Union elections fb group

I really should be doing some work but I am not.

If we assume that facebook is everything (not an unreasonable assumption) then it can accurately predict the election results.

So here are the number of people in the fb groups of the candidates for President (and the number of people invited) at around 16:15 on Monday week 7 (day 1).

  1. Mitchell Fung: 215, 1614
  2. Andrew Bradley: 147, 859
  3. Sam Shirley: 106, 876
  4. Asen Geshakov: 70, 206
  5. Andy Glyde: 58, 441

By far Mitchell is the big winner.

I can't be asked to do it for the other positions.

UPDATE: previously I did not find Bradley's group. This has now been corrected.
