Hat tip to a couple of eagle-eyed boaters who spotted Harriet Harman's blink rate in her interview with BBC News 24 - VIDEO HERE.
The normal blink rate for a human is about 20 times a minute. I counted Harriet at 126.
Opinion on the meaning of rapid blinking is divided. Some say it signals stress, anxiety or untruthfulness. Others that it signals arrogance; it blocks vision, and says 'I'm so important I don't need to see you'.
Bill Clinton reached 117 during the 1996 televised debate when he was asked about drug use.
