I don't mind you questioning cause and effect, it is interesting.It would be helpful to see the actual study, because if it's anything like the studies which show higher drug use among the more intelligent then the IQ difference will be nigh on insignificant i.e. (Interestingly the same gap between the average male and female IQ)A large percentage of this country has been left wing for a long time, way back before the 1960s/70s when homophobia and racism was pretty much the norm in both sides of the political spectrum.
If you asked those blokes who they vote for, they will probably say no one, if they do vote it will almost certainly be Labour, failing that they will say BNP.Look at this map of the 2010 elections: you can see the areas that are most deprived gravitate heavily towards Labour and the Lib Dems.Furthermore, I did bother to look at the picture location you posted, and extrapolated from the fact it is called 'EDL' that they are probably like most EDL supporters who voted Labour in in 97 and now feel let down.I also take this to mean that the left wingers/liberals on here are now happy with IQ as a form of measurement?I was pretty sure they didn't like it, because once you accept that it is a valid measurement you open a can of worms...We were talking about it in gibberings but it was a contentious issue.
Something to do with higher intelligence leading to novelty seeking behaviour.
Maybe some of their family had tribal affiliations a couple of decades back, but that's about it. If you're serious then that speaks volumes about you. The Tories have always had a solid base in deprived areas - think of a deprived area that doesn't have a Conservative club in it and I know I struggle.
I agree that they're more likely to be non-voters than anything, but Labour voters?
I'd be very surprised if they voted Tory, and weren't in with the we-automatically-hate-thatcher brigade... I can't find they do vote it will almost certainly be Labour, failing that they will say BNP.

Pat yourselves on the back by the way if you're not a frothing mouth racist because, shock horror, you're not a simpleton like they are. Now let's not resort to picking on the lazy sterotype of the swivel-eyed, dim-witted reactionary bigot shall we?
