The most important question that we, the Atlas Forum, should be asking is... What kind of detail of results maps can we expect to see?  By Westminster/Holyrood constituency?  By council ward??  Cheesy

As a manager, when we take on somebody new, we usually figure out fairly quickly if we've made a terrible mistake in hiring them.  If so, that's when we start to 'performance manage' them out the door by the end of their 90 day induction.  We do 30 day reviews, then 60 days, then finally 90 days.  If we want to get rid of them, then we give them a less-than-appealing review at the 30 day mark.  Chances are things won't have improved dramatically by 60 days, and if by 90 days we're still wanting to get rid of them, then that's the time we do it.

As Al has correctly pointed out, as can be seen from his doltish gawp the current royal baby is clearly not a bright child (the result of generations of inbreeding on the father's side, obviously), so perhaps they're hoping for better results this time around.

Either way, awful news. The royals evidently breed like rabbits, which, like said pest, makes them more difficult to exterminate.

It's very disappointing that we allow this sort of filth to be posted on our forum. Shameful.

Oakvale's IP address is being forwarded to MI5 for further investigation as I type this.

Not sure any single poll, no matter how significant, deserves its own thread.

Besides:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=154076.0

In the United States, no one has really been talking about the Scotland referendum until this poll came out the other day. It was pretty big news.

That's because the polls had been showing a status quo result, therefore nobody should care.  But with this single poll, our noble media can now herald a new narrative along the lines of "Is Jolly Olde England about to fall apart??!!"
