Poll Result.

The poll on how many MPs will resign produced the following results:

11 to 20: 16%
21 to 50: 28%
51 to 80: 20%
81+: 36%

The last day or so has illustrated two problems with the question, firstly how to account for MPs who announce their resignations but for unspecified reasons? Secondly do MPs who have resigned from their parties front benches count as resignations? I'd say no to the latter but the first question is tricky.

That said I think the idea that more than 80 MPs will resign over expenses seems unlikely and we already seem to be approaching 20 so I'd say the two middle ranges are the most plausible.
