Visit with David Butler

Today, I met up with Prof David Butler. I had attended his seminars while at college. Maybe that's why I retained some interest in psephology. Enough anyway to get me through work on the Felda and Johor papers. It was a treat to see him at Nuffield and to attend a Friday 5pm seminar at the aptly named Butler Room. He asked me many questions on the state of Malaysia and shared updates on his work and observation that the Election Commission in India seems well functioning in its role. Butler is famous for the Swingometer.
