    My first attempt at a poll...

    And sorry but nope, nothing to do with 'Education news'... just you know, news. Triggered by...

    http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/201...abour-conference_n_8195562.html?utm_hp_ref=uk

    Just 22% of Labour supporters, and only 18% of all voters, back Jeremy Corbyn's position on scrapping the Trident nuclear weapons system, polling for The Huffington Post UK carried out by Survation has revealed.

    Ahead of a potentially fractious Labour Party conference in Brighton, the poll also reveals 24% think the new Labour leader is a threat to national security, a message that was hammered home by the Conservative Party in the aftermath of this election victory.

    But it also found he was no less trusted with his finger over the nuclear button than would-be Labour and Conservative leaders.

    There are two types of opinion - off the cuff emotional reaction; rationally considered.

    Very few people even bother with the latter. We live in a world of chumps.

    It think it's an option given to enable people to change their mind if they've been initially rash in voting but have later been influenced by the debate, lan. You only end up with one vote in the end, so far as I've been able to work out. If a mod reads this, perhaps they will be kind enough to clarify how the poll works.

    I agree, it's not education news so this thread will be moved @lanokia to Personal.

    Jez is still banging on about despite being overruled by the party. He may have to vote against what his followers want.

    Where would be a good place for people to post their opinion on a topic like this?

    Corbyn should have been voted in by any party presuming to call itself Labour.
    The fact that the rest of the party thinks Tory but just couldn't bring itself to vote it is a different subject.

    We need a Personal Opinion forum.
