Fake Statistics? New UK Poll Suggests 65% Think COVID Restrictions Too Lenient

Almost two-thirds of people believe the Government’s latest Covid-19 restrictions do not go far enough. According to a new poll carried out by ORB International for a daily newspaper surveyed over 2,000 British adults of voting age and claims to have found that almost 65 per cent believ the latest neo – fascisdt measures announced last week by the government do not go far enough in advancing the cause of globalist authoritarianism and stronger constraints on freedom should have been taken.

Around 51 per cent of respondents favoured closing gyms and beauty salons now to lower the rate of coronavirus infections, which now, due to the 10:00pm curfew imposed on pubs and restaurants, requires us to believe that Coronavirus is more likely to strike us down if we want to have a drink at 10:30 pm. .

The fact that government sources claim the findings coincide with internal polling that has led ministers to believe that the priority for many members of the public is to see the pandemic brought under control suggests the poll is completely fake as the buzz in pubs and clubs, around the workplace and in internet comment threads suggests there is almost zero support for the new regulations and very few people believe the virus is a serious threat to healthy people under seventy – five.

Further scepticism about the latest round of scaremongerring advised by the lientists of the government’s SAGE panel is shown in concerns raised by many Conservative MPs about the extent of restrictions and what this ludicrous exercise in authoritarianism os doing to British society.

One senior Tory claimed that the public had been forced to accept “authoritarian” measures having been made “fearful” by exagerated government warnings about the threat posed by Covid-19.

Funny that, terrorise the population with hypothetical nonsense (50000 cases) based on highly suspect mass PCR tests, then they beg for more measures. Hermann Goring, architect of the Nazi’s notorious Gestapo and one of the most important officers in Hitler’s regime, when describing at Nuremberg how the Nazis got Germany to vote them into power, said a population can be made to do anything if you scare them enough.

Certainly the pandemic, driven by the United Nations and its World Health Oraganisation (WHO) offshoothas worked hard in collaboration with governments around the world to keep people scared throughout this fake pandemic but now Boris Johnson faces a rebellion over the Government’s approach to the pandemic, with MPs expressing concern that ministers are introducing curbs to basic freedoms without Parliament having a sufficient say. Public support for the authoritarian measures, which in truth was never much more that 50%, is collapsing to be replaced by dissatisfaction and further pulic alienation from the political process. Labour cannot escape its share of blame, the official opposition party, instead of opposing this attack on democracy and civil rights, has broadly supported government actions, only deviating from the official line to call for stronger restrictions and harsher penalties.

The ORB International survey was carried out after Boris Johnson announced a raft of new measures including a 10pm curfew on pubs and restaurants, a 15-person cap on weddings and a return to working at home for office workers, which are likely to remain in place until March, a year on from the start of lockdown.

As I was reading reports on the poll I could not help thinking: “This is a joke right? Some kind of satire.”
All the evidence shows that lockdown failed, that mandatory mask wearing has at best a marginal effect in slowing transmission of viruses (& more likely increases it,) and that vaccines when they are eventually available will only provide temporary immunity.

Evidence also shows that most people who come into contact with the virus will experience no ill effects and that 97.5(ish)% of people who do develop symptoms will recover fully.

I suggest to the editor of The Daily Telegraph he stops wating money on the bunch of con artists who carried out this fake poll and sends his journalists (if the paper still employs any,) out into the real world to ask real people how they feel about being strippeed of their domocratic rights and civil liberties.

People to this day ask, how did evil authoritarians like the Nazis get elected in Germany almost 90 years ago, how did normal Germans allow the mass extermination of Jews, gypsies etc. The answer is ‘fear’,,, give the masses, bread and circuses while peddling lurid scare stories of what might happen to them if they fail to support the government in its efforts to keep them safe from harm, or the most frightening bogeyman of all, the dreadful possibility that if they do not grant government the authority to command them from the cradle to the grave they will have to take responsibility for themselves.

Why are a dwindling but still significat number of people still terrified of a virus that if you are under 50 with no underlying medical conditions you have a 99.99% of survival from even if you are one of the very small number of people that develops symptoms. Even with underlying conditions the survival rate is over 99%. So, what about saving me, Granddad, or save Grannie? Well over 80, no underlying conditions, Female 98% survival, male 96%. Only with underlying conditions does it dip, but even then female 92% male 79%. (statistics: Stockholm University) So, why are the majority of the public wanting more misery to be meted out from this awful government and the lying lientists who advise them? it makes no sense to me.

