A few predictions
I've had an exhausting afternoon acting the role of Tessa Jowell (!) in the rehearsal for the BBC's election night programme - fun though if pretending to be a Labour Minister getting interrogated by David Dimbleby about some "interesting" imaginary election results is your idea of fun. Mr Dimbleby said I was "feisty" which I assume was intended as a compliment.
I'm going to chance my arm with a few predictions about tomorrow night's results:
1) The almost inevitable loss of Labour overall control in Reading will be offset by better results in the south in Oxford, Slough and maybe Hastings. All this will be ignored by the media as it doesn't fit their narrative of Labour southern retreat.
2) The West Midlands will see Labour either hold steady or gain seats, with the exception of Wolverhampton where it's touch and go that we'll keep control.
3) Liverpool will go from Lib Dem to No Overall Control.
4) In the rest of the North West Tory gains in Bury will be offset by a strong Labour performance in the Pennine boroughs. Again, this will be ignored by the media as it doesn't fit their narrative.
5) The Tories will spend a lot of time arguing about exactly how many fractions of a % above 40% they have edged.
6) There will be a continuation of last year's north-south divide in the results.
7) Wales is going to be fairly depressing.
8) I haven't got a clue what will happen with Ken vs Boris, but that's the one I'm working to affect rather than commenting on.
