Im watching this at the min on UTV, I love elections, all the spin, celebrations and recriminations.
 I have only a passing knowledge of British politic, I would be pretty familiar with the goings on up north though, Its all facinating. Beware the polls, and bring in PR, it makes it even more entertaining!

Our Lib Dem candidate went by the unlikely name of Sebastian MartineauTombs.  And he lived in that Edinburgh, some 70 miles away from our actual constituency.

That's nothin'. Our's lives in Birmingham (over 300 miles away).

I'm Staying up for this. The right ear of Andrew Neil is scaring me on BBC1. I think he could be a Vulcan.

It's going to be a long night so time to open another bottle. We are trying to take it seriously but the Mrs and I are now voting on who has the best ears for the job. If it was all down to ears I think Brown could win it.

What Party was fist man representing? I know he got 57 votes.
The Mrs said he must be a comic book fan which did make me laugh.

Fist Man was some kind of "Land of the People" party - no idea what he meant. Thought it was black power with vitiligo..... (but that's obviously wholly inappropriate)....