Polls are not remotely accurate – either in terms of sampling or barometers of public opinion, and pedalling this absolute rubbish, as The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian , The Independent and BBC News are, should be made a criminal offence as it’s wholly irresponsible.

2000 people are not a representative sample, the polling organisation, which on its website does not describe itself as a market research firm but as a “Thought leadership” agency (in itself a confession of malfeasance,) does not randomply sample people but invites them to take part. Thus the sample is self selected and therefore cannot be representative due to a myriad of variables , none of which pollsters mention when they’re spewing out these stats, therefore the results are by and large meaningless.

Journalists who cite this drivel aren’t journo’s at all – they are the wordsmith equivalent of the paparazzi, they do not report facts but look for sensation and amplify it..

One result of this ‘poll’ is significant however, the intensity of scaremongering by Government and mass media now, and the misleading focus on ‘case numbers’ (i.e., those testing positive on the PCR test, which by its creator’s own admission is not fit for purpose and returns 50% false positives) shows that the people behind this global scam are geting despoerate as they see yet another of their schemes to push global government on us about to fail.

Italy most likely member to quit the EU and demand independence after Brexit -shock poll

23:01 (11 pm) 31 January, the United Kingdom is no longer part of the European Union.

Throughout the day, the last on which the UK will be a member of the European Union, more than 7,000 people took part in an online, and completely meaningless except as a gesture, poll which asked which nation they thought would be next to leave the 27 member bloc.

As Boris Johnson prepared to address the nation at 10pm while Nigel Farage led a Brexit bash in Parlianment Square, outside the Houses of Parliament to help Britons celebrate new era in which our national traits of creativity, enterprise and determination will no longer be constrained by the activities of self – important French bureaucrats, militaristic Germans obsessed with rules and regulations and fat, drunken Belgian CHIMPS (Completely Hopeless In Most Practical Situations,) whose only talent is for being obstructive.

The result of the poll (which as I said is just for fun,) was that the Italians are most likely to next want out of the “corrupt club” of the EU, with Poland another high contender to demand an exit. Aa we have reported recently, rising political movements in Spain, Finland, Denmark and Netherlands are also gaining support for their campaigns to quite the wannabe EUSSR.

Of the 7,076 people who took part, 1,939 (28 percent) said Italy, 1,179 (17 percent) said Poland and 854 (13 percent) said the Netherlands.

The fourth-most likely country to vote Leave in an EU referendum is Hungary (691 votes) ahead of Denmark (670 votes), according to the poll.

Seven percent (538) of respondents said France would be the one to watch in the near future.

Today the EU says goodbye to Britain, tomorrow the world will say goobye to the corrupt, undemocratic, illiberal European Union.

France’s President Macron drops to RECORD LOW in polls for ‘acting like KING of France’

President Emmanuel Macron of France reports back to work this week, politically weakened after his clumsy handling of a scandal involving his top bodyguard and his imperious attitude to public opinion, pushed his approval ratings to a record low in August.

Polling company Ifop’s deputy chief Frédéric Dabi said public perception of the French President has become negative, with voters angered by his cuts to welfare and employment reforms.

Mr Macron was described as acting like a “monarch” with no connection with his voters, by Mr Dabi who also told France’s Europe 1 radio: “He is entering the new political year undeniably weakened.

“The benevolent mood towards Mr Macron has soured, and most people are now disappointed [with his performance] … There’s a growing feeling among voters that his policies are unfair.”

The number of people who view the 40-year-old president favourably has slumped by five percentage points through August to a record low of 34 per cent, an Ifop poll for Le Journal du Dimanche published on Sunday showed, The Guardian reports.

The poll also showed his “dissatisfaction rating” has risen to 66 per cent from 61 per cent in July.

The aftershocks of the so-called “Benalla affair” are still being felt, and the scandal has damaged Mr Macron’s reputation.

Last month a video of Mr Macron’s former bodyguard, Alexandre Benalla and gay love (allegedly), beating up two protesters while off duty and dressed as in police riot gear sparked furious opposition claims of a cover-up after it was found that Elysée officials had known about the incident since early May.

