Having written last week about the way that political trivia gets far more political coverage than hard politics it feels almost remiss of me not to have mentioned this YouGov polling from the middle of last week (indeed, if it wasn’t for the BBC management’s rapid implosion it would probably be the big political news still – sigh).
Anyway, for the record 77% of people thought it was wrong for Nadine Dorries to appear on “I’m a Celebrity” compared to 11% who thought it was the right decision. 73% thought the Conservatives were right to suspend her from the party until she explains her decision.
(For those appalled by such triviality, fear not, I am sure there will be polling on the BBC along before too long, and on Thursday we have some proper elections, albeit, not ones we’ve had much real polling on. More on those in the coming days)
