The Ugliness of the English

I have just learned that I'm not the only one to think that the English are on average physically the ugliest people in the advanced industrial world, but now there is a site devoted to this topic. A quick scan of that site suggests, however, a class explanation of the ugliness of the English. I doubt that this is either true or fair. Ugliness, I suspect, is spread equitably across the socio-economic strata of the country. A well-designed social scientific study ought to be able to confirm this.
