Nick Barlow Explains the British-Election-in-Progress
The British election will be weblogged:
What You Can Get Away With - Nick Barlow's weblog: OK, I have no idea what's going on - Lib Dems lose Newbury on a 6% swing to the Tories, but hold Cheadle (the most marginal LD seat) on a 4% swing away from the Conservatives. Now, Labour hold Edgbaston with the Tories making almost no gain against a 6% drop in Gisela Stuart's vote.
I have no idea what's going on as Labour have now held Ynys Mon (Anglesey) from Plaid, so if anyone has a clue, please say so.
Actually, I'll make one prediction: at the next election, all three main parties will have new leaders.
Hornsey and Wood Green - Lib Dem gain with a 15% swing! Barbara Roche, you just took one hell of a beating!
Current predictions: BBC say 359/201/59, Phil Hunt says 365/190/60.
