Get amongst it ladies!

I have a theory. Well actually I have many theories, but this one I reckon is true. Politics is power - power is sexy = politics is sexy. But let's face it, there aren't really that many politicians that are sexy. I can't imagine any lady throwing her knickers at Gordon Brown and I think Peter Costello may actually scream, cry, wet himself and cower in a corner if that happened to him. So where am I basing this theory on, well let me explain.
Recently, in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, elections were marked by severe irregularities, but with no stunners showing off for the cameras or speaking to the international community in the universal language of babealiciousness, the media attention of the protests in those two countries was scant, at best.

However, below is Yulia Tymoshenko. Remember the Orange Revolution in in the Ukraine recently? Basically from late November 2004 to January 2005, in the immediate aftermath of the run-off vote of the 2004 Ukrainian presidential election that was compromised by massive corruption, voter intimidation and direct electoral fraud, there were a series of protests to stage the election again - pretty much the same as Kyrgyzstan. But one difference, Yulia was the main spokesperson at the protests. She is now the Prime Minister of the Ukraine....and Luke Skywalker’s sister as you can see.

Looks good with a pearl necklace

So here's my contention: public opinion and trends will go wherever there are stunners. Let’s face it, men will follow a woman over a cliff if need be and let's just look at these examples; 15 years ago the hot woman were in yoga classes – look how that boomed – 10 years ago it was sushi restaurants and coffee shops, five years ago it was Wall Street and now it's politics. In 2006 17% of politicians around the world were female, the highest number ever, and a rise of 9% in a decade (UK Conservative party has less than 12%).And about time I say, cause I'm sick of this:

Not sexy – yes Mr Groves – NOT sexy

Not sexy. Yes Mr Groves, not

Oh god, no wonder the Kiwis shag sheep when this is your PM

So come on ladies, get to your political party's local branch and sign up, you want to be a trend setter don't you?
