Fun Online Polls: British troops in Germany & Michael Stipe's Jaguar

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

Would stationing 3,000 extra British troops in Germany make any difference to Russian expansionism in Ukraine?

Yes - 2%
No - 21%
Oh come off it, did somebody really suggest that? - 76%
Other, please specify - 1%

A reasonable counter-question, and the answer is yes:

Britain should station 3,000 troops in Germany to avoid appearing weak in the eyes of 'resurgent Russia', says former Army chief
* Lord Dannatt says troops would underpin diplomacy with Russia
* He said the West must not be 'weak in resolve and muscle'
* Retaining 3,000 troops in Germany would show Britain is 'serious'

Go figure.
For a bit of light relief, this week's Fun Online Poll:

"Which model Jaguar would Michael Stipe out of R.E.M drive?"
