Survival of the fittest

Inevitably trivialized as 'Cameron's Cuties', this group pic of the new generation of Tory women candidates is actually rather heartening. Phoaargh! factor aside, evolutionary biology suggests that one should choose one's leaders from among the good-looking, because attractiveness is a more certain indication of a good genes that practically any other.

The contrast with female Labour intake of 13 years ago is pretty stark. They all turned out to be total failures in office, but then so did their likewise plain male colleagues.

So perhaps a guide to voting in this policy-lite election would be to vote for the good-looking, because at least they won't be bitter and twisted by envy of those more blessed by natural selection.
