Unite Union Funded LabourList Website Predicting Tory Victory

Charlie Whelan will be wanting his money back: the once McBride/Draper controlled website now under new management has gone way off message tonight.  Advised by Labour supporting YouGov pollster Peter Kellner, the website is using various statistical methods to forecast the May 6 result. Using polynomial trending (no, Guido doesn’t understand it either) they are forecasting a 9% lead for the Tories on polling day. In other words, a comfortable Tory majority…

            And what makes you think a unique situation may not occur? 1997 happened because Conservatives did not turn out to vote,due to a healthy level of disgust at the ‘sleaze’ in government. At least Labour have raised the bar in that respect.

            The last hung Parliament was in 1974 and before that 1929, so I suggest you may also be dreaming.

          Has anyone here ever beleived the conniving polls compiled by Liebour sympathisers- BBC, You Gov and this one? No, I think the vote will be more like last years local and European elections that’s why McSlug has delayed the election for as long as possible- it’s not his fault, it’s the Americans, Darling wrecked the economy not him, he didn’t deregulate the banking system, he did not knight Sir Fred an anomulous committee did, he dd not want the backhander from Lord Paul- he just gave it to him, he is going to sack McBride for smearing, he didn’t want him to do it, he didn’t want to sell the gold he was advised, he provided enough money for two wars, the military chiefs are wrong (he never did apologise to them even with his most insincere expression of Proff Moody), He didn’t want to change the face of Britian through immigration, there was too much sun- Met Office fault, He does not have a second home he has four including the two grace in favour ones, in any case the tax payer is charged for all of them so it does not make any difference. You can trust Brown’s judgment , he won’t let you down. It is all the people around him who are to blame, he is only one of a team (of idiots).

        Quite right Nick. Give those Labour voters plenty of reason to defect to the B&P. Fucking Cameron and his clawhammer thugs. You give those committed lefties all the reason they need to stop voting Labour.

        I genuinely wish you the best of British in Barking – where I’m confident my fuckwitted younger brother with the Rhodesian Ridgeback (and his wife) will be voting for you and also in Stoke where Labour have committed electoral Hari Kari by parachuting in a child doomed from birth to be a homosexual jackass by being christened Tristram-fucking-Hunt.

        For me Nick- after 13 years of betrayal it’s all about revenge. As Churchill said “If Hitler invaded Hell, I would at least make a favourable reference to the Devil in the House of Commons,”

      FOr non mathmos:

      A polynomial expression is just any mathematical function of the form

      ax^n+bx^(n-1)….dx+c.

      so like x^2+2x+1 (second order), or x+4(first order), or x^3+x(third order).

      Essentially, if you have a reason for suspecting the underlying mechanism follows a polynomial function in reality (e.g. a second-order chemical reaction) then a polynomial trend makes sense.

      Here it looks as though they’ve just used a second order polynomial to fit voting trends, which is the kind of retarded thing people who don’t understand what they’re doing do to look clever. For this kind of data, a moving average would give you a better trendline.

    Polynomial trend just means drawing a best fit line through all the points and allowing it to widdle (curve) rather than be a straight line. The fit won’t be very good though, looking at this, which suggests that the confidence in the precise prediction for May 6th is actually very low. You’re better off just eyeballing it.

    Don’t read too much into this polynomial trending, certainly not because it fails to correct of parallel voter shifts as wel as for Brown’s core vote buying through expanding the public sector to 6 million and the millions on means-tested benefits and mutiply those by 2 because they have families and then compare that to the 9.5 million votes labour got in 2005 and then do your polynomial maths again and then get scared.

    PS polynomial trending can be plagiarised in excel with line fitting in graphs or data anaylsis (be sure to insert the analysis toolpack). And go for the other option than fitting a straight line.

      Polynomial trending has no relevance to this situation. The election process from here in is entirely random. Cameron could make an absolute pratfall in the ‘leader’s debates’. The Maximum Imbecile could play a blinder or, more likely, be exposed for the misanthropic, mendacious, disingenuous, lying, economy wrecking, war-mongering bastard that he is.

      The newspapers could report on some hitherto ‘saved up’ idiocy by Cameron/Brown or Darling/Osborne.

