General Election 2005 coverage

Very sad this... We're playing bingo, using bingo cards from the Times. We have strict rules: it must be on BBC2's coverage (David Dimbleby and friends on BBC2 Scotland, as BBC1 has been dedicated to Scottish news). No channel hopping to BBC1 or ITV purely to get words.

22-something: Plus point of GE2005... Kirsty Wark has been banished to Folkstone. She can go patronise them Southerners instead.

2255h: Congratulations to Lizo from Newsround. He's been promoted to adult TV!

2325h: Where are these extra Tory votes coming from? In the North East of England, for crying out loud! Apathetic Labour voters staying home? Or many secret Tories, crawling out of their rabbit warrens?

2336h: Here's a scary thought: Boris Johnson and Anne Widdecombe are one and the same, kinda like Zaphod Beeblebrox with his 2 heads. Either that or they share the same wig.

2339h: Jeermy Paxman at it again. Attack dog! And Ian Hislop lowers the tone of proceedings. You go guys! Paxman: "Disgraceful shouting match!" Dimbleby: "Bun fight!"

2343: Peter Snow's new swingometer with 3D men and battlefield schematics is pretty cool indeed. Perhaps they should program Weta's "Massive" software with MPs' personalities, and count all 646 run away from the orcs and Uruk-Hais.

2357: First Scottish constituency, Rutherglen and Hamilton, sees a 4% drop for Labour, a massive 7% up-turn for the Lib Dems, and rather surprisingly, a 2% drop for the SNP.

Continued in a new post so it's dated accurately.

You have a riveting web log and undoubtedly
must have atypical & quiescent potential for
your intended readership. May I suggest that
you do everything in your power to honor
your Designer/Architect as well as your audience.
Please remember to never restrict anyone's
opportunities for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything, a season for every
activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time
to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time
to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and
a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to
scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time
to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A time to keep and
a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time
to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak
up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for
war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
