People who cheat on their partners are also more likely to vote for the Conservative party, a poll has found.

According to a survey of 2,000 confessed cheaters, 65 per cent would vote for the Tories while only 17 per cent would choose Labour.

Only 9 per cent of cheaters would vote for the Liberal Democrats, while 5 per cent of adulterers said they would support the Green Party.

“It stands to reason that wealthier people are more likely to cheat. Success creates confidence and therefore a bigger likelihood to cheat."

Of course, it could all just be one big coincidence as the data seems to reflect the relative popularity of all the parties, with more people voting for the Tories in general (well, before Liz Truss made them completely flop in the polls), and very few people comparatively voting for the Greens, but that's just our two cents.

Even so, this is pretty scandalous.
