She used to be mocked as 'Broom-head', but Security Secretary Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee is now a Hong Kong sex symbol, a new survey suggests. Mrs Ip, along with Chief Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen, were named as the most ideal lovers in the political sphere in a Microsoft online survey. The MSN.com.hk survey of 1,500 voters was released on Tuesday ahead of Valentine's Day tomorrow. Those polled were also asked to name famous people who would make ideal lovers. Septuagenarian tycoon Li Ka-shing topped the business category as the most desirable lover. A spokeswoman for Mr Tsang's office said the survey results were 'duly noted' and 'quite amusing', but refused to comment further. Mrs Ip's office also declined to comment. Image consultant Carline Ki Fung-sheung said power and wealth, combined with the right personality, made some people simply irresistible even if not generally regarded as beautiful. 'Power or wealth doesn't automatically add up to sex appeal,' said Ms Ki, who heads Carline Ki and Associates, an advertising and public relations firm. 'But if they are combined with a certain personality like strength, confidence or flair, then they can be irresistible.' Mr Tsang received 554 votes, double the number garnered by Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung, who came in second. In the female category, Mrs Ip had 409 votes, followed by barrister and legislator Audrey Eu Yuet-mee (364), and journalist-turned-politician Emily Lau Wai-hing (286). Retired chief secretary Anson Chan Fang On-sang received just 34 votes. The survey provided voters with a list of famous names in politics, business, sports, TV, movies and pop music.
