Quote of the day 30th December 2017

"When a poll comes out that appears to show public support for Brexit it is excitely retweeted and shared by lots of pro-Brexit voices.

When a poll comes out that appears to show public opposition to Brexit it is excited retweeted and shared by lots of anti-Brexit voices.

Both of these create a deeply misleading picture."

(Anthony Wells of UK Polling Report points out to both sides the disadvantages of putting far too much credence in an opinion poll which tells you what to hear in an excellent article,

On measuring public support for Brexit")
