Anti Statistical Behaviour

I was watching Question Time tonight and heard a repeat of the accusation that ASBOs didn’t work “because 50 per cent breached the order.” I thought this was odd first time round. To my mind, that statistic proves the opposite.

What it demonstrates is that half of the people with ASBOs stuck to the restrictions imposed upon them. More to the point, the authorities knew exactly who of the other half weren’t and so, presumably, took sterner action.

Or is that me being simplistic?
