Is it significant that the BBC have put Andrew Marr with Cameron?

I see Ben Kingsley and Bruce Forsyth are giving their expert political views. Is that an attempt at glamour?! Fail.

The BBC coverage, as usual, showing why the TV license fee is well spent. David Dimbleby > Jonathan Dimbleby

BBC is annoying me! Why the silly camera angles and the moving cameras?!

Reply

Alexander Prowse Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Think the TV license fee has been spent on that HUGE screen in the studio. I'm sure that was in 'Tomorrow Never Dies'?

Initial exit polls for the Lib Dems - what the fucking fuck? O_o

"Should polling stations be kept open if people are queueing?" No, they should have got there on time!

(a) what does Dom Jolly have to do with anything and (b) why are the BBC having so many technical difficulties?!

Reply

Alexander Prowse Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Yeah, think YSTV should do their own coverage. Studio a tad smaller, but no technical difficulties.

I love the way the first three results have come out, then everything just seems to have ground to a halt; maybe Labour are hoping that's it...?

Hello TF!! What's your poison tonight?

Kieran Murphy Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Tom, why do you think that is? That the three Sunderland seats happen so fast...

"It's because they're 'all so hot', apparently" indeed we are.

David Cameron could not be less of a LAD

Kieran Murphy Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Why are ITV showing 6 seats declared, 4 Labour 2 others yet the BBC say only the three Sunderland seats??? That's quite a disparity...

Missing postal votes in York apparently - could be bad times for your vote!

Reply

Helen Everett Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

I think it is awful that people have been turned away from polling stations. Voting should be easy. The people that have been turned away weren't even late!! I think it is an embarrassment for the electoral system, and serves to highlight the problems with democracy in our voting system!

Alexander Prowse Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Think it shows there just aren't enough Church halls in Sheffield

No Tory results yet...

Also, well done to the Alliance in Northern Ireland!!

Am I alone in thinking that Brown may have, somehow, pulled a rabbit out of a hat? Just in terms of pure numbers yet through...

Reply

Kieran Murphy Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Also Kate- Labour have got 21 seats as I write but lost 3, while the Tories have 5 seats but gained 2 of them...

All in all, I think there is a swing underway, just it hasn't materialised yet...

Although what the final numbers will be is beyond me...

ITV obviously following after Sky's infamous motto: "Never wrong for long"

So sad that Lembit Opik lost his seat. No more cheeky girl politics.

The big question Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Dimbleby, Paxman, Neil - marry, snog, avoid?

Oliver Hutchings Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

...and there I was hoping the exit polls would be even less accurate than their YUSU equivalents.

Oliver Hutchings Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Looks like my home constituency of Sutton and Cheam is going to go to the dogs too.

The Lib Dems are married to the sea without a doubt.

Yeah, seriously worried about Jason now, is it time to send out a search party?

The Yorker have called York Central for Hugh Bayley but since I came off the phone to him five minutes ago (and he said that it would be about an hour), I suspect that they're not basing it on fact. It looks likely to lean that way.

As for York Outer, it looks Conservative but there will definitely be an uproar over the issues with lost votes. Expected at about 5am, still.

Labour win Norwich North.....

Nice that you care, Nouse :)

Anyway, back to doing live reporting from around the city - back on later..!

Burstow you beauty!

I can sleep happy tonight, unless of course Stroud thinks my postal vote was actually a daemon and performs some sort of night time exorcism on me.

Stelhan Ariyadasa-Saez Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

After this long out campaigning, with that much effort, York Outer goes to the Tories? What the fuck do they *want*? Gold-plated ballot papers? A firing squad for every immigrant for a hundred miles? Anal penetration with the spiked dildo of Thatcherism a thousand times over?

AAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGH

If Clegg doesn't attempt to prop up Labour after this catastrophe, the Liberal Democrats have well and truly failed.

PR can be thrown to the winds, as far as I'm concerned- so long as we get a non-Conservative Government. Reasonably sure the Liberals would be able to moderate Labour to a certain degree, even after this disaster.

Reply

Ali Clark Posted on Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Stelhan, just remember the Labour "catastrophe" is that fewer people have voted for them, that is all.
