France, India and Italy all have laws banning the publication of opinion polls in the run-up to an election.

(In France newspapers and media can’t publish opinion polls up to 24 hours before an election. In India that is 48 hours, and in Italy, 15 days.

Of course the opinion polls published in the UK were so wrong, it would be funny, if they didn’t charge £8,000 to £12,000 for the privilege of using them.  The pollsters are blaming the public – for lying.)
