The round-up of political stories while Politics Daily is taking a break seemed like a good idea but it was taking too much time.
Instead, I’ll feature a political story of the day and welcome you to add others.
My pick won’t necessarily be the most important one, it can, as today’s does, raise a point no-one else does.
The story on this morning’s Herald-DigiPoll survey said Internet Mana would have two seats.
Over at Stats Chat Thomas Lumley reminds us of the margins of error:
. . . That’s probably 9 respondents. A 95% interval around the support for Internet–Mana goes from 0.6% to 2.4%, so we can’t really tell much about the expected number of seats. . .
A small change in a small number can appear to be far more significant than it is.
