I thought that omega-3 had failed in almost every good RCT (not that the "supplement" gives a damn when there's money to be made).

I mean that there is no sensible way to characterise a university by a single number. And even if there were, the errors in the estimates would be big

Both candidates are so similar even their own supporters get them mixed up... (I.e. both promise no deal if necessary even though neither Hunt and Johnson cannot promise they can get a no deal through Parliament.)

So the fallacy that trips up The Book of Why explanation is a common one and is referred to as “pseudoreplication” by statisticians. It is addressed here

Pre-Corbyn, most of the student Trots like Helmi were in the SWP etc anyway. But Corbyn's Labour is, in effect, SWP v2.0. That's his real achievement as leader.

Tories take the lead with Ipsos-MORI. BXP drops 4 to 12%. LDs up 7 to 22. At last month's Euros Ipsos-MORI was the most accurate pollster CON 26 (+1) LAB 24 (-3) LD 22 (+7) BXP 12 (-4) GRN 8 (-1)

Wrong. It is possible for the UK Government to call something an implementation period or anything they like. The implementation period in the Withdrawal Agreement can't happen without that agreement. Amazingly Brexit narrative is worsening as a result of the leadership contest

There is no 52% any more. I doubt now if there's even 40%. Give it up

Why would the EU agree to this? It's a wish list not a serious basis for discussion.

Yes because Brexit probably will result in the break-up of the United Kingdom. It’s astonishing that it took three years for some folk to work this out, and that it would be the Conservative and “Unionist” party that would try to save themselves by destroying the U.K.

Aha, so that's who should take responsibility for the statistically-illiteracy of the rankings.
