  • @kayray I played Spore for hours, but it wasn’t very rewarding. The final space stage, wtf? Didn’t win that. Not a patch on Civ. #
  • Heading off for election counting in Nottingham. I’m the only Lib Dem with the power to insist on a recount. Unlikely to be doing so. #
  • @artesea us too. #
  • @artesea I think Election Commission pay wages for counting staff and returning officers? #
  • @lordbonkers I’m hoping for another Gore Vidal moment, “I don’t know who you are!” #
  • This election programme on News24 is just awful! Enough! #
  • Oh is that Chris Byrant on Sky News? Not sure I recognise him with his clothes on. #
  • News coming in that East Mids results may be delayed by recount in Hinckley and Bosworth. #
  • Eek. R/o just called Wales a region. #
  • @lordbonkers counted/announced only at local authority level not constituency. #
  • Finkelstein calling events good news for Michael Foot as he is no longer the worst Labour leader in history. #
  • Very sad backdrop to Plaid spokes on Beeb – caretakers tidying away empty chairs whilst alarming eyebrows wiggle. #
  • Very melancholy backdrop to Plaid Cymru spokes on Beeb – caretakers tidying away empty chairs whilst alarming eyebrows wiggle. #
  • Finally, the East Mids results. BND back in. That Jury Team kid looks like he’s struggling to hold back tears. #
  • So… is it possible to get a spreadsheet of Euro results without installing Silverlight? #
  • @owenblacker have been sent this data link but can’t make it work: http://bit.ly/JAtxA #
  • No-one I’ve spoken to re my broken tooth seems bothered. “Come in when you can” is this a routine occurrence? No hurry if it doesn’t hurt. #
  • @owenblacker but presumably if Emids is there the rest are too by amending the URL a bit? #
  • Walking to work. Something I should do much more often. #
  • No doubt massively over-rewarding my exercise with calories. #

  • National projected voteshare on BBC News – LD up 3% on 28%, Tory on 38% down from 44%, Labour lowest ever on 23% and a wopping 11% Other #
  • Here in my control room on sofa with (eee)pc, beeb news, mobile, and increasingly bad tempered Bond villain style cat. #
  • @TomattheChad excellent service, watching you closely. #
  • @libdems @NottsCC is also useful, but hasn’t yet had the results from the hopeful LD gains #
  • Received a #postcrossing postcard from Italy – http://bit.ly/YoGtO #
  • Received a #postcrossing postcard from Canada – http://bit.ly/uHxaN #
  • Lib Dems on #Notts County Council looking at gains: already got to as many as previously with lots of our contests still to declare. #
  • @TomattheChad BBC News just called Notts County as NOC, that’s not official yet is it?? #
  • @alanfleming think most of the losses are West Country, where it’s certainly a bit scary. #
  • RT @CatAllenUk: Jason Zadrozny has spectacularly called on Ashfield MP Geoff Hoon to resign as he took the seat for Sutton North. #
  • Tories gain control of Notts CC. It’s tipping it down with rain. Coincidence? I think not. #
  • Election’s over. Now I need a new excuse to put off dieting. #
  • Grr. This isn’t just rain. It’s Tory torrential rain! #
  • @jonball verification should be face up except for euros. #
  • Ooh. That’s a weird feeling. I think I just lost half a molar. #
  • RT @damianbenner The #libdems have taken Hull, Liverpool and Bristol. Is this some sinister strategy to first control the ports? #
  • If only everyone was helping vital pollinating insects thrive. I say – give bees a chance. #
  • Where’s the download button gone from BBC iPlayer website? #
  • @USElaine far from it – they had some of the strangest abuses – moat cleaning, duck houses and the like. Somehow it seemed not to matter. #

  • Some tips for voters today: you do not need your poll card to vote (but it speeds things up. Polls open 7am-10pm. #

  • The Mansfield Chad’s coverage of the county elections is whupping the ass of BBC and Nottingham Evening Post. Put them in charge everywhere! #
  • Heh… http://isgordonbrownstillprimeminister.com/ #
  • Hmm, @libdemlocalgov appears a lab hold announced already, so RSN? But yesterday staff weren’t expecting results within business hours. #
