Any of us who are interested in politics take note of various opinion surveys and while we all accept that such things can not be definitive it is generally accepted that a random sample of the people surveyed will tend to give a pretty good idea of how well a new policy has been received. But our learned friend is of course very selective in the surveys that he will endorse. For instance a survey that shows a majority of those surveyed endorse same sex marriage gets a very big tick of approval from our man under the horse hair wig but when it comes to the reception of Gillard‘s Carbon tax and Swan’s budget. He is very quick to denounce the size of the sample:
Hmm, maybe someone will explain to our learned friend that the “compensation” will not long keep anyone ahead of the price rises and that the extra churn though our economy will only enrich spivs and shysters, that the downsides to our economy will far out weight any environmental benefits from The carbon Tax. More importantly maybe someone should explain to our learned friend that silvertail socialists are rightly chided for their inability to understand poverty or what it is like to live on limited means.
Perhaps if someone could truly help him to understand then he would not write nonsense such as the post I cite above.
Ah well I really don’t expect that we are going to need airborne pork detecting radar very soon.
