Gordon Brown outperformed by the Prime Minister of Burkina Faso

At least according to "A scientific and unbiased ranking of world leaders in order of hotness", our own dear PM ranks 84th, bettering Manmohan Singh of India but is pipped by Tertius Zongo of Burkina Faso. Or Upper Volta as she used to be known.

Moreover there is more good news, with long time favourite of this blog, Kim Jong Il rated the world's least hot ruler, behind Pope Benedict XVI.  Yulia Tymoshenko of Ukraine is the current leader

Aren't there around 190 sovereign states? Is it really true that Gordon Brown sits well inside the top half of this list? Good God, what do all the other munters look like? Are Frankenstein, John Merrick and Sylvester Stallone's mother all leaders of some country or other? How else could such a thing be explained?

It is well worth scrolling up from the bottom - if you have a strong stomach. There are some folk who have fallen out of the ugly tree hitting every branch on the way down, prior to having a few limbs fall on them. Admittedly much is
down to the selection of photographs, and that of Frau Merkel - the least attractive woman, apparently - is particularly unflattering.

I think, to paraphrase Bill Hicks, that after the top 9 there's a real big f&*%ing drop-off.

Hard to argue with their top female choices, certainly - but let's face it, very few of the gents or ladies are much to write home about.

Of course, quite a few of these leaders are not, strictly speaking, heads of state. Apart from anything else, it might have kept Kim Jong-Il off the bottom spot if the actual North Korean head of state, his 15-year-dead father, had been eligible...

Isn't Elizabeth II head of state and world leader in the UK? And why is Berlusconi there? Where is Napolitano,President and King of Italy? Nothing against PMs outranking Presidents, after all, Putin is Prime Minister of Russia; Medvedev is President. But if this is a hotness ranking of world leaders and the UK is to be included, then there are Mandelson and Cameron, apart from Her Maj., who come in the power stakes before Brown as well.

How good is Tertius Zongo? Is the lad in form?

wow, what a find !

Ali Abdullah Saleh President of Yemen - seems to be taking things in the right spirit

Jean-Paul Proust Minister of State of Monaco - fairly sure he won the snooker world championship in the '80s ?

Bhumibol Adulyadej King of Thailand - what a hat !

Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia - crazy name, crazy guy !
