understood to have voted eight to one
From news sites:

5,811 crew voted for strike action, and 1,170 voted against. Turnout was 72% and only four voting papers returned were invalid.
So, can someone explain where the "8 to 1 in favour" claim has come from when my calculator says 4.967 - 1? And that's before we consider the small matter of the amount who actually voted and compare that to the actual membership (around 9701, by my reckoning) and the actual number of crew.

Guess it's time for some seriously ridiculous claims from Bassacolytes regarding "8 to 1".....
