Vox Political‘s article on Labour’s poll setback this weekend has proven controversial, with readers questioning the validity of surveys that question only around 1,000 people, and asking how they were ‘weighted’ in terms of the political and social background of the people answering the questions.
Polling companies generally respond that around 1,000 people gives a reasonable microcosm of feeling across the UK, and that the polls are carried out across a balanced cross-section of society.
Meanwhile, we still have a Conservative-led ideological dictatorship that believes it is intelligent to spend £8 billion – and drive innocent people to despair and possibly self-harm – trying to eliminate error and fraud worth less than half that amount.
Clearly somebody – either Labour or the electorate – needs to wake up and get a grip.
