In praise of More or Less

AT A time when there has been much rumour, disinformation and spin around coronavirus in particular, London Freelance Branch felt that it should recognise solid journalism based on factual evidence where it exists. So at its July virtual Branch meeting, LFB passed a motion proposed by its Treasurer Jenny Vaughan, which "congratulates BBC Radio 4 presenter Tim Harford and the team of the statistics series More or Less for their excellent work over 14 programmes on the covid-19 pandemic.

The motion notes the success with which they "demystified, debunked and frequently challenged the government's statistics, always with clarity and frequently to devastating effect."
