Wednesday 29th March

Little to report on today, with even the statutory attack on Polly Tonybee lacking any bite. Where are the legendary attacks on her statistical claims with worse statistical claims? Have we achieved our aim to get a greater standard of statistical accuracy at the cost of no statistics at all? Is the Law of Unintended Consquences going to be our undoing?

Answers on a postcard please.

It's Toynbee, not Tonybee, although the slip might be Freudian. The fact that Polly sees the World through the prism of statistics, says all we need to know about her. The insane desire of New Labour to measure everything has led to many unintended consequences.
