It's Green vs UKIP? I was not aware. I assumed it was a Tory stronghold. One to look out for then.
According to an online poll on isle of Wight radio it's very close between those two. But I'm not sure how accurate it is. I assumed conservatives would win but I'm not sure now.
That appears to be an ONLINE YOUTH POLL so I wouldn't pay too much attention to THAT.
Oh ok! I won't worry just yet.
Yeah everything else suggests it's a pretty safe Tory seat.
Damn it. I want the Greens to get in.
I did not know this. This has now made my day happier.
Hooray for Rob Da Bank <3
They'll keep Clacton, and gain Thurrock and South Thanet. The first two are pretty nailed-on in terms of betting. Mark Reckless will lose his seat. so gain two and lose one.
They're polling a close second on about four seats, but I think they'll not win them.
C4 have just pointed out what a bland campaign this has been. I tend to UTTERLY AGREE.
I live in a safe Tory seat and judging by the campaign leaflet they shoved through my door last week they're a DREARY GREY LOOKING LOT TOO. Bragging about "tearing down the hated imax cinema on the sea front so the nice sea view is restored " OH. Cause you can't get a SEA VIEW in BOURNEMOUTH ANYWHERE ELSE.
Cheadle has started to LEAN CONSERVATIVE
QUICK, DESPATCH BARONESS WILLIAMS!!!
Moopy EXIT POLL added
There's nothing for independent or other in that poll.
I literally cannot find how to edit a poll. I have been doing this for the best of 10 years. Another mod?
Election day is always weird as after a month (or 6 weeks in this case) there is barely any political news, just that there is a vote. I'm nipping out in 10 minutes to discover BNP no longer exist.
Polling station DEAD
The Labour and Lib Dem poll colours have worked out nicely.
I just voted in a YMCA 10 minutes away, when there's a perfectly serviceable Primary School at the end of my road.
I quite like this going around the net:
people unable to vote in Hackney
I haven't read it fully, but how can you have a technical glitch with paper voting?
I have a friend who's one of these people and she says theres waaay more than just 50 people who can't vote.
their printer died
Local council in absolute shambles SHOCK.
Just do away with them completely. Waste of money.
I am so embarrassed. I made a joke Facebook election post quoting some Lene Nystrom (from Aqua) lyrics, and one of the most important Muslim thinkers in the UK replied to it.
I'm leaning towards staying up for the coverage, even just to prepare myself for a Conservative-UKIP-terrible Northern Irish anti-GAY ABORTIONS party coalition.
I went to the slightly less upmarket local primary school to hand deliver my postal vote, as I am incompetent. I think I expected more fanfare, I wanted to be grilled ruthlessly in an exit poll. Basically I wanted to walk down the street and for it be like this:

'Its your #duty, duty, to shake that #booty, booty. Small, fat, all round or juicy, #youarewhattheydesire'.
It was a PISSTAKE gone WRONG!
How FABULOUSLY 1997. I feel like that election was my first drink. I keep trying to repeat that first amazing high, but nothing compares.
It's official: Me and Mr Ag have now voted for TWO different Moopy posters.
I really want to put that Labour advert on my FB, but I don't want to go ELECTION OVERLOAD.
WHO and WHO?
I never got a card but I'm DEFINITELY registered at my address. Ah well they probably presumed I'm DEAD!
Penelope (two years ago?) and Seb Flyte today!
The first Mooper to vote Tory to be sent to Raqqa and STONED.
My favourite part is the elderly QOL manning the polling station and her look of astonished delight. Apparently the 2005 edition just replaced the people waving at him on the street with dead Iraqi children littering the roadside
Amazingly Jark is going Labour so we can count him out. David5K?
It's wall to wall highlights. The old man nearly getting the voter giving him a THUMBS UP and big Tony Blair reveal.
Mr Ag thought Things Can Only Get Better was by Heather Small.
Some woman at my polling station was having a issue with voting too. Couldn't make out exactly what was going on as I wasn't fully awake but she had a polling card and the old man assisting her was muttering about something being "really not acceptable". Will have to keep an ear out for any further issues.
