So a tweet today from the Refugee Council said:
New stats also reveal 28% of asylum appeals allowed. Gov is getting over a quarter of what can be life & death decisions wrong first time.

My first thoughts were that doesn’t add up. A quarter of all decisions wrong first time?
This would mean that 90% of all decisions would have had to have gone to appeal. Surely we are a) granting more than 10% and b) appeals aren’t 100% of all refusals.
