YouGov poll on immigration coming

Don’t know if I’ve mentioned it but I occasionally do these YouGov thingies and apparently they’ve revamped the homepage now and reset ratings and opinions back to zero, but left our redeemable points alone.  Ho hum: Anyway, that’s not what this post is about.  The latest poll, which no doubt will be released to the MSM by and by, was about two things – God and immigration. The first one, on…

It always was bollox [H/T Wiggia]: Civil servants at the Treasury have now dismissed the 3 million jobs claim by arguing the methodology was 10 years old and imprecise, rendering its conclusions entirely inaccurate. In fact, the myth is based entirely on a 1999 report by the National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR) that 3.2 million jobs were “associated” with exports to goods and services to the EU.…

You don’t need to go past the Wiki entry for the Irish referendum to see corruption, even in the entry itself, what it says and why it has not been corrected.

After all, all property is theft and as good socialists, this is how they are redistributing.…
