    I don't know, there's a certain ring to the election slogan:

    The the Liberals - so good we use the definite article twice!
    The The- not keen on their music.

    I've got to admit that the odd bit that I've listened to isn't to my taste either.

    After 11PM.

    So what do we think to the actual results? Will the Greens beat the Liberal Democrats?

    I quite literally wouldn't count on it - here in Tower Hamlets they STILL haven't managed to count our council votes. Which probably means they haven't even started the European ones and the London region at least will come in late because of it.

    I hope so, and they certainly should in the North West, London and I think South East too, but could be very very close overall between them.

    Surely after the delay they would have outsourced it to another borough? Wait: Don't they count the EU votes first?

    I'm going to go against the wind here and say Labour - the UKIP vote, despite what the BBC would have you believe, was relatively disappointing in the locals, and I think their support will drive many who may otherwise have stayed at home to go and cast a vote against UKIP.

    1% between each of the top three. Greens 3% down on LibDems due to Pro-EU parties generally performing better. (In Netherlands)

    Doesn't seem like it, they have instead moved the count to a completely different part of the borough, presumably transporting all the ballots in the tightest of security conditions And they verify them first but not count, but the count is ongoing now across the country and doesn't seem to have started in Tower Hamlets.

    They actually did very well. The last time that these seats were contested they had 3% of the vote, compared to 17% now.

    I think the Tories, Labour and Ukip will all breach 20% but I think that none will breach the 27% of the Tories in 09.

    Ukip probably wins given that 70% of councils did not have elections and so you'd expect Ukip voters to be more motivated to turn out.

    I think being above 20% is still a pleasing result for a mid term Tory government.

    I also hope we get results across the continent, I've taken a big interest in the pan-Eu picture.

    Hopefully the UMP give the national front a bloody nose.

    All of this week while in the south of France I have seen Front Nationals, and Jean Marie LePen grinning at me on election posters. I have little time for the UMP but would like to see them beat the Front National.

    I hope so too!!!
    Can't see it though. UMP is pretty 'bland' as a party currently. Rocked by scandals over the last few years, so it's done nothing recently basically. Election campaigns been underwhelming. And based on polls they might not even beat the PS at the next election, despite Hollande being pretty much the most hated man in the whole of France, and probably the most hated leader in the western world. Approval rating dropped to below 17% the other week. But UMP are leaderless.

    FN on the other hand have (somehow) attracted the immigrant vote! And are appealing at the same time to the staunch socialists who want fewer immigrants! It's all very weird over here.
