Who's Doing The Election All Nighter?

Recommended Posts

I've got the telly, beer, the grub and the armchair, and I'm aiming to go all the way through!

Am I on my own here?

Sort of sad thing I'd normally do, but have a long day tomorrow starting at five AM, so will probably go to bed early and get up about three to catch some of it!

I keep telling them all in my house that I intend to stay up all night but the truth is I rarely get past 10.30 without dropping off so it's not looking likely.

I shall do my best.

Now it seems it's Lab/Con neck and neck I've lost all interest.

Work tomorrow anyway

We don't get to know our overlords tonight. There won't be a majority and it'll be up to four days of haggling before another unholy alliance is annointed.

(This prediction may look really stupid by breakfast time but heck....)

Pizza, beer, whiskey, chelsea buns, I am ready! whether I have the stamina to last the night, that's something else. The mind is willing but the body may be weak.

I sat up for the 1997 one. This time I can't be bothered. Though the poll they have on the BBC seems surprising, as all the panellists are commenting.

I couldn't be arsed to go and spoil the ballot paper in the end, I just had a little sleep instead.

I have this streaming on the other monitor.

Someone from Sunderland apparently called Bob Dylan?

Ed Balls speaking.

Jeremy Vine and some graphics superimposed on the ground showing the 'way to number 10' in a sort of John Craven's Newsround style of presentation.

I can see why people have gone past caring.

Much preferred the graphics of clothes peg figures filling up the green benches as used in coverage of elections long past.

Neil Kinnock on now.

"The country needed a government with commitments to housing, to jobs for young people"

Well, that wouldn't be Labour then would it. Pimping debt and pumping the housing market to get tax from the City to buy votes with, and unchecked immigration shafting young people were core policies.

This tribalism and inability to see facts is staggering.

Orwell would have been proud of him.

I could not believe just how disconnected Kinnock is with reality.

I think that they run on a sort of auto pilot saying certain things without thought, a bit like driving on a long journey.

When actually confronted with the truth, they cannot recognise it.

Milliband is toast now, as is Nick Clegg.

I had to switch over before they wheeled Kinnock out. I have a delicate stomach.

Shall be up for a few hours yet - plenty of coffee and a slice or two of toast and Marmite. Or maybe I'll go mad and make it blackcurrant jam.

Mr B has gone to bed. I said go on then, you boring old bugger.

There is some blonde Yank-sounding woman on ATM who sounds just like the cupcake queen on Ballot Monkeys.

I've just been on the toast, with Lidl marmalade. Getting second wind as the results come in.

Marmalade does that to me, too.

I ain't stayin' up.

Lyin' in bed with Radio 4 election coverage. It's horrible, but addictive. Bit like HPC, really.

Oh, and hoping against hope Balls loses his seat, so he's out of the running to replace Miliband.