But it was Macron’s aloof response to the incident that had the biggest impact on his presidency, denting his popularity and throwing parts of his agenda off schedule. A second poll published on Sunday echoed the downward trend reported by Ifop.

The survey, conducted by Viavoice for the left-wing daily Libération, showed only 36 per cent of French people having a “favourable” opinion of Mr Macron.

Why The Developed World Is Rejecting Traditional Politics

Firstly it’s great to see the Kippers support has held up in the weeks since the General Election. The first opinion poll published (YouGov – Sun) shows that while Labour and the Liberal Democras have fallen back slightly, the Conservatives have gained and UKIP are on 13%, the same as they polled in the election.

At thins stage, five years from the next election and probably two years away from the EU in – out referendum this means nothing, but at least it will piss off those antidemocratic, anti-free speech, pro – authoritarianism lefties who predicted UKIP support would evaporate.

And news coming in from abroad suggests the opposition to golobalism, comllectivism and post – racial multiculturalism (to borrow a phrase from Labour’s spin and misinformation department) has the politically correct, Frankfurt school consensus on the backfoot elsewhere.

Le Pen tops polls asFrench Unemployment Surges To New Record High.

Is it any wonder Marin Le Pen’s Front National Party is a) leading in the polls, and b) pushing for an EU in/out referendum? Whatever it is that France (and/or Europe) is doing, is not working. Despite all the promises, French unemployment has risen practically non-stop for 4 years and just hit a new all-time record.

The UKIP Surge Is Under Way – Boggart Blog’s Work Is Done For Now

Two weeks to the election and despite all the screeching from sub – idiotic lefties in mainstream media about UKIP’s support collapsing (on the strength of one outlier poll that showed UKIP down 2 points (the same poll showed a Conservative lead of 6 points but the lefties were strangely silent about that) the people’s army does seem to be on the march. In other pols however …

An old poll but it illustrates the point – Image Source

An article from Sky News owned Breitbart London online news site goes a long way towards explaining why:

from an article by Martin Daubney

Just last week, on the day of the Labour manifesto launch, I probed Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls live on Sky News, telling him the tale of my father, a lifelong Nottingham coal miner and, until recently, Labour voter who, along with the rest of my family and all their friends, have switched to UKIP, as many in the working classes feel abandoned by an aloof Labour party that is increasingly out of touch with the commoner.

I said to Balls: “Why do so many of the working classes feel abandoned by your party? I’m a working class lad who’s done well, and now I’ve done well you want to hammer me with more tax. Lots of people like me are being lost. Where my parents live, lots of people are switching over to UKIP. We see the Labour party as not representing the working man any more. What are you going to do for the working classes?”

What I got was a parrot-like rendition about the mansion tax and zero-hours contracts before adding UKIP’s decision to leave the EU is “stupid for working people”. Read more …

Then there was a big media hoo-ha on the basis of a single poll about how the race was very close in Thanet South, the seat being contested by Nigel Farage with Conservatives one point ahead of UKIP, two ahead of Labour.

Unfortunately that was from a poll conducted by Com Res was commissioned by a Conservative Party donor. The latest poll from Survation and commissioned by a UKIP donor showed a very different pictures:

from Anthony Wells, UK Polling Report:

As well as today’s GB voting intention polls Survation have released a new poll of Thanet South commissioned by the UKIP donor Alan Bown. The poll shows Nigel Farage with a nine point lead over the Conservatives in second place, full topline figures are CON 30%, LAB 26%, LDEM 2%, UKIP 39%, GRN 2% (tabs).

The poll is broadly in line with Survation’s previous poll in Thanet South, which was conducted back in February and showed Farage with an eleven point lead. However, it contrasts with the ComRes poll of the same constituency earlier this month which showed the Conservatives, UKIP and Labour all neck-and-neck.

I wrote about the differences between the ComRes and Survation polling in Thanet South earlier this month here. In short there are some obvious contrasts between the two companies approaches … Read all …

Does this mean polling companies give the result their customers want?

Not at all, they’d have no credibility if that was the case. But where customers do have influence is in framing the questions responsents are asked. And I have learned that while the Com Res poll asked people to state which prty they were voting for, Survation named candidates and their parties, e.g. Joe Bloggs, The Silly Party.

