LONDON - Politicians can be left or right, red or blue — hot or not.
A new website lets Britons rank their lawmakers' sex appeal.
The site, www.sexymp.co.uk, asks visitors to choose between two pictured legislators, with the votes compiled into a fast-changing overall ranking.
On Wednesday Conservative legislator Penny Mordaunt led the female politicians, while fellow Tory Jake Berry was ranked the sexiest man.
The site's creator, reality TV star Francis Boulle, defended it as a "fun and memorable" way for people to get to know their politicians.
Most lawmakers seemed to take it in good humour.
Jim Shannon, briefly ranked least sexy among 648 lawmakers, told the BBC he hadn't been elected for his looks, but because voters "know I am a worker and will get the job done."
