Based on information that has been collated by Tory peer, Lord Hayward, the vast majority of authorities will not be counting on the night. This is a great pity and means that the early “story” of the election will be determined by those that are. The overnight counts that I am aware of are:

    The make up of the Scottish Parliament won't be clear until the regional seats are allocated on the Saturday afternoon. Its not quite the US but it is disappointing.

    I had a feeling, and mentioned as much, that the dip we apparently witnessed was a temporary tumbleweed reaction to the sleaze onslaught.

    Such temporary highs and lows do occur.

    We know for example that there can be conference bounces of a similar amount to the sleaze drop: 4 or 5%.

    What really counts is whether it sticks. Everything we are hearing on the ground seems to concur with a Cons poll lead of generous proportions. 9% would not be surprising.
    I kind of agree - I think a lot of people were genuinerly shocked by a tide of sleaze reports a couple of weeks ago, butit's faded into the background for now, and a Tory recovery would be a natural consequence. That said, I think it's left its mark - people will be less willing to give the Tories the benefit of the doubt when more stories surface - these things accumulate over time.
    I agree Nick. Whilst I suspect the sleaze may have dropped out of the polling this time I think you're absolutely right. The wounds will go just that little bit deeper next time and the one after and then the one after that.

    Sleaze may be the undoing of Johnson. Or the union. But not, I suspect, the French.

    For God's sake, please do NOT share this idea with the PM!

    Because my guess is he does NOT realize, that St Helena is a British possession. Except that is for Longwood House.

    So Boris could order the local constabulary to seize Longwood AND Napoleon's Tomb, then hold latter for ransom until the Quai d'Orsay ceases & desists.

    BUT then he'd discover that the bird (or rather the bee) has already flown . . .

    Stephen Reicher, a Professor of Social Psychology at the University of St Andrews and member of SAGE, has warned that the introduction of vaccine passports could lead to people refusing to get vaccinated against Covid.

    "There is a very traditional, well-known psychological process called reactance: that if you take away people’s autonomy, if you force them to do something, they will reassert their autonomy, even if that means not doing things that they would otherwise want to do."

    I have seen his original grave site, on St. Helena.

    WE WIN

    I have just found out that the Labour candidate for the mayor of Tees Valley is actually really fit. Why didn't anyone tell me this before?

    Very jealous. I LOVE remote islands, the remoter the better.

    What is it like on St Helena?! Is it moody?

    Easter Island is incredibly spooky. Also the Solovetskys and St Kilda. All haunted in different ways