So what these polls prove really is that Nigel Farage has a name people recognise. but few among us could not have guess that. As for who will wing the seat, we’ll have to wait and see. but the ballot paper will bear candidates names as well as the party they represent.

Meanwhile numbers from polls published today are as follows:

Panelbase CON 31%, LAB 34%, LDEM 7%, UKIP 17%, GRN 4%
Survation CON 33%, LAB 29%, LDEM 10%, UKIP 18%, GRN 4%
ComRes CON 36%, LAB 32%, LAB 8%, UKIP 10%, GRN 5%
YouGov CON 33%, LAB 35%, LD 8%, UKIP 13%, GRN 5%

Clearly UKIP are not dead in the water as those left wing screechers are saying, other than that if you think you can discern a trend in any of those numbers that might point to a likely election result, you’re welcome to try. Although ……………. there could be something in this story:

The Sillyosity Of The Loony Left

It’s great to watch the increasing silliness of the left, particularly those Maoist bigots the BBC passes off as impartial and objective news commentators.

This morning they were all creaming their pants about an opinion poll about a YouGov poll for the Sunday Times you can read in full here. Topline figures are CON 32%, LAB 36%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 13%, GRN 6%.

Oooh isn’t it wonderful, lovely, clever Ed Miliband really showed that posh boy Cameron who is boss, he said “Hell yeah!” That’s tough talk. And now Labour has a 4% lead and the election is as good as over,” they chirruped in chorus.

First question, for anyone who thought Miliband won that stage managed episode last week: What are you on and can we all have some please? Neither Miliband nor Cameron ‘won’, they both came across as out of touch elitists.

In fact while Sunday Times / You Gove the poll shows a bigger Labour lead for some time, four point leads are not uncommon in a campaign which has seen polls wobbling all over the place. The other poll published today, Opinium in the Observer have topline figures of CON 34%, LAB 33%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 13%, GRN 7% (details).

Here’s a roundup of the weeks polls from UK polling report:

Opinium/Observer (19/3) – CON 36%, LAB 33%, LDEM 7%, UKIP 14%, GRN 6%
YouGov/S Times (20/2) – CON 33%, LAB 35%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 14%, GRN 5%
Survation/MoS (21/3) – CON 30%, LAB 34%, LDEM 10%, UKIP 17%, GRN 3%
Populus(22/3) – CON 31%, LAB 33%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 16%, GRN 5%
Ashcroft (22/3) – CON 33%, LAB 33%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 12%, GRN 5%
ComRes/Mail (22/3) – CON 35%, LAB 35%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 10%, GRN 7%
YouGov/Times (23/3) – CON 34%, LAB 33%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 14%, GRN 5%
YouGov/Sun (23/3) – CON 34%, LAB 34%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 12%, GRN 6%
YouGov/Sun (24/3) – CON 35%, LAB 35%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 12%, GRN 6%
Survation/Mirror (25/3) – CON 32%, LAB 33%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 18%, GRN 4%
YouGov/Sun (25/3) – CON 34%, LAB 35%, LDEM 8%, UKIP 12%, GRN 6%
Panelbase (26/3) – CON 34%, LAB 34%, LDEM 5%, UKIP 15%, GRN 6%
YouGov/Sun (26/3) – CON 36%, LAB 34%, LDEM 7%, UKIP 13%, GRN 5%
Populus (26/3) – CON 31%, LAB 33%, LDEM 9%, UKIP 16%, GRN 5%

What’s interesting in that table is UKIP show a high of 17% and a low of 10% while The Greens record a high of 7% and a low of 3%. These figures mean nothing in terms of the likely election result, they show how the minor parties are distorting the picture.

So all we really learn from the latest poll is that in a way entirely consistent with their support for trashing the western economy to deal with the non existent global warming threat, and causing widespread famine by handing control of the food supply to Monsanto, the left will always happily ignore any evidence that does not point to the answer that suits their political agenda.

