Latest cuttings: Full Fact and Hackney Citizen

A short post, just to link to a few things I’ve done recently.

Firstly, a couple of articles which I wrote for factchecking website Full Fact:

Full Fact logoAre only 1% of illegal immigrants deported?

Getting higher: has mephedrone use increased by 300% since it was banned?

I’m a big fan of what Full Fact do – calling out media organisations and politicians over dubious claims they’ve made and misleading use of statistics. Although a small organisation, they have an impressive track record of getting dodgy claims corrected.

I also wrote an article for the Hackney Citizen on a police request for a review of the licence of The Dolphin on Mare Street – a move which has led to howls of despair from the pub’s large fanbase.
