This Times graphic about Boris Johnson’s popularity had people bellowing into their breakfast

To The Times, where the paper had some interesting stats to report about Boris Johnson’s popularity among Tory voters.

And it wasn’t the figures themselves that sent it viral, it was the way Rupert Murdoch’s publication presented them.

See if you can spot why.

The graphic was sent viral by teacher @mrwbw among others on Twitter, where it was spotted by one of the paper’s journalists and is now being put right, by all accounts.

Here it is in the wider context of the piece it was trying – and failing – to illustrate.

And just some of the many things people were saying about it.
