NEW SURVEY REVEALS MAJORITY OF BRISTOLIAN’s don’t have the foggiest clue about the new stadium or do have the foggiest clue but that’s as far as it goes.

November 2, 2010

HaHA! Funny old world. Sexton reckons his new survey proves Bristol is united against the town green and united in favour of a new stadium.

Actually the survey reveals something else even more surprising- that 60%  have never heard of the new plans for the stadium or have heard of it but don’t know a lot about them!!!!!!!!

Even funnier is that 41% have heard of the plans and know a lot about them. Why funny?

Adds up to 101%. (comres staff splutter “oh bollox”)

Check out the tables.

    “Actually the survey reveals something else even more surprising- that 60% have never heard of the new plans for the stadium or have heard of it but don’t know a lot about them!!!!!!!! ”

    actually 8% dont know anything, but you are right it does look better if you couple it with the 52% that do know about them.

    Its a abit of a crap question as some would assume “Alot” to be Expert knowledge and would go for “I dont know much about them” in case they got asked a tough question and sounded foolish.

    What the survey also shows is that 92% of those asked claimed to know a bit about the stadium plans, This shows just what a big issue this is (you rarely get that).

    You can do Faux-maths with the age splits there working out where knowledge effected support and almost where individuals voted, and it still shows majority in favour of plans.

    in all my senarios majority of those that claim to know “alot” about plans vote for stadium close, and my method is in no way scientific and I was overly fair to your views by having those that voted no to stadium a higher percentage of knowledge of plans), asuming that all that had not heard of the plans voted “dont know” to stadium of course.

    This is of course just conjecture and speculation on voting/Knowledge patterns but is very interesting none the less.

    If I had the money, I would fund a poll which asked “Should we sell Simon Cook’s house, car and all his belongings and then use the proceeds to benefit Bristol City Football Club and the
    World Cup bid ? ”

    If I got over 60% I would use that as a mandate and demand that Cook stop being a nimby and give up his house.

    What part of 101% = fail don’t you understand?

    No I do not work for Comres.

    As for sacredspring, you’re clearly just not getting it. If they presented the results to every decimal place, you’d undoubtedly suggest that Comres were insinuating the results of more accurately reliable than they are. Looks like there’s a village green missing its idiot.

    When somebody phones my house and says they are doing a survey, my wife says “no thank you” and puts the phone down. Sadly my opinion never gets heard in surveys because she always gets to the phone first. Am I typical?

    Williams-wrong answer. You have stats failure.
    Answer should be percent is a fraction of 100.
    Go stand in corner with dunce’s cap.

    On the subject of surveys. Someone phoned me up and said they were carrying out a survey on past posts on this forum.
    They asked me if I had read the previous subject matter about the phone survey, where mine was the last post when comments were closed.
    I answered “Yes”
    They then asked me if I knew that another comment was posted after the comments were closed.
    I answered “No”
    They told me it was by none other than Tony lyer and asked if I was surprised.
    I answered “No”.

    In the added post, he denied that he had claimed that. Out of 30,000 homes due to be built between 2006 and 2026. 10,000 had already been built, 10,000 already had planning permission or sites allocated for them, so only 10,000 were due to be built.
    Any fool can see that there were still, 20,000 houses to be built but not according to Tony Dyer.
    He took sections of my past posts, put them together andit appeared I had said something different about the surveys and other topics.
    If any more subjects are about surveys, there is no doubt 100% of the content will be altered to make it seem different from reality and in support of the opposition to the stadium.
    The rest of his post was also a total fabrication of reality.
