UPDATED: What is wrong with this picture?

Now, I have to say, I am quite fond of the Guardian. Their religion posts cover a broad range of faiths and positions that you do not see on many national newspapers, and they are always well written, but the title does suffer from a historical proclivity to howling typos that I thought they had over come.

Not so it would appear.

One of the biggest stories in the UK at the moment is about the Church of England's upcoming vote on whether to allow female bishops or not, and as the Grauniad are wont to do from time to time, they have a poll to gauge the public's opinion.

The result as it stood when I responded was... er... surprising?

See the result after the fold.

Now I know it is late here, and I am pretty tired, but...

!!! UPDATE !!!

Nope. Wide awake now. And there is still something awry.

It is getting better, though.


  1. Ha! Looks like a reliable poll indeed.

  2. 91% of the public says yes.

    The church says no and they automatically get 51% of the vote.

  3. Clearly 91% of 141% of people support it, so that's 64.5%. How is that confusing... oh right, because of math.
