Improbable?

Really odd piece of research this one:

Researchers have found that 66 per cent of British people with three sons and no daughters vote Labour or Liberal Democrat, but that figure increases to 78 per cent among parents with three daughters and no sons. This shows that parents who have predominantly daughters are more likely to be left-wing, while those who have predominantly sons lean to the right.

The thing I find hardest to work out is what might have prompted the original investigation.

Well, it should be easy enough to find out; it was our very own Andrew Oswald doing the research! Why not drop him a note and ask?
