking. But then long flowing hair or shoulder length normally looks nicer than short hair.
* List your thoughts on this!
