Election Night

For those of you who will not be at an election count on Thursday night (which includes everyone in London as we count on Friday) you will be able to watch me on the BBC's election night coverage at various times between 11.30pm and 4.30am.

Me, Iain Dale and Lib Dem blogger Alix Mortimer will be at City Hall with the BBC's Emily Maitlis where the BBC want us to:

- act as an alternative results service- if you can help us beat David Dimbleby, we want to hear from you
- find out what's going on a round the country- atmosphere at counts, rumours, gossip, colour- we want it all
- talk about the reaction to what we're writing on our blogs
- draw attention to other eye catching posts on political blogs

As well as writing on our own blogs there will be a 4-way blog that you'll be able to find here.

I've set up an email address for people to use to send me info they think I ought to be reporting on on the night - LukeMay12008@hotmail.co.uk so please use that or the comments here if you are at a count on Thursday and there are results or gossip you think should get wider attention.

You count on Friday I think Luke??

Anyways, Martin Land makes a point about unethical Tories on LDV but of course the people who have no ethics in our neck of the woods are Lib Dems. Like Leech with his disgusting hospital hoax, persistently misleading P and Ps, and now a tax hike leaflet that beggars belief in its mendacity. Is this from Lib Dem Hoax Central or one of his own concoctions?

Yes London count starts at 8.30am and I think we will get GLA results during the afternoon, with delays where there are any council by-elections as they have to pull the papers out from those, then Mayor result in the evening.
