Slapheads : More Evidence of Political Losers

Paul Linford has provided evidence to back up Guido’s Slaphead Rule, (as if Guido ever requires evidence). His table (below) shows, the only time any slapheads have won general elections since the advent of television has been against other slapheads. Furthermore, every election since Feb 1974 has been won by the candidate with the fullest head of hair.

Guido rests his case.
