BBC (NI) loses it

I have to note this, the BBC NI’s Stephen Nolan has just pointed to an on-air text vote on his TV programme, Nolan Live!, as evidence of public opinion.. in this case, on the value-for-money of MLAs.. 91% said No!.. which amounted to around 5,000 texts.. from a self-selecting sample.. Doesn’t the BBC have a single statistician on the staff?.. doesn’t any member of that programme, or the editorial staff, know the phone number of a statistician? Sheesh.
