Hogwash? From the Grauniad?
What a load of unreconstructed manure this article is. It talks about a "new study" (always a bad beginning!) "showing" that families with more daughters are less likely to vote Tory. Now, I haven't actually, of course, seen enough of the hard data to refute its findings - although I suspect it's because it takes a sample from just one election rather than looking at general trends - but I can attack its basic explanation, which is, of course, that fathers tap into their daughters' desire for greater public spending. What?!! That'll be why traditionally more women than men have voted Conservative, I suppose. Hogwash.
