Erm, not quite

PoliticsHome appears to have finally got off the ground, and moderately interesting it looks too.

However, this bit does not do its credibility much good:

"A pioneering online focus group of cross-party MPs, senior political editors, commentators and campaign strategists has delivered a strong majority verdict on the best way for Ken Livingstone to rescue his London mayoral campaign. The Phi100 panel is an expert panel of over 100 of the top political brains in the UK. It includes senior members of the government and some of the biggest names in political journalism, responding by email to 5 political questions every working day".

So far, so ho hum. But what's this? 'Who do you think is most likely to win the London mayoral Election'? 69% Boris, 30% Leninspart, one per cent Paddick. What manner of top political brain thinks Paddick is going to win, eh? The spread at Betfair for Paddick is 100/150 at the moment.....

The mayoral election result is never going to be as polarised as this, so why is this survey of any use?

The question to the panel was who do you think will win, rather than who do you want to win. I suspect the Paddick afficianado did not read the question, or else has been indulging in psychoactive drugs.
