Poll Results

October 29, 2020

The results of the poll are now in, and are pretty clear cut.

I know some would have preferred a “None of the above” option, but the results would have been pretty meaningless. I’ve no doubt similar results would have occurred if such a poll had taken place at any other time in the last couple of decades or so.

The post attracted 1033 views, so the turnout vote was actually quite high, particularly since many of our readers live abroad and will probably have been less inclined to vote.

It is also worth noting that the PM poll attracted almost as many votes as the EU one.

I know that the vast majority of readers rarely or never comment, so I am glad that they have had a chance to express their views.

    Something very badly awry with these results.

    This represents the opinions of the readers of NALOPKT.
    It should not be confused with the opinions of the UK electorate as a whole.

    That’s because “us readers” are a small clique.

      That is rather stating the obvious

      Experienced in the real world, scientifically knowledgeable, sceptical and capable of reasoning? Unfortunately a rather small clique, as those who don’t have these attributes become politicians, bureaucrats and “climate activists”.
      Or go to work for the BBC as “Climate Advisors”.

    WHY! Most of the readers are enlightened thinkers seeking the real truth.

    I’m not quite sure what the point of the PM Poll was. Without the opportunity to insert alternatives to the existing party leaders it was pretty meaningless.

      It was a bit of coffee break fun Bertie. No one’s betting the farm on the results.

        Bugger, I was betting the farm on the results !!!

    I am going to be a party-pooper. As a piece of coffee-break fun it most certainly was however such polls can have a serious inherent weakness:-

    I voted once from my PC via Firefox then later on I viewed the site from Chrome and was able to vote again! In both cases the underlying PC and IP information will be the same and only the browser identification will change.

    The problem is that in any web-based polling scenario the ability to distort, influence or skew the results is incredibly easy and the tools readily available. Although Paul’s poll was a piece of fun how many polls have been influenced by those with means and motive for their own ends?

      It was demonstrated that the No 10 petitions website is open to mass fraudulent signatures generated by computer.

    The one about who you’d prefer as PM, is a bit of a “Do you prefer a kick in one of your bollocks or both”?

      That’s if you’ve got bollocks!

    In fairness we should probably acknowledge the considerable limitations of self selecting samples – and recognise when they are being used to “prove” arguments elsewhere.

    My philosophy is that each one of us has specific major tasks to achieve in life….and one task at a time for most people. A single person is not expected to do the whole list. This is also just being pragmatic.
    I believe Boris is where he is for the priority task, to get us out of the EU. Despite the backsliding and patronising by Macron, this looks like being achieved….fingers crossed.
    But my instincts tell me that a different inspiration will be needed to get us through the climate crisis/AGW illusion…maybe even a change of leadership..Boris seems to be zombied almost like a millennial on this issue. I wonder who his house guests have been over this last year.

    It seems that other inspirations are urgently needed now to inject reality into the debate on natural immunity. We need a fresh and clued-up champion to push away the fear/doom big pharma/research lobby jobsworths. Boris seems to be completely under their spell. This must be the next priority.

    There is more time to deal with the climate issue than the Covid one. Batting away on the climate scam can and must, without question, continue as hitherto, while we try to get everyone’s feet clear with a seismic shift in approach to dispelling Project Fear – Covid.

    Paul Didn’t get notification of Poll. ???

    Dissatisfaction with Boris and his cabinet grows ever stronger. He is allowing himself to be bullied by the so-called science into a financial and social disaster from which of course his advisers, being paid out of the public purse, will not suffer. It is time to realise that covid deaths are a tiny minority of all deaths, that other much greater causes of death are not being treated, and the tiny minority dying from covid are extremely elderly and usually suffering from other diseases. Just stop this nonsense now, and let the younger and fitter-and even the older and fitter-get on with their lives.

    ‘None of the above’ would have been useful as it would express the abstention (and perhaps dissatisfaction) rate. Never in my quite long life have I seen such favourable preconditions for a new pro-prosperity libertarian party.

    Boris as the best? And plausibly so?

    It’s not only grim oop North it’s grim down South too.

    Boris is marginally less bad than the others – but I couldn’t bring myself to vote for him in the poll because of his hugely damaging and hysterical over-reaction to non-issues of both climate and wuflu – and his failure to defend our culture, history and monuments from attack by BLM/Antifa/Labour Deep State and his promotion of the anti-white ‘diversity’ agenda – in fact the list goes on and on. He’s bloody awful – but marginally better than Mr Potato head Ed Davey and Sir Kneel Starmer.

    Tbh the average bloke down the pub would do a better job than the average MP (all parties), do they become MPs cos they can’t get real jobs?

      Those who can do, those who can’t teach, those who can’t teach go into politics.

    I found the poll mildly entertaining but not surprising. It was worth doing, however and kudos to Paul. The results are important.

    Boris always was a risk and still is. Most politicians, their advisors and all who hang on to their coat tails know nothing about science, engineering or as some might say, common sense. The current Global warming nonsense will probably destroy our country unless the few of us who challenge it find a way of making our challenge public.

    It’s this type of posting that is beginning to put me off this site. I visit it regularly to digest facts, this type of posting steers it more towards an ideological site.

      Oh lighten up Simon. Paul deserves some less intense hours every now and then.

    Meaningless.
