It also stated: \”Despite the impression given by the media, the actual number of homosexuals is quite small. Essentially all surveys show the number of homosexuals to be only 1-3% of the population.\”
Drugs charities and experts yesterday expressed surprise that someone of such stringent opinions could be appointed to the committee.
Some of his other views do seem a tad, erm, strong shall we say, but that particular bit seems to be simply a statement of fact.
But why would anyone declare a statement of fact to be \”stringent\” if there wasn\’t some political malarkey behind the number?
An interesting note to add to our new curriculum using population surveys of gays to teach children about statistics, eh? Or even the political use of them?
