Look at Russel Norman…body like a half-sucked throatie…wimp, even had his flag taken off him by some Chinese…socialist. Look at most hipsters and green supporters..wimps…weeds. Not a real bloke among them.

Now we know why. Tough blokes are more right wing.

MEN with strong upper body strength are more likely to vote conservatively while physically weaker males have a greater tendency towards left-leaning views.

And stronger men are more likely to protect their resources while weaker males favour more socialist views such as wealth distribution, researchers claim.

Psychological scientists Michael Bang Petersen of Denmark’s Aarhus University, and Daniel Sznycer of the University of California, say political motivations may have evolutionary links to physical strength.

The scientists say men’s upper body strength predicts and influences their political opinions and this link reflects psychological traits that evolved in response to our early ancestral environments and continue to influence behaviour today.

“While many think of politics as a modern phenomenon, it has – in a sense – always been with our species,” they say. 

Half men are socialist sooks.

In early days, distribution of resources was achieved through a show of strength as opposed to judicial processes.

With this theory in mind, the scientists set about to prove that upper body strength – seen as a symbol of protecting resources – would predict men’s opinions about wealth distribution.

Measuring bicep size and socio-economic status, researchers collected data from hundreds of men from the US, Denmark and Argentina which all have different welfare systems.

They found that irrespective of where the men came from, those with strong upper body strength were less likely to support a welfare system.

“Our results demonstrate that physically weak males are more reluctant than physically strong males to assert their self-interest – just as if disputes over national policies were a matter of direct physical confrontation among small numbers of individuals, rather than abstract electoral dynamics among millions,” they say.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
