“Everyone does it” statement failed to be backed by actual evidence


After confidently stating the well-known phrase, a man was held to account as passers-by requested proof that this was indeed the case. Needled for empirical data provided by respected research establishments, the backtracking individual then badly misused the expression “it’s just common knowledge”.


When contacted, independent survey professionals confirmed that they had no results to back up this claim and even after carrying out an appropriate questionnaire with a reasonable sample size they could only find a negligible amount of people who confessed to “doing it”. This was later classified as zero when the margin of error was considered.


It is possible that the statement was made to justify the man’s own horrible actions and opinions, however this is just speculation, and we are awaiting the results of the official enquiry. Furthermore, the phrase “They are all the same” was deemed to have been made by the accused without any facts to substantiate it or collaborative witness statements.


An already agitated crowd then turned their frustration on an individual with no real understanding of proverbs who said, “Not to worry, it is just a few bad apples.”
