     "…we found that more attractive individuals are more likely to report higher levels of political efficacy, identify as conservative… more likely to embrace individualism and reject the types of social assistance and welfare aid more commonly promoted by leftwing policy…"

    Confirmation…we are a bunch of uglies in the SPGB

    This post is simply irresponsible. It will do nothing but allow the unscrupulous and those without a conscience to begin naming names just to make a cheap score off old enemies like…lemme see…Peter Faultless, one time member of Birmingham branch. Had a face that could scatter a leper colony.

    Is that intelligent? Let your family suffer while rejecting welfare aid? Intelligent but without basic animal insticts to protect your young. Perhaps it is the way they have operationalised  'intelligence'. Or maybe just poor researchers. Either way my own experience indicates right wingers are thick as shit. And heartless.

    A few more off-guard comments like this and we'll be able to work out who you are and why you went funny.

     THEMIGHTYCOWARD has also revealed himself by off-guard comments on the thred linked below.  He probably attends the same clinic as Bob. Perhaps we could invite both of them up to the upcoming Newcastle Educational Weekend and perhaps go to the pub afterwards. Would be interesting to see what his 'classes' have done for him. http://www.worldsocialism.org/spgb/forum/general-discussion/myth-overcrowded-britain?page=7#comment-45530

    Seems it being right-wing is also about your nosehttps://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/feb/28/hate-body-odour-youre-more-likely-to-have-rightwing-viewsPeople who have a greater tendency to turn their nose up at the whiff of urine, sweat and other body odours are more likely to have rightwing authoritarian attitudes, research suggests. Social discrimination against others  is rooted in a primitive urge to avoid catching diseases from unfamiliar people or environments.“We think that authoritarian attitudes might, at least in part, be rooted in biology,” said Dr Jonas Olofsson, co-author of the research from Stockholm University and the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study.Anecdotally, i have to confess i have heard a number of racists ascribe their dislike to foreigners to the smell of curry and garlic

    A new study reveals you might be able to tell just how rich someone is by looking at their face.Researchers at the University of Toronto revealed their findings in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.“It indicates that something as subtle as the signals in your face about your social class can actually then perpetuate it,” says Thora Bjornsdottir of the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto. “Those first impressions can become a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy. It’s going to influence your interactions, and the opportunities you have.”Researchers say 68 percent of the time subjects correctly guessed the class of the participants in the photographs, exceeding random chance.“What we’re seeing is students who are just 18-22 years old have already accumulated enough life experience that it has visibly changed and shaped their face to the point you can tell what their socio-economic standing or social class,” says co-author, Nicholas Rule.“There are neurons in the brain that specialize in facial recognition. The face is the first thing you notice when you look at somebody,” says  Rule. “We see faces in clouds, we see faces in toast. We are sort of hardwired to look for face-like stimuli. And this is something people pick up very quickly. And they are consistent, which is what makes it statistically significant.”

    So by this logic we should be expecting membership applications from Michael Gove and Jacob Rees Mogg any time now.
