A British Nate Silver(s)?

Perhaps.  I was unaware of this trio prior to reading about them over at UK Polling Report, which is odd as I’ve been reading The Times‘ soccer (football) coverage for the past ten years.  The most recent football blog entry of theirs I can find is over two years old, (any readers know otherwise???) but this piece in The Times seems in awe of their methodological prowess.  When Silver turned his attention to politics I was largely pleased, as one buying the Baseball Prospectus since their second year (no, I will not claim to be one of the 12 rec.sport.baseball participants who jumped on the BP bandwagon from the beginning.  Call me a late bloomer.)  I knew Silver et al. knew what the hell they were talking about, due to my unfortunate passion for baseball.  These guys in the UK seem to have the qualifications, putting it lightly, but I haven’t had the time to digest how they apply this to sport.

The British context is at once more complicated and simpler than the American context, in terms of predicting outcomes of an election.  I’m intrigued.
