We are having technical difficulties. The polls on the blog are not working properly and I'm going to try fix them with a new gadget. In the mean time I'm going to have to suspend the weekly polls. What seems to be happening is that votes are not being registered. I have suspected this from the last poll (see http://thingselliottsays.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/weekly-poll-lowdown_20.html) where there was a 3 vote turnout. I tested this by casting a vote myself and that with all the other votes on the poll have disappeared.
