Step inside the online polling Tardis

Say what you like about the Scotsman, but it can't be denied they allow people a much more generous amount of time to vote in their online polls than any other news outlet I can think of. For instance, still running in the sidebar of some articles (and billed as "today's vote") is this one from 2008...

"Who would make the best Scottish Labour leader?

Iain Gray
Cathy Jamieson
Andy Kerr"

Vote Gray - you know it makes sense.

  1. I just voted for Iain Gray.

    I note though that the good readers of the Scotsman disagreed with me (although my vote worked out quite nicely from my point of view).

    I wonder though if this is not a case of hindsight having 20-20 vision.

    Who would make the best Scottish Labour leader?

    Results: 34% Iain Gray: 45% Cathy Jamieson: 21% Andy Kerr
