It amazes me how much more accurate YouGov are than their competitors. Can't wait to see what their first polling of the European Elections gives the respective parties.

I think Letts should be forced to take part in "I'm a Celebrity..." with George Michael, Barbara Windsor, and Elton John in penance for his Tilly the Typist remark.

YouGov are fine until Peter Kellner's anti-smoking bias gets in the way, then their figures go the same way as a Fyffes survey about banana consumption.

Sorry, can't take them seriously while he is in charge.
