    I don't understand that filtering method bit. Is it based on previous voting patterns? If not, how does it calculate who votes for who? Race, language, culture, shared origins and the like?

    It's a bit dense for me!

    @Bremenacht the null hypothesis is the hypergeometric distribution. Basically you are asking , given that I expect so many votes at random (the null hypothesis) how does this compare to my observed data?

    I don't understand that stats (indeed, I don't even understand the answer to that question) though I will just say that your arrows could be clearer. For example, it takes very close examination of the arrowhead under 'Azerbaijan' in the first picture to work out if there is indeed an arrowhead there or not.

    Basically he believes the results/votes are biased, ie. not random. If the data doesn't fit the hypergeometric distribution then he's right. If it does then the votes are random.

    Ohhhh, I see. So that diagram simply disproves any chance of randomness in the vote, there being too many strong relationships for simple chance?

    I'd like to see a diagram that shows how many relationships one country has with another (money, culture, language, anything), and whether that correlates closely with voting.

    Nice to see the UK looking so insignificant!

    I wonder how many unlikely (but strong) relationships AzerBRIBEjian has formed, eh? eh?!

    Arrows that are there are highly unlikely to have existed if countries distributed their votes at random. The fatter the arrow the more this holds

    Yeah it's scary how Azerbaijan has managed to manoeuvre itself in such a central position.

    The main thing I take from that graph (and life in general) is that Ireland is fucked.
