    I think Colin is missing the point of this sub-forum. You make an assertion and you back it up w/ a link. Simple as that. None of this "finger-on-the-pulse" (it is because I say it is) business :rolleyes:

    Take the example of the figures Pew shows for David Cameron. Pew shows that 46% of the British public have confidence in Cameron. A poll conducted by YouGov at the same time as Pew's fieldwork was being conducted shows that Cameron's popularity was at its lowest ebb with only 30% saying he would make the best leader for Britain.

    I've learned to take research of this type with a pinch of salt since none of them can ever come up with similar findings.

    I don't think I could see a grain, let alone pick it up!

    The fact that Romney angered several nations, and is getting a pass from both media outlets and posters here reflects the double standard.

    Those are two completely different questions.

    You can certainly have confidence in someone, yet still think someone else would be a better leader.

    There is no contradiction there.

    Britain stands by the Falklanders because THEY want to remain A British territory and we shall continue to ensure self-determination for them as long as they want it. Incidentally, a lot of men gave their lives for those principles, many of whom were close friends with whom I was proud to serve. You will understand, then, why I find your off-topic attempt at humour somewhat pathetic and less than intelligent.
