Sights: Survey Shows Sexiest MP is MOTT
According to the Daily Mirror the Labour Party is the Party of the “beautiful people”:
She is one of a dozen Labour lookers in the poll, proving the party’s MPs are red hot compared to the Tories, who are feeling blue with just nine entries in the coveted table. The Lib Dems have proved a turn-off with voters, with just three making the chart.
She is an official “Member Of The Tribe”: rising from the world of Jewish student politics. While studying at the University of Birmingham (Birkbeck), she was a National Executive Committee member of the National Union of Student, and co-chaired the NUS Anti-Racism/Anti-Fascism Campaign, but then resigned from the Executive Committee in April 2005 because of “continued apathy within the NUS to Jewish student suffering”. She was also director of Labour Friends of Israel and is a committee member of the London Jewish Forum.
According to the Jewish Chronicle Online:
She was described by the American website Jewlicious as a “hottie”, when her name was linked to Euan Blair, the son of the former Prime Minister.
