Given that Google +1 is being rolled out I asked our techie team to add it to the social options across our site.
Econsultancy blogs fail in the same way, but the audience here is unlikely (one hopes) to be using IE7, same seems to be true of most other sites that currently have the +1 button on their pages.
Has anyone found an effective workaround as IE7 is still 10%+ of our traffic and it's unacceptable for us to provide a bad experience for that many users.

Thanks for pointing this out. Around 4% of our site visits are IE7.
I've just checked our blog using IE7 and I don't get an error as such. The Google+1 (and, indeed, the Facebook Like) just don't show at all but the page otherwise seems fine...?

We've found a work around (posted below).
When you say you have checked on IE7, is that IE7 tab or IE7 - we found it works as you suggested on IE7 tab, but not on actual IE7 (we have a box with vista running just so we can test it properly).
I just checked again and we still got the debug error but the page had loaded behind so it's not as bad as it was. We've used the following code to fix the error.
