Red faces all round for
Tweetminsterwho have just updated their figures after Tory Bear yesterday highlighted the blatant inaccuracy in their data. The new figures are Labour 61,039 - down a shocking 45.8% on the original figures floated and the Conservative figure is 27,063 - down 31%. As TB said yesterday, there was a clear swelling of the Labour figure. Something Tweetminster were originally prepared to turn a blind eye to. No wonder the
intenational pressrefer to them as "the Labor Tweetminster"
Alberto Nardelli, Tweetminster CEO, is making great efforts to distance Tweetminster from public affairs unit PoliticsDirect. Quite hard when their MD gave them £100k. John Arnold should ask for his money back.
UPDATE 15.11: Tweetminster are refusing to reveal the methodology which mean that Labour figures were 51,810 out. They are claiming that their model would be jeopardised if they revealed the info. However they are in danger of blowing any semblance of a decent reputation if they don't at least try explain how and why they got it so badly wrong.
