Pie chart problems

The Lib/Dems used to be notorious for putting misleading charts into their literature. Hat tip to Sands Media Services for pointing out here the pie chart below in the new Lib/Dem leader's local newspaper, the Westmorland Gazette.

It did make me wonder if the paper were using a former Tim Farron staffer to do their number-crunching for them. You'll never see six to one look so much like 50:50 as here ...

Or did someone just type the wrong data into a spreadsheet? Oops!
