What statistical analysis do you think you can apply to a single number, I may have missed that week in lectures and I am always up for a learning experience?


Or took the wrong study altogether. Sure as hell you did not skip that week for reading classes.

Nobody mentioned analysing a single number. The phrasing was ‘perverting’

Of course you can frame a single number by adding vaguely related other figures as a background to which
the said single figure can be made to look good or bad, whatever it is you’re trying to get across.


This is tedious isn't it?

And we come down to the fear of a whole branch of mathematics because some people don't understand it.

Yomp and stats is like a medieval King and witchcraft

Stats are a tool not of and in themselves bad What Mike is doing is just a way of blanking out anything he doesn't want to here by poisoning the well then shooting the messenger.

It isn't stats that make polling figures wrong anyway, there is little or no statistical analysis to be done, it is sampling, different pollsters sample in different ways and then make fairly arbitrary weighting allowances based on nothing much at all.

That is why a polling company like Survation can get a GE pretty much spot on whilst YouGov were way out even after they realised they were not getting it right.

Because polling figures, as shown by Fiona Bruce's egregious lying on Question time, are used as news items themselves.

But none of this, fascinating as it is, changes the fact that you don't perform statistical analysis on a solitary number as Mike thinks and no amount of dissembling from you is going to change that.


Absolutely desperate.

I can only attribute your complete break down to using twitter.

Sad really. This used to be fun.

Once the Copester's habit of making stuff up was exposed, the poor lamb's credibility was in tatters and he seems to have lost his way.

Formerly a master at browbeating posters with opposing views into submission by always having the last word, he now looks increasingly like the late Nicolae Ceaușescu gesticulating wildly from the balcony at the mob who've come to string him up.

Yes, that's exactly how he looks. :roll:

And you look like one of the baying mob.

It's not a particularly pleasant look.

If you're going to ridicule and dismiss people with the frequency and at the levels CH does,
you have to be prepared to get a bit of abuse hurled back.

Odd how you have changed sides too.

It used to bother you that Copehead got away with the most outrageous lies.

But now you are complicit.

It does worry me.

How awful for poor Copehead. Not only has he been exposed as BCBs Walter Mitty, he now has DD fighting his corner!

Even I'm feeling sorry for the Welsh fucker these days. Still, I'm sure he'll be back soon, full of BCB piss and vinegar and calling people thick Daily Mail readers after he finishes visiting the wreck of the Titanic with his new best mate "Jim" Cameron this weekend.

Ha! The pair of you have obviously fallen for Corbyn's brilliant gameplan of undermining the credibility of the hated MSM and so lulling May and the rest of her running dog lickspittle cronies into a false sense of security.
