Dunnell and Scholar - Heroes for Our Times
In an age of crumbling values and virtues, ladies and gentlement I give you ...
Sir Martin Scholar, and Karen Dunnell ! True heroes for our times.
Can these two worthies start a return to integrity in government ? It has to start somewhere, and perhaps this is it - a revival of integrity in statistical reporting. They know the score, and they don't look the compromising type to me. (What does Sir Martin whisper to his NuLab-insider son Tom ?) Enough of the Government's pernicious mis-use of statistics - and their lies and their damned lies while we're at it !
Coupled with Gordon Brown's latest world-saving exploits being knocked down into 4th, 5th, even 6th billing in the evening news broadcasts - displaced by the tale, inter alia, of these chaps and their principled war on his cynical, arch-NuLab abuse of statistics - and off the Saturday front pages altogether, this is a great spin-free start to the weekend.
