Interesting stats

Over here are some YouGov stats (which I linked to this morning) talking about the breakdown over who is in favour of prosecuting over the Twitter joke debacle.

The first interesting stat was the split by age - 22% of 18-24-year-olds were in favour of prosecution, versus 71% of those over 60 years old. Whether that's the nature of making jokes being age dependent, or the nature of Twitter, or both would be fascinating to disentangle.

A more subtle stat I noticed was the figures for people who voted LD at the last election, versus people with a voting intention of LD now - with the percentage of people in favour of prosecution falling from 47 to 44, and those against rising from 42 to 49, indicating that the people who left the liberals were less in favour of free speech than those that remain.
