Lies, damn lies, statistics and David Cameron's anecdotes

Hat-tip to the Guardian for analysing those anecdotes that David Cameron shared as part his disappointing and lacklustre performance in the first Prime Ministerial debate last week.

Firstly, Humberside police did not pay £73,000 for a Lexus.

Secondly, no-one joins the Navy at 10 years old.

Thirdly, no such murder happened in Crosby.

That clears that up then.
