YouGov founder is a tax evading TORY MP

YouGov have been on a roll lately, dishing out a series of ‘damning’ anti-Corbyn polls with leading questions like ‘why is Jeremy so shit?’ and bullshit like that. So naturally, they got my back up. Whilst Blairites have been lapping it up and pointing fingers at the leadership, genuine Labour supporters and truth-seekers have been saying ‘hold on a second, maybe we should read between the lines.’

Medium.com have reported Today:

 So, I did a bit of digging and went on the internet. I googled ‘YouGov’ and spotted a link to their Wikipedia entry. It Immediately seemed like a good place to do much of my research. The First thing that strikes you is the revenue, £88.2 million, spread between 692 employees — that’s a pretty tasty earner. Especially when you consider that a good proportion of that number are going to be non-unionised catering and cleaning staff, probably on minimum wage. Seems odd that a company makes that much money simply asking people how they’re going to vote, almost like there are powerful outside interests involved.

The second thing that strikes me is the name of a prominent Tory MP, a Mr Nadhim Zahawi in the list of founders. Google his name and the first thing that comes up is a Guardian article detailing extensive links to companies with tax havens. Also noted, one of those companies owns a £20m stake in YouGov. Absolutely fucked up for a start, but even more so when you think the absolute one guy who would be coming after them like a train on fire is, one, Jeremy Corbyn. If Jeremy became PM (and this will happen, trust me on this), the first thing he’s going to think is ‘right, which tax dodging pricks do I need to shakedown to get the NHS back on its feet?’ See where I’m going with this?

So, anyway, there’s only one true way to debunk their bent polling. Firstly, you need to take a truly unbiased approach to test their findings. So I decided to produce my own set of polls to see how they fared against YouGov’s findings. Not really a face-to-face guy, but every time I produce a poll on Twitter and Labour win (in a landslide), Blairites tweet at me saying ‘echo chamber, rah rah rah.’ Listen, there are 16 million users of Twitter in the UK — if that’s not a representative sample then I don’t know what is. Apparently, only 12% of votes cast are used for an Exit Poll, and yet 16 million is more than 20% of the population. But anyway, at least with face to face you can’t be accused of tampering.
So, I thought ‘fuck it, I live in London for a start — so I’ve got every race, religion, nationality, sexuality, class, gender and a political view I could want on my doorstep. I don’t have to travel far because I’m already somewhere that’s a representative cross-section of the whole nation.’ So, I loaded up on my Oyster Card, hit the railways hard and got chatting this city’s finest.

After a gruelling day travelling all around zones 1 & 2, I leafed through my notes and totted up all the responses. ‘Not bad for a day’s work’, I thought. So, then it was time to produce my findings. ‘Even more work now’, I thought, again, to myself. So, I sucked down a bong to get some focus and went hard at it. This time it was less physical, but it still took its toll as I spent several hours tweaking algorithms and playing around with some advanced maths. Luckily that shit comes easily.
