There is an interesting article in the Economist (here). It details how there will be increased oversight of how statistics are used in politics. Amongst other things it notes how there will be an official channel whose role is to ensure that statistical assertions are valid & not misleading, and implies that they will speak out to point out distortions. I love it. If there is one think worse than not being in the news to a politician, it is being in the news as a charlatan. I hope the fear of being embarrassed makes them think twice, at least, about the haphazard and deceitful way that they use statistics.
