This morning's Round 1 was a fiery affair (you can taste it again for the first time here
). Joe Warmington was invited on to discuss his column
about carding. In it Joe compared crime statistics from before and after carding was abandoned to show that crime has gone up. He contends that you can't rule out a relationship. That's true, but as other participants on the panel pointed out it also doesn't prove a relationship. The price of cauliflower has also gone up since we stopped carding.
