But the point is that it's not "MY" shallow opinion. I'm not judging anyone's abilities based on how they look, I'm looking at the evidence and the evidence is suggesting now that you won't become PM of this country unless you look a certain way and perform well on TV. I think it's sad that a bald man would probably never win an election today, but the fact we haven't had a bald PM for many decades (and the party leaders are getting younger) tells its own story.
Similarly, if Jenkins was ugly (or even plain), would she be famous? Seriously?
the ability to perform well on tv is actually a fair point. i make a lot of my judgements on politicians based on how they perform in debate on "question time" for example. those opinions are formed purely on their ability though and not on their looks in any way.
two words, susan boyle. now i am not suggesting she is uneasy on the eye, but she is the complete opposite to katherine image wise and she is also a crossover singer.
