Candour makes news these days because we are drowning in a blancmange of PC-mumbo jumbo. Molony made two simple observations. First, there are “beauty-disadvantaged women” in the world. Surely we need not quibble over that. Some women are beautiful. Some fall short in the beauty stakes.
Secondly, he pointed out that less attractive women who are looking for a partner may do better in a town with fewer women and more men. He’s right. Molony simply used blunt words to tell us what science has already proven.
It's unfortunate that the Mayor of Mt Isa has been reviled for stating the bleeding obvious.
