    Screenshot it. We want daily updates post-election.

    Can you also confirm that you have the community team ready to dupe check straight away once the election is complete so we don't wait a week like the by-election.
    I've been keeping a note.

    Jenhasdreams is handing over the reigns so there appears to be a little uncertainty but it should be fine.

    Ummm...Marxists?

    Although in fairness we've a wide range of left-wingers, from demsocs to left comms, Trotskyists, De Leonists, Leninists and the good old-fashioned Marxists.
    Although I'm not sure if anyone actually classes themselves as those....



    That's because Quamquam123 really wants to be in the Socialist Party...
    You make it sound like I'm becoming desperate.

    A 20 coach train carries more people than a 737 in any case. Or an A380 which I imagine would not be used on domestic flights.
    We weren't discussing a380's on domestic flights you brought up current northern runways as a reason to do nothing on air travel but that isn't going to solve the problem.

    This isn't a either or situation we can have flights and trains but you seem to think that domestic flights are terrible and shouldn't happen.

    I think the votes after 24 hours have Labour leading because their user base is large, the Conservatives with half as many votes, the Liberals behind with UKIP slightly behind the Liberals, and the other three parties trailing.
    Labour's membership is actually not all that large because we ran a roll call a few months back. What it does mean is that the large majority of those users are likely to be active on TSR at some point this week however.

    The Socialists apparently have 253 members so I wouldn't use user bases as a factor in predicting electoral success. Besides, we only have around 40 now.

    If active users in the member base were counted as individuals who would spend time to vote in a poll but not enough time to be an MP, or write legislation, I think Labour would be ahead with the Conservatives behind.

    And only a portion of those 40 are active.

    I'd have to know who is in the Tory party to really be able to respond with authority but I do doubt that.

    Most were active enough to post in the roll-call thread (and those that weren't are MPs who have shown themselves to be active enough to vote in division) so as James said, all active enough to vote in a 7-day poll.

    Nige is probably right by the sounds of it although much depends on engagement and attraction still.
