Fun Online Polls: Help To SellBuy & Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes

The responses to last week's Fun Online Poll were as follows:

Help To Buy: giving home buyers a twenty per cent low-interest loan is...

A brilliant idea (I am a banker or large land owner) - 2%
A very good idea - it will push up the value of my house - 5%
A good idea - it will help the Tories get re-elected 2%
A stupid idea - it will just inflate house prices and worsen the next crash - 24%
A really stupid idea - younger buyers will just end up deeper in debt - 22%
An insane idea - we should be taxing land values, not subsidising them - 40%
Other, please specify - 6%

I accept that people who respond to the Fun Online Polls here are not representative of the general public, but that seems pretty conclusive to me. Thank you everybody who took part.
This week, an entirely flippant and light hearted poll, the significance of which will escape most people: "Which was the coolest/scariest of Lord Voldemort's horcruxes?"
