Research using British Social Attitudes Survey data taken from 1985-2012, found greater appetite among young people for right-wing policy-making on issues including wealth redistribution, welfare and crime.

The study, by academics at the University of Sheffield and the University of Southampton, discovered a shift further to the right with each of the last three successive generations.

It’s “dedicated to uniting all singles passionate about creating a better world”.

The leaflet shows a picture of a blonde woman and a handsome man who can only be described as a silver fox.

You finally find someone you can imagine settling down with and, miraculously, they like you too. Then you discover their widely differing views on taxation.

Suddenly all the attraction is gone and it’s back to lonely nights-in, reading the Communist Manifesto.

After all, this friend of mine pays a woman in Earls Court to put him on a rack and do things you don’t want to read about. ’ I can just hear the chorus of left-wing women complaining that, here we go again — judging women in politics by their looks! By that criteria, I should be swooning over Jemima instead of drooling over Mrs May.

So no, this is not about looks; it’s about the sexiness of a certain mindset and sensibility.

Nor do I think that Donald Trump’s ascension to the US Presidency is an example of fascism in orange-tinged form. Indeed, the majority of students I meet aren’t "radical", and are at least receptive – or would be, if exposed to reason and debate – to changing their minds.

This is why I was shocked to find a poster, put up for all to see, but aimed at staff and Ph D students, advertising an "informal discussion" organised by the Sussex Centre for Conflict and Security Research.

The discussion would be centred around, "dealing with right-wing attitudes and politics in the classroom".

he first thing to note is the stunning willingness (or perhaps total indifference) of those behind the poster to reveal – in a public space – a clear bias against anyone with right-wing opinions.

But then I belong to that small, deviant group of liberal-lefty-pro-feminist men who find conservative/right-wing women super sexy.
