Don't Know

I liked this blog article on the BBC this morning:

It basically says: Polls don't include the "don't know" respondents when reporting results.  So when we're told x% support tighter immigration controls, it's even more bogus a number than we might have already thought.

Yet the "don't knows" are probably the wisest respondents of all, since they realise how complicated the underlying issue is that the questioner is being asked.

Having said that, the case regarding immigration is clear.  If you want more expensive meals, transport, etc., then by all means throw out all the immigrants.  Be careful what you wish for...
