    Interesting fact: 'statistically MPs are more likely to have a criminal conviction than the average member of the public.'

    Another interesting fact: 'Delinquents and criminals average IQ scores 8 to 10 points lower than noncriminals, which is about one-half a standard deviation. IQ and criminal behavior are negatively correlated at about r = -.20 (Hirschi and Hindelang; Wilson and Herrnstein)'.

    Are the two facts in any way related?
