If you are going to run a poll it has to be democratic or it has no validity. The £25 charge poll over at NBW was biased. It was removed because it suddenly got 71 votes against. Note it was not removed because it had nearly 2000 votes in favour, in a day. The 71 votes were removed.
But you must read what Tom Crossley said about why.
Tom is now claiming a clear mandate for the £25 charge even though the poll was at best flawed at worst a sham, but then Tom has done this sort of thing before.
One only has to go back to 2005 and his CCer’s poll which was pulled because of complaints about the loaded question.