      It is utterly chaotic. A 10% lead could evaporate overnight or turn into a 20% lead depending on how things play out.

      The only thing in the UK’s favour is that Labour voters remain at ‘core’ (non-thinking- Labour-voting) levels. But four more weeks of ‘10% isn’t enough – a hung parliament is on the cards’ from the impartial BBC PLUS events (idiocy/Cameron getting run over by a lorry/appearing dr*nk on TV) could still turn things.

      I personally hope not but the very existence of the Gruainiad and the ra-ra Labour jackasses evident there is always cause for concern. How, you have to ask yourself, could such self-evidently fucking stupid people still remember to breath let alone remember to vote.

      This looks like a mindless data mining exercise with no underlying theory as to the model structure.
      The data as plotted are granular – ie rounded to the nearest 1%.
      There are too few points (degrees of freedom for the cognoscenti) to assign any significance to the model fit and parameter estimates, given the data variability.
      The “best estimate” of a “curve” IMHO would be 2 parallel lines – a blue one at 40% and a red one at 30%. No temporal trend.

    According to Wikipedia –
    “Polynomial is an expression of finite length constructed from variables (also known as indeterminates) and constants, using only the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and non-negative, whole-number exponents.
    For example, x2 − 4x + 7 is a polynomial, but x2 − 4/x + 7×3/2 is not, because its second term involves division by the variable x and because its third term contains an exponent that is not a whole number”.
    It would be interesting to know what their constants are.

    The curves shown on the graph are second-degree polynomials. It is almost vanishingly unlikely that such a crude curve-fitting technique would give a valid method of predicting voters’ behaviour. One would need to find a plausible mechanism for voters’ sentiments to be expressible in terms of y=ax2+bx+c as opposed to any of a dozen or more other possibilities.

    The most likely formula, I suggest, would be y1=y0+d, where y1 is the voting intention today, y0 is the voting intention yesterday and d is a small quantity, partly random and partly dependent on factors such as the latest news, the weather and whatever has caught the voters’ imagination today. Curve-fitting would be useless to predict such a variable.

    BBC pulling out al the stops. Every question framed in labour terms, every interview conducted from labour perspectives. Every definition bent (AV described as PR for fuck’s sake), every scrap of Labour triangulation reported uncritically and without comment. Oh, and total censorship of course. The BBC censors removed my comments on Shill Robinson’s blog yesterday – anyone read his madness? It was a hoot.

    he wrote:
    “This was, though, the only evidence of Gordon Brown’s “meetings with the people” being obviously rigged, although the workers the PM met in the canteen here were chosen in advance and the local Usdaw rep seemed confident that none were hostile”

    to which I responded:

    I’m sorry Nick – your last blog is already inexplicably closed, but the thundering nonsense of this paragraph just wouldn’t lie down and die. Can you explain what on earth you mean? Does it make *any* sense to anyone?

    You really are going to have to up your game. If you think the people of this country are going to tolerate a BBC that willfully conceals faked “meetings” with “ordinary people” that are in fact stage managed meet and greets of the Party faithfull, then you have another think coming. Oh, and you might censor comments here, but the BBC is just one platform, remember that. You can’t gag us all any more.

    * Brown forgot to say the headline phrase “the future is ours to win”. His final lines were “It’s a future fair for all, now all of us let’s go to it” but these altered by Labour to “the future is ours to win, now let’s get to it”
    * Brown claimed he was from a “middle class” family, but this disappears from the official version
    * Brown referred to “our police, our schools and our hospitals” which Labour HQ altered to “your hospitals, your schools, your policing”
    * Brown said that that if they got “the big decisions right….jobs, prosperity and better standards of living will result” but according to Labour HQ he actually meant “prosperity, jobs and better schools and hospitals will result”.
    * “Small businesses are starting to grow, but a double dip recession would hit thousands of them” becomes “Businesses are growing in confidence again and the party who would pull the rug from under the recovery could tip us back into recession”;
    * “Politics has been scarred by recent events” becomes “Faith in our democracy has been rightly shaken by recent events”; a “still new century” becomes a “young century”.
