A grave blow to Australian national pride has been revealed on the blog Hottest Heads of State. Our man Kevin Rudd has been ranked number 93 on the list of sexiest world leaders, one place lower than the Prime Minister of the Bahamas Hubert Ingraham and just ahead of Romania’s Emil Boc.
Topping the list is Yulia Tymoshenko Prime Minister of Ukraine with Jens Stoltenberg, Prime Minister of Norway, in second place and Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the King of Bhutan, in third.
And before all you pedants out there complain that Kevvie is not really our head of state at all I should point out that the judges of this beauty contest just do not care about such distinctions. Alas Governor General Quentin Bryce has been ruled ineligible just when she would have had a real role in boosting national pride.
