Didn't we used to get results earlier in the old days? Off to bed, and only 4 seats declared.... all Labour, though.
Does anyone else feel guilty for voting for Simon Hughes even though they're Labour supporters, on the basis that he's an excellent MP? Or am I the only Labour supporter in Bermondsey who voted for Simon? Or even the only Labour supporter left in Bermondsey......?

My new discovery is that IKEA in Croydon is open till midnight on weekdays. Went down there to sus out Billy sofas and join what must be the saddest group of people in South London. (Quite a lot of them and surprisingly young.)
IKEA also hosts a polling station. So if you live in Croydon you can go to vote, have a plate of meatballs, and then pick up some shelving. Live the modern life.
Got home at 12.30 dreading having to unload the car by myself, to discover that Mr2 was deeply engrossed in swingometers. The good thing was I got help with unpacking the booty. The disadvantage being that he got to see the purchases before I had a chance to hide some of them. He is not convinced by the need for more scented candles.
Went to bed once I discovered that my friend fighting an unwinnable seat had lost her deposit.
I was amazed to see a queue in our polling station ( the round house in gt.dover street) and all young people were in front..wonderful they realise the importance of voting..til they get disillusioned at least!
