Torture numbers, and they'll confess to anything

..as the writer Gregg Easterbrook once said.

I’ve been less than impressed with the governments recent decision on how to tackle illegal filesharing 1, but now it’s been revealed that the statistics that they are using to back it all up are dubious, to say the least.

Or as someone else once declared, “facts are stubborn things, but statistics are more pliable.”

Why let little things such as facts and hard evidence get in the way when you have something to prove?

  1. and for those that missed it, they’re insisting that ISPs remove customers internet access if their IP is traced and they’re found to share files. So, no possible issues there then![]
