This is really quite funny. The BBC commissioned a poll
effectively to show how badly public services have been affected by the 'cuts'. They are then shocked and disappointed to see that most people think that services have improved. But it's OK! The poll that they commissioned was probably junk anyway:
While general public opinion may tend towards the view that a service has been
maintained or improved, some will argue that cuts in spending have had a
particularly negative impact on vulnerable groups whose experience may not be
represented by the poll.
Double points for maintaining this line even though a specific finding in your own poll is evidence against it:
However, the survey indicates that people who use a particular service are
more likely to say it has got better than the general population.
For instance, the overall score for meals-on-wheels is minus one - a slightly
higher proportion think they've got worse than better. But among service users,
the figure jumps to plus 12.
And remember all the fuss about libraries?
And libraries - the subject of many anti-cuts protests - three per cent more
people say they've got better than worse, but among library users the score is
Strong work all round.
