Run polls until one of them makes your guy look and only release that one.
Sure, somewhat. But that there's even one poll that shows this result is genuinely newsworthy.
And the bottom line is his support is down.

Re: Theresa May survives no confidence motion

The UK will always side with the US against any attempt to make Europe more independent. And that's why it is imperative that the UK leaves the EU. No Sertorio, the author has it wrong. The "Europe" that Britain joined back in 1973 was called the European Common Market and was only a trade block. A...

Re: The Anglo Empires

And if everyone who had an empire is about to collapse, that's pretty much everyone, including your country. My country is definitely not excluded. But what is now relevant is what is happening to the UK and the US. And they are paying the price of cruelty, greed and wanton violence throughout the ...

Re: The Anglo Empires

Strange thing Sertorio: I was in the USA just a matter of months ago and it did not give me the impression of a decaying (or decadent) society on its last legs. I have not been in Britain since back in 2001; but contrasting what I saw then with what I saw during my preceding 1975 visit (gap of a qu...

Re: Theresa May survives no confidence motion

Let's not forget that the UK had to pay the EU billions each year, more than the EU paid it. Some £250 million a week. https://fullfact.org/europe/our-eu-membership-fee-55-million/ And whereas trade is revenue, the payments to the EU were cash. A net profit on trade of £250 million a week is a lot o...

Re: "Show me the man

Oh let's have an example. a) Death penalty which penalizes blacks more than whites; b) Emprisonment without revealing the charges and without allowing for an independent defense; c) Unlimited emprisonment without a trial... No, examples. Are you trying to tell us that those three situations have ne...

Re: "Show me the man

Yep, I am aware of that Milo. The fact that the court, no doubt at the request of them PRC government, upgraded the sentence to execution is the PRC government's way of signalling its displeasure at the detention of one of its own. Tough diplomacy. Might I point out that this seems to be in line wi...

Re: Thorium Nuclear Power

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMuxjHLLk0E Good summary; some quibbles: 1 Yes it produces bomb grade material but indirectly. It's much less work to produce that material in other, conventional ways, so it is very unlikely to contribute to proliferation. 2 That the salt solution is extremely corro...

Re: "Show me the man

First off, the facts of the drug smuggling charge are disputed; let's not take what the Chinese courts say at face value without some corroboration. As to the law, he was already sentenced to a long jail term, on appeal from his original sentence the Chinese government upped it to death. Yep, I am ...
