Worlds most admired 2018 ( YouGov )

A recent poll from You Gov has placed our First Minister Nicola Sturgeon the 10th most admired women in the UK Ahead of Theresa May.  Source: https://yougov.co.uk/news/2018/04/11/worlds-most-admired-2018/

 

Whatever will your SWMBO have to say on the matter?

I'm more concerned that Angela Merkel is further up that list than I would of liked. Must be the hair that does it,

My SWMBO would be asking why am I looking at a list of women.  Roll_eyes

That's an easy get-out situation, just say to her "These are all the women I have shunned just to be with you", said in the most convincing voice you can conjure up to make her feel special... Grin

Depends who and where you ask.

Change the country to China for example and Xi Jinping is top for men and Peng Liyuan is top for women.

Who'd have thought?

And 2.50% against 2.40% for Sturgeon and May respectively is hardly a ringing endorsement!

Russia on the other hands gives surprise surprise top stop for Putin at 24.30% - yet he got more than 75% of the vote for that Presidential election. 

I'm saying nothing comrade. Roll_eyes

I think 37,000 people were asked to take part in this poll. Pretty sure Putin would of got more than 37,000 people voting for him.

Indeed, but who the heck has heard off half of them, least of all the likes of somebody Fan Bing Bing? 

All good fun of course but a big dash of salt needed with these things. Thumbs_Up

As I never voted towards that list it means nothing to me.

Just other peoples opinions to laugh out loud at.

@billnotben

Well it's conducted using the internet, and less than half the world has access to it so.....

https://yougov.co.uk/about/panel-methodology/

I worked for a couple of years as an engineer for a company called Audit of Great Britain (AGB) who would collect and collate television viewing figures for the British Audience Research Board (BARB) and despite what they might say, we were at the sharp end dealing with those 'panel members' and it was just all garbage.

We knew it, the panel member knew it and I'm sure AGB knew it as well, but BARB seemed to think it was wonderful after all if you go to the trouble of providing those figures they must be right, right?

Err, no. It really was garbage in garbage out as they say but despite all that, it's fun to look at. Thumbs_Up
