The new Tory candidates

I have just half-watched a Newsnight report on the background of recently selected Conservative candidates. I did not write the figures down, so I shall have to make them up.

Of the new candidates:
  • 59 per cent are men;
  • 65 per cent went to Eton;
  • 83 per cent are called "Rees-Mogg"

I expect you can find the true figures somewhere on the Newsnight site, but you take my point.
