Re: I’m being spied on

Hugely informative - thank you.

And they do this for the post-results analysis as well as the pre-ballot prediction polls ?

Re: I’m being spied on

Fairly clear on ipsos MORI's part, Tim.

They firmly state it is an estimate then "calibrated" somehow.

Re: I’m being spied on

Just an extra thought on post-results analysis - but still very much on point. We have become accustomed to seeing demographic analysis of how the vote was distributed amongst the electorate., Age and gender are two of the elements (there are others) that are frequently reported on both for election...

Re: I’m being spied on

Tim - thank you - but no need for the apology. Your post is insightful and particularly describes what little we do understand about how our data can be put to use of one sort or another and not always to our benefit. To know that because of how you have been profiled you might be subject to a campa...

Re: I’m being spied on

That could be the simple answer. I have had a postal ballot for some time. This does not stop a certain party dispatching a volunteer to offer me a lift to the polling station because I have not been "seen" to attend. I diligently refuse to answer all questions about who I vote for when asked durin...

Re: I’m being spied on

Do CA or any party have a better view of how I'm going to vote than me? Stuart Many media reports from people who were hacked by Facebook and CA expressed surprise at how precisely CA predicted what their political aspirations and their propensity to vote one way or another might be. Even worse was...

Re: I’m being spied on

A little separation - but relevant. The BBC do lie to us.. "An interview given in 1968 by BBC director general Sir Hugh Greene shows the BBC's policy of denial and obfuscation in action. To a reporter from The Sunday Times in February Greene blithely and misleadingly declared: "We have a staff of 23...

Re: I’m being spied on

For better or worse, the Labour Party is by some way the most competently run political grouping in LB Lewisham, and will have canvassers noting what has been told them, even if the People who told them have subsequently forgotten. They may make a few errors, but will at all times be well aware of ...

Re: I’m being spied on

Easily. Every ballot paper has a unique number - and possibly this provides the key link.. And whilst we are repeatedly assured that all elections are conducted as a secret ballot - election after election someone turns up and either knocks on your door because they know how you voted and want you t...

Re: The Monstrosity - ie St Philp Neri school building

I am relatively new to this board and have tried to upload pictures without success.

I do not think you can upload a picture from your own pc/device.

You can link however to a picture that is already present on the web.

Admin can correct me if I am wrong.

Re: Queensthorpe Road Smart Bench

I thought this was a smart bench: https://www.highsnobiety.com/2012/01/17/smart-new-nike-running-park-bench-campaign/ It took two looks before I realised this was a bottomless and therefore seatless bench. A wicked infliction of a bad sense of humour on some hapless local residents somewhere - the ...

Re: sticky:Mural?

I would also concur with JRW's view - even though have not yet spotted the artwork. Equally have spotted that a similar gable poster site overlooking The Dolphin and which I believe belongs to the undertaker has fallen into dis-use. Perhaps an opportunity to strip the advert hoarding and paint a mur...

Interestingly it was realised rather late in day the that the location of the Forest Hill mural was contained within the extents of the extension to the conservation area there.

They also suggested that they would prefer the plainer brick wall to the left of the “turdis” as looking at it (the southernmost part of the wall that boundaries the bridge, station platform and WC if looking on a map) to be painted. This is a much smaller wall/s (including both walls as it covers ...

Undoubtedly a well deserved break.

Take time to wind down - and don't re-engage too quickly - particularly if it is not essential.

Enjoy yourself.
