  1. Let’s see –

    there’s Margaret Thatcher – no!
    Edwina Currie? – nope!
    Gillian Shepherd? – neigh!

    Its tough thinking of right wing women who aren’t over the hill….

  2. As opposed to right wing, you’re probably better off with Libertarians. Photos of the Samizdata mob having a bunfight always seem to include a healthy crop of very attractive women. P. J. O’Rourke always used to say you could tell which political movement was currently in vogue by seeing where the hot babes were.
