This is an interesting read. Theresa May‘s government launches a website that offers a complex picture of life for different ethnicities.

Personally, I found the data rather sterile. It needs a rolling commentary to highlight the major findings by theme/ethnicity.

The data is esentially descriptive and does not readily facilitate further analysis.

For meaningful analysis, access to the full data set is required, ideally showing key demographic details like:

Theresa May and David Cameron before her, have tried to provide greater data to facilitate policy decisions. Unfortunately, I fear that this latest data will do little to improve the underlying policies.

There’s a risk here of journalists dipping into the database and cherry-picking their data to embellish a headline.

Ethnicity is a complex subject and without expert commentary, and detailed data sets, it’s not clear how this initiative will help faciltate policy changes.

Thoughts?

It’s too late for Theresa May to save herself. But she can still save her party | Matthew d’Ancona | Opinion | The Guardian

Here’s a good read in the Guardian. Guardian columnist Matthew d’Ancona argues that the best the prime minister can do at this stage is smooth the path for Ruth Davidson.

This is exciting stuff and the neo-Communist Labour Party would have much to fear from Ruth Davidson as PM.
