I think it's going to be quite an historic night in British Politics. Imagine all the deals that are being made all the strategies and alliances coming into play as we watch. Fascinating stuff. As a side note I'm really missing the Monster Raving Loony Party.

Tis intriguing.... It's still early so everything looks good (in England) if you're left of centre... It also looks quite interesting in Scotland - early swing to Labour, no doubt an SNP fightback and possibility that the Tories could get chucked out (again).

If only time could stop now...

You may not need to be so worried, the Dark Lord of the Sith will tell his Emperor to do a deal with the devil to hang on to power. I can see them now in the Death Star, ringing the hotline to HELL  :lol:

Oh my gosh. Unc Fester and I are a bit taken aback by the loss of Celeb-MP-Number-One.... It's cos Simon Cowell told everyone to vote Gory Tory.

However, within 6 months, Lembit will have his own TV show (hopefully displacing Andrew Neil), co-hosting a show with Peter Robinson - Different Votes, perhaps....

Clearly, folk up here are so scared the Tories might get back in that they've decided the safest bet is to vote Labour.

Meh.

Well there's been lots of tv shows in the last few years about moving to the countryside around. Y'know downsizing and buying houses in quaint little villages for the price of rabbit hutches in the home counties.

My other (non-rhetorical) question is "where are the Monster Raving Loony Party?".... I was about to say "where are the people in fancy dress?" but they're now showing Cameron's result and there are two....

If only one of them would win....