Update 30 March, 2015

Accompanied by the sound of eardrum shattering silence from the left, a second poll taken since the two contenders for post election Prime Minister faced a stuffing from BBC’s Jeremy (Paxo) Paxman reverses the results from the poll featured above.

a second post-Paxman poll, a ComRes telephone poll for the Daily Mail & ITV, and this one shows the complete opposite – CON 36%(+1), LAB 32%(-3), LDEM 9%(+1), UKIP 12%(+2), GRN 5%(-2) (tabs).

If the four point Labour lead in yesterday’s YouGov poll was proclaimed by the hysterical left as a sure sign the Conservative and UKIP vote was collapsing and Labour were heading for a landslide victory in May, surely this poll showing the biggest Conservative lead ComRes have recorded since 2010 shows the Labour vote is collapsing and face a defeat in England and wales on a par with the mauling they are set to receive at the hands of the SNP in Scotland.

Furthermore where YouGov showed Miliband’s ratings improving, ComRes show Cameron widening his lead as best Prime Minister.

Actually there is nothing in either poll to get excited about, all polls, when examined in detail warn that an error margin of plus or inus three per cent, so it is probable what we are seeing is just a slightly exaggerated version of normal sample variation, caused by the presence of three rather than one minor parties.

More Bad New For Lib Dems – And A Personal Message

The weeken opinion polls are in, according to You Gov for tThe Sunday Times, Condervatives and Labour are still neck and neck, UKIP continue to make progress and The Greens are doing very well. Here’s a preview from Anthony Wells’ UK Polling Report:

This week’s YouGov/Sunday Times poll is now up here. Topline figures are CON 32%, LAB 32%, LDEM 6%, UKIP 17%, GRN 7%. With Labour and the Conservatives still neck-and-neck this is very much in line with the YouGov polling before the Autumn Statement. Note the level of Green support though, YouGov and Lord Ashcroft have both shown the occassional one-off poll with the Greens ahead of the Liberal Democrats in the past, but YouGov have now produced three polls in a row with the Greens in fourth place ahead of the Lib Dems.

Knowing that Boggart Blog readers are not really interested in Labour and Conservatives, will be pleased to see The Greens doing well but have another burning question on your lips, I left Tony a PM advising him to ask his contacts in the market research business if they would kindly include the minor parties so we can all share the hilarity as we watch the Lib Dems slip behind The Official Monster Raving Loony Party in polls.

American Election Humour – Latest

We’re not interested in opinion polls, exit polls, pundit’s predictions or any of that stuff are we. Boggart Blog is interested in the absurd. And so we bring you this comment from a disillusioned American who was asked by a reporter which way he would be voting.

Voting? It’s pointless OK. Re-electing Obama is like backing the Titanic up and hitting the iceberg a second time. Electing Romney is like hitting a different iceberg.

The American Election? It’s All In The Demographics

As the two contenders in the American Presidential election faced each other in the final televised debate national polls have the candidates in a statistical tie. So which way are things likely to go? Pollsters in the USA have been looking at increasingly narrow demographics to try to gain a sense of which way the electoral wind is blowing.

Here are results from some of the latest polls (H/T Vic Damico at Gather)

Romney is leading by 13 % in states that start with an “T” with women who have blue eyes.

Obama is leading by 89 % with blacks who own a dog whose name begins with an “O.”

Romney is leading by 46 % with men who had more than $300 in their pocket at the time of this poll.

Obama is leading by 19 % with men who have a wife who works in a bank.

Romney is leading by 99 % of white women who do not watch American Idol.

Obama is leading by 59 % with those who are not registered to vote.

Romney is leading by 87 % with men living in Ohio who originally lived in Texas.

Obama is leading by 71 % with the citizens of Indonesia.

Romney is leading by 26 % with those who believe that Clinton is still the president.

Ron Paul is leading by 89 % with those who believe Clinton is still president and are trying to prevent Ronald Reagan from defeating him.

Obama is leading by 13 % with those who said they do not participate with polls.

Romney is leading by 56 % with short women and men from Kentucky who do not know who the current president is.

Sod The Exit Poll, Boggart Blog Called The Election Result Right.

It’s all very well asking people how they voted and then predicting the election result but how is that different from backing a horse after the race is finished.

Boggart Blog is the only major news publisher that predicted the result absolutely correctly as soon as the campaign began. Yes back in April we told our readers that on the 7th May 2010 the entire political community of the UK would be running round like headless chickens.
