Survey finding o' the day

Ifop has asked the Plain People of France if they agree with the following:

"I choose environmentally friendly products even if they cost more".

And with the results having come in, the pointing and laughing can begin:

14% of Greens disagree. As some wise person once put it, a principle is as nothing until it is inconvenient to hold it.

Admittedly, the Greens score highest on this question, but partisans for other parties do not make such a song and dance (or maybe 'un son et lumière') about how principled, ethical, hair-shirted yadda yadda they are.

Lutte Ouvrière, Arlette Laguiller's Trots put money first, with 38% disagreeing. The somewhat less simon-pure other Trot party, the LCR (or the New Anti-Capitalist party as it now styles itself, it having found some useful idiots to broaden its base) sees 81% making haste to the organic section at Carrefour.

Away from political affiliations, men are more taken in by greenwashing at 77%, compared to 74% of women. One can guess who does most of the shopping. As to age, the under 35s are the least persuaded at 67%, compared to 79% of the over 35s. Unexpectedly, the 65+ cohort is the keenest at 85%.

The other questions in the poll do not offer as much scope for amusement, but note that Lutte Ouvrière voters (72%) are the most prepared to make daily economies in order to fund leisure activities and so forth. Presumably that would be the cost of travel to all those demos. Greens follow at 69%. There is a distinct split between the apparently fun-loving left, where 68% live for Saturday night, so to speak, compared to the Liberals (54%) and the Gaullists (53%) who feel the same way.
