Letter:Lie detector

Sir: I read in your paper of Disraeli's broadside against "Lies, damned lies and statistics", but I fear this is another lie. Or at least a misrepresentation if you are attributing the phrase to the politician and not to Mark Twain (in his Autobiography)


Yours sincerely, PAUL STANJER Enfield, Middlesex
