Louis in his usual patronizing and dishonest way tells us:

Lenin studied statistics because he knew from his extremely thorough study
of Marx what to make of them.

Louis on the other hand has never made a study of Marx, thorough or
otherwise, which makes the gobbets of statistics he throws in our faces
>from time to time quite the opposite of useful.

Doug, on the other hand, has studied his Marx, and can tell a statistic

Cheers,

Hugh
