Apples and Oranges

Here's how to compare apples with oranges ...

... and here's how to compare apples with apples!

That second-link above, indicates that from General Election to General Election, Edinburgh has seen:
  • a 3.1% drop in Lib-Dem support
  • and a 4.1% increase in Labour support

--- which means the gap between the two has gone from:

  • 1.4% in 2005
  • to 8.6% in 2010

That's right - the gap has increased more than six-fold in five-years.

Claiming that as a success is bound to quell any sense of unease on the Lib-Dem backbenches - don't you think?

And we wonder why politicians have got a bad name :-(
