Your arithmetic is deficient like so many doing these daft exercises. So few of you seem to be capable of simple addition or again of simple proof reading. What an utter shower!
There is nothing deficient about my arithmetic. My predikshun adds up to precisely 100.0%, as required. I added in an arbitrary 13.0% for George Galloway's Hat precisely because I wanted to demonstrate the fact that these predikshun competitions are indeed daft and pointless exercises. In other words, you are agreeing with my brilliance, not condemning it.
Labour governments are always voted in by empty minds, and voted out by empty pockets

"The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air — it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right." - Henry George
