Every two months, The Poll Bludger rattles the tin to gently remind readers that this independent, free-of-charge resource relies on their patronage for its survival. Those who would like to do their bit can do so through the PressPatron button at the top of the page, or the “become a supporter” buttons that appear at the foot of each post. If you encounter technical problems of any kind, please drop me a line at pollbludger-AT-bigpond-DOT-com. Many thanks to you all for helping keep the Poll Bludger dream alive.
