Last week in reaction to the most recent CADRES poll, the UPP spin machinery launched a “political broadside” on this author in an attempt to suggest that CADRES’ predictions were either flawed on account of a poor methodology or were inspired by “ill-intentions”grounded in our support for one of the political parties.  Naturally neither of these propositions are true and while I appreciate that “self-praise is no praise” I also feel constrained to correct several perceptions that the UPP machinery has sought to promulgate.
