4/4 they're much better off than the wider public. More than twice as many Tory members earn six figure salaries than members of other parties, and relatively few are on low incomes

3/ They're also very right-wing on economics. Only 15% of Tory members believe the government should redistribute income from the richer to the poorer — a much lower share than for any other party

2/ Tory members also back a very hard Brexit. They're more likely to back No Deal than Conservative *voters*, and almost two thirds of them think No Deal would be good for the economy

NEW: Britain's next Prime Minister will be decided by the Conservative party membership. What does this group look like? (Big thanks to for the party members data) 1/ Tory members are much older and more male-dominated than the wider public

NEW: a data-driven look at how women are slowly getting more lead roles in big British and American TV shows I scraped data on 1,200 IMDB shows to show that: • Men still dominate, but women are up to 39% of lead roles • All-male led casts are in decline

Thanks, and yeah it was a though call to make. A better measure would be something takes into account number of lines, but that data doesn’t exist for all shows here. Also, I tried a few different cut-offs, e.g 75% of episodes, and the pattern of greater representation holds.

Hi, it’s in the chart’s footnote

That’s fair re serial female leads rather than one constant, though I think that matters, too, as a) it leaves less time for character development, and b) a female lead who gets killed off after a season or two is not a central role in the same way as a tentpole character is.

Haha I wish! Some absolute classics in there. I’d happily re-watch Green Wing several times over
