To our survey group, Friday's eviction has the air of predictability about it..
87.6% of you think that Lea is going this week... but are you right?
Well, sadly there seems to be little controversy in store this week.
Asking ALL responders (and we'll filter this for you by Friday when we hope to have a good 1000 responses) whom they would like to see evicted the figure is 14% less, but still shows Lea hot favourite to go.. We can learn from this however that Richard is picking up eviction votes even when the almost universally disliked Lea is the only other opposition - Richard clearly remains one of the most unpopular members of the house with the public.
We'll be back tomorrow with an update..
On a blogging note, we've just reviewed our web traffic growth since Special Bets' inception in Q4 last year and are quite pleased with the findings. Almost 25,000 people viewed the blog from April-June, up from 13,000 in the prior period and 9,000 in our first quarter.
The winner of this week's "What should Oxford Uni Maths Grad Statman's Slogan be?" Competition was DAN with "Le Geek, c'est Chic" - which tickled us..
We'd also like to mention Special Bets Blog poster "Myfanwy" who said to Statman on the Blog "I love it when men talk stats at me [swoon] "
Myfanwy, if you knew about circumstances surrounding the court order CAROL VORDERMAN had to get when she only so much as smiled at Statto - you'd be more careful!
