Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

There's interesting post on government stats at Web Diary, Gerry.

It confirms what I have felt for a long time about unemployment stats and the CPI figure.

Thanks for that pointer to Webdiary. Excuse me if I remain sceptical when statisticians speechify. I will defend them though by saying that it's usually people who misconstrue or deliberately misinterpret the meaning of the numbers. There's the number (stat) and then there's what you're having it mean. The devil usually lurks in the latter.
