To be fair I didn’t scroll all the way to the bottom to see if any poll had more than 50 voters so if you can find the proof…

43 voters. So close!

I don’t recall anything being laid down about quorums before voting started.

My thread, my rules.

(If you have the time to go through the thread and collate the rest, go for it. I stopped because 1. CBA 2. the voting of the latter polls is skewed towards a subset of users when a lot of people gave up)

I avoid all brexit threads for the sake of my own MH so I have no real clue how all of this came into being but can I just say that these are pretty much without exception a great bunch of results (GBOR) and I wholeheartedly endorse them.

edit: just seen there was a huge polling thread earlier which passed me by because I’ve been in the classroom all day. As you were.

We only managed to nationalise two things in that entire thread? What a disappointment.


No-one thought to put forward a motion to just nationalise everything :frowning:

to the victor go the spoils

Only about half way through that thread, hope there’s some more juicy bits

Not sure this is EXACTLY what we signed up to
